Hey guys. Apologies for not posting here more often, I do find it a great source of info and humour.
I'm talking to Tony (F1Filter) about some of the Duncans in the classified section and his offer of getting Wolfe to do rewinds on the JBs.
I have a few questions:
Just how much of a difference will I notice in a rewound JB to a standard one? Tony's already suggested that (quote) the main "problem" with JB's is that it seems Seymour Duncan has hyped the highs and lows a lot more on the later versions of the pickup. So you're getting a lot more top end "fizz" and the lows are a lot looser than the "original" spec. (/quote).......but is there more to it?
Does it add any particular value to the pickup or is the process expensive?
Is the turnover time long or is it a long winded process for someone like Wolfe?
Is the gauge of copper wire altered in any way or is it the exact same copper wire used in the rewind as on the original wind? Scatter/hand wound or similar to the JB winding, just a bit tighter or something?
Please assist, I am a rewind noob, I guess I just need to know just how different it's gonna sound to a normal modern JB, and if it's worth it.
Any help is greatly appreciated, and shall be rewarded with the hollow promise of cookies.
Before a Mr. Frank Falbo comes in here and rips me a new one. That's based on what I've been told by several members on here and SS.org in the past. (re: hyped fizz and loose bottom end).
Personally I just don't get along with JB's for that reason alone. Never heard an "earlier" version of the JB or a rewind. So at least in my case that's a primary reason why I've looked elsewhere.
