Hey guys...I've noticed a few people mentioning before that certain pickups (I think the one that was specifically mentioned was the Duncan JB) sound different between the standard and Trembucker spaced versions. I'm thinking about changing out the SH-6 Distortion in one of my guitars for a Custom, but I'm unsure whether to go for the SH-5 or TB-5.
I realize that it's mostly a cosmetic difference, and that the magnetic field isn't particularly different, but since the coils are slightly wider with the TBs, is there enough of a sonic difference to matter?
I have heard mostly from knowledgeable guys... ie Max, Dave, etc. that the trem spaced Duncan's all sound like shit. The few new JB's I have played that were trem spaced all were horrible. All of the old regular spaced JB's I have played were awesome. I would go with normal spacing.
