Scored a cheap 3 p'up faded flying v this weekend and should get it early this week. It has a 490T and two 490R alnico's fitted with a six way rotary switch.
Was thinking of ripping 'em out and going ceramic. Have an Explorer with 500T and 496R ceramics and get on with those ok.
Are the D.fingers awesome enough at 16k ? Thinking of one bridge and two neck, or what do you suggest for the middle p'up?
I have a new production DF in a guitar, and it's pretty sex. Very saturated and a bit scoopy, tho. Personally, I prefer the "Dirty Boy" from Smit's Handwound Guitar Pickups, which is based on the DF, but has a lot more clarity and is much more dynamic. He actually just made me a bunch of 7 string versions, too. One of my favorite metal bridge pickups, and runs about the same price as a new DF.
