As some of you know, I have a red 24-fret Gibson SG Standard -
I like this thing a lot - love the neck, and I even I like the Tony Iommi bridge bucker. I don't like the firebird neck pickup... it seems thin, weak, and a bit too bright for my tastes. I don't plan to do anything about it right away, but here in a few months I may look at a solution.
So. I know several companies make mini-buckers and those who do often make the firebird style as well. I'd like something relatively hot, but not so hot that it gets muddy and lost. Articulate but with a sort of dark quality that can be pushed without getting fizzy.
Suggestions? I'd heard that Bare Knuckle does not make mini-buckers but will rewind one for you. I haven't even checked the price on that.
Thanks - just noodling this through.
If you're going to go the rewind route, I'd go with Wolfetone, based on how highly all of the NoVa mg.org folk think of him.
