    HS.

    I've never owned a guitar with a middle pickup, though I did borrow one from my uncle when I was 17 for about 6 months or so. Seeing as the middle position is the one I use the least by far, I'd really have no use for a pickup there (I do like how the single position sounds in HH, HS, HSS, HHH, SS, SSS, and so on guitars, but I just have never used it in a song for any band I've ever been in. The bridge and neck positions always seem like better options, personally). A single coil in the neck for leads and cleans can sound pretty nice.

    OK seem HS it will be. It was my first choice anyway so I still have an excuse to later get a new HSS guitar


    For now it will have the Duncan Distortion and an Area 67, since I will later change to the Suhr Aldrich I'm wondering what Suhr single should I put there? Are they also Noiseless like the Dimarzio Areas?

    I love the sound of the Middle S, but I learned on an HH, and the Middle S is right where I dig in when I pick, so it hit it whenever I go into my zone of just playing and not thinking, which kicks me out of the zone, so fuck you Middle S!

    Yeah... sure we can lower it a lot but then it loses punch and volume

    HS... the mark of a trVe metal lead guitar, it is known. The middle single coil is for those awkward nasal tones yuppies yern to hear.
