    (psst, I just bought a Fast Track 1, I tried to ignore the Chopper/Aldrich discrepency, but I can't, the Chopper is just too hot/loud for a neck pickup in this guitar, however I do have a Jackson that I plan on putting an X2n in the bridge of, so it can go in there )

    I'm nothing if not subtle.

    I've abandoned the quest for a single-sized humbucker neck pickup. Always disappointed. I installed a Dimarzio Vintage Heavy Blues 2 in my Warmoth-Charvel and couldn't be happier. I now embrace the single-coiliness of it. Still can't stand a single coil in the bridge though.

    Given that it has - to my ears - less presence and a little more midrange than a "true" singlecoil, as well as a heck of a lot more output, I always thought that was a very good one to pair with humbuckers. Glad you're happy!

    I may have to try that some day...

    But for now, I'm happy with the Chopper.

    I put the Fast Track in, and my first impressions were... huh... pretty identical EQ, but just, like, half the output.

    Started to question my sanity.

    I put the Hot Rails back in as a point of reference... REALLY bassy, way more than the Chopper ever was, and I don't know how that went unnoticed.

    Put the Chopper back in. Really great. Must have just been one of those weird brain-fart moments.

    Oh well. Got a spare Fast Track kicking around now which I might put in the middle position of this Jackson I've scored recently. In fact yes. I shall.

    Going back to the Duncan Hot Rails for a moment, now I've got a point of reference, it's a truly terrible pickup. Especially for a neck pickup (and this is the neck model!). Such chopped-off highs, really dark and boomy. It's the sort of thing some people prefer as a neck pickup (i.e. all smooth, no bite) but not me. Very toneless and bland. It split quite well though, I'll give it that.
