    Wanna try going full-blown single coil (as opposed to stacked humbucker) as I really love the contrast, and more or less always split my neck pickup whenever I'm on it anyway :shrug: JB/Aldrich/Distortion (whichever I'm in the mood for at the time, I seem to be cycling these at the moment :lol...

    I just need two more to complete the mods on my Charvels. Seriously, why are they so fucking hard to find in the UK? I've never attempted buying any before so never noticed, but good fucking god they never come up. Buying new is a little out of budget as they're £70+ each, or £200 for a set of...

    I have a Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter Pound in the neck position of my So Cal, and I'm really not digging it. This is quite a beefy guitar, really full and rich sounding, and the QP in the neck just sounds fat and characterless. Pretty much like a humbucker in tone, just not in output. There's...

    I've been going through all my pedals in the last couple days with my new Telestratster, and I've noticed how some of them really pop with single coils, particularly the Fulltone Fat-Boost, much more than with humbuckers (and even my humbucker-sized P90s). Any similar experiences?

    Long story short, since I never updated on this. I got ridiculously attached to the Spectrum in the first month I owned it. In the top 5 guitars I've played of all time, it's a weird guitar, but it suits me for some reason. It weighs nothing (this is why I bought it in the first place, I needed...

    I wired the Spectrum so that the middle position of the switch was the neck pickup, so that position 2 (or 4, depends on which way you are going) is neck and bridge and it sounds better for the kind of stuff I play than pretty much all the humbucker guitars I've ever had. The Explorer beats it...

    I'm assuming the answer is just 'it's just convention that's evolved'. And why, whenever there's a hum-single guitar, does the hum always have a bloody pickup ring? And why is belly button fluff always blue?

    This is a FS thread. The forum was screwing up for me and of course the time it successfully posts is the one time I forget to select something from the dropdown. Bareknuckle Cold Sweat neck, Warpig bridge, black coils, 6 string. Warpig is ceramic and F-spaced. The screw heads are a bit chewed...

    I bought an Ibanez JPM100 P2 and P3 recently, and the P3 (which is very beaten up) sounds drastically different to the P2. It sounds like single coils, not humbuckers. The output jack was a bit funky, so I just replaced it, and hoped that'd fix the issue, but it hasn't. I actually quite like the...

    I need two of 'em, they came on the old EX line of guitars that were H-S-S. I'll toss you whatever, or swap you a pair of lace golds.

    Ok, so my Suhr came with a pair of humbuckers, a three way blade, a volume, and a tone with a coil tap for both pickups. Tapped, I currently get the neck coil of the neck pickup, and (I'd have to check, but I imagine) the bridge coil of the bridge. Individually they sound awesome, but I mostly...

    Hi, I wanted to install a push-pull tone pot on my Sterling JP70 to split the humbuckers, but I was thinking about the switching of my Ibanez guitars and the one thing I like is the 2nd position of the 5-way switch where the coils of the neck humbucker are switched parallel. Now - as opposed...

    I was wondering what the best single coil pickups are for heavy? I know single coils are generally for a more blusey tone, but I have a S-S-H Kramer Focus and both single coils on it are broken from the previous owner, and also the Humbucker isn't very good but for that I know I'm getting a...

    I took today and tomorrow off (even though I'm actually working right now on stuff :( ), and I took about 30 minutes to play my actual amp, the amp that's sat dormant for months on end. I played my RG through it with the Evo in the bridge, which I quite like. Sounds good, typical RG through...

    So. I've been gradually growing bored with the humbucker sound. My playing style been leaning farther towards heavy rock, and I'm just not looking for the high gain modern metal sound anymore. Now, of course humbuckers don't have to sound like that, but I've been digging sounds like Ty Tabor's...

    I have 2x custom made 7 string single coils available. Both have Alnico 5 poles for the wound strings, Alnico 2 for the plain treble strings. They're overwound, intended for neck or middle positions when combined with a bridge position humbucker. Pickup 1 is wound with 8500 turns of 42 gauge...

    Looking to put some in my Soloist. Things I want -Excellent Cleans -Good with High Gain/No Mushing out -Relatively bright/cutting (the Rosewood Board/NT/JT-590 combo make this guitar quite warm) I tune DGCFAD and play a Rivera K-Tre into a Mesa Stilleto 212 (or a Recto 412). No brand...

    I had a Peavey 4x12 Black Widow cabinet back in the 80's. It would "electrify" the air, and you could feel the sound as much as you could hear it. I've never found anything since that had this effect. Unfortunately, I completely wore out the speakers. In fact, we opened it up to check them out...
