...Crossposted, and with no pics!

After coveting a rewind for my Soloist 7 neck pickup since Dave got one for the neck of his KXK Proto-V with the set of Duncan Design rewinds he bought from Mesh, I finally found someone selling some Duncan Design 7 string pickups. (Actually 2 someones - thanks, Chris and Chris!) So, I buy them, and a month and two phone chats with Wolfe later, a box arrives at Dave's house. (Why he sent them there, I have no idea. )

Anyway, the verdict is:

:hsquid:

The pickup, which now reads about 9.2K as opposed to the 8.7K of the Jazz that was in there originally, has the bell-like roundness of the Jazz with more clarity, and somehow it's punchier, too. In short, it's an excellent soloing pickup, and mixes awesomely with the Wolfetone JB rewind in the bridge for middle-position clean tones. The man has never failed me.

I wonder if anyone else's Wolfetone rewinds have turned up at Dave's house :lol:

Wolfe has the best customer service. Even if you didn't order anything you still might get something. :lol:

I'm glad the pickup rocks. :yesway:

Maybe Wolfe thinks Dave's tone sucks? :lol:
Which would be awesome, since I've got his pickups in my two main guitars. :lol:

Mike, I didn't know you had a Jazz in the neck position of your Soloist. I never really think of that as a neck pickup.

Of course, that's a great sounding guitar, so you could probably put Ibanez pickups in there and still get decent sound. :lol:

I've always thought of the Jazz as a neck pickup :scratch:

I bet it sounds awesome... I'm a huge fan of the "idealized" JB sound, so I'd probably dig these.

The original Rhoads guitars came with a Distortion/Jazz pairing. I had that pairing in a lot of my guitars in the '80s, until I realized I hated the Distortion. :lol:

True, but the Wolfes take it to the next level. It'll be interesting to see what they do to the Washburn...

It's pretty much exactly what I was wanting - the same sweet tone, just clearer.

WTF was I thinking when I posted before??? Of course the Jazz is a great neck pickup. I was thinking of the JB.... :nuts:

I wasn't drinking, I swear. :lol:
