Nice! That's an awesome setup.

Just need a black or chrome cover for that middle single-coil.

Definitely interested to hear your thoughts on the 59/Custom hybrid.
Me too. I'd like to see how these production models stack up to the JB/Custom 5 hybrid I have in my Horus. It is way up there with one of my favorite pickups.

I'm terrible with sound adjectives, but the 59/Custom Hybrid is definitely bright and clear! Very present without being ice-picky. Pinch harmonics were just jumping out of the DC-10.

I'm almost afraid to see what will happen with the Stiletto :lol:



The SSL-5 is pretty cool… but the treble-side poles are low. I suppose that's what meant by staggered poles :lol:. It's not too bad, I sorta compensated by slightly raising the treble side and adjusting the bass side down a bit.

The Phat Cat is also awesome. Huge, round, and very dynamic. A monster on the clean channel! I had to lower it quite a bit to help match the output a bit with the Hybrid :lol:

All told, I think this is pretty much my perfect strat-like guitar. HSS, mahogany, and short-scale :)

Frank does a better job of describing it than I…
