So I have been going round and round with what new pups to put in my Godin LG HMB. After a lot of reading, I've decided on a custom 5 bridge and jazz neck.
The thing is that the Godin comes stock with a 5-way super switch, and usually runs 1) neck coils series, 2) neck split, 3) both HB (in parallel), 4) bridge split, 5) bridge coils series.
Since I hate noise, I don't split coils, so I am thinking of changing the wiring so that position 2 is both inside coils in parallel (stratish) and position 4 is both coils of the custom 5 in parallel.
Has anyone tried a C5 in parallel? My concern is that it would notch the a lot. But I don't mind split sounds, I just hate hum.
I have read that people trying a C8 in parallel can get a C5-ish tone.
