    Aww yeah, Zakk's is just the shizz - love the colour. Frank's has more features than a space shuttle , but hangs in a niche, like a holy relic.

    Good luck getting a replacement pickup bezel for one of these!

    I'm late to the show here but I had KMD make these for me back in 1985, triplebucker rails, fits in a standard humbucker case, they are in my 1972 Hagrom Swede wired for all options:
    They are triple rail triplebuckers epoxy potted.

    I have switching available for every possible combination of single, dual, triple, series parallel, phase options via 3 push pull pots and the 2 double pole triple throw switches on the upper bout of the body.
    Lots of fun.

    Back in the late 70's the first triple bucker I ever saw was in an Ibanez Iceman.

    In the early 80's, Mighty Mite marketed the MotherBucker. I put one in my Tele, wired up with a trio of 3 position switches for coil tapping, phasing, etc. I could get the fattest blues-rock honk to a stilletto sharp funk rhythym - it was great!

    Then came the triple bucker on the Hamers.... Basically a single coil paired with a humbucker. Didn't have the wiring choices the MotherBucker did, but it had some cool tones.

    Last year, a client wanted that Hamer Phantom sound in his G&L Fallout, so I added a single coil next to the humbucker. Again - great tones, and the client loved it. Picture posted in later post.

    well i would make a custom ring and mount the YJM set on there wired on series with each other as neck pickup and for the bridge something stupid like a Slug wired on series with whatever that is currently the hottest tele bridge pickup

    Pic of the G&L added.... The volume was a pull switch that activated the single coil.

    I'd use up that for three single coils with Single/Parallel/Series switching: From bridge -> Twang Banger, SSL-7,SSL-5.
