Other than changing my bridge control tone pot cap value to .022 from .015 plus the No Load control pot,this PGB/Custom A2 will stay in this guitar...Nothing else that I've tryed in this guitar can give me the clean and clear tones of a 59B bridge pickup,but with that added harmonic content and balls from the custom's coil...I have tryed several different bridge humbuckers in this guitar and it's brought me right back to the bridge hybrid..This one speaks clearly but it can also growl..
I Like this pickup alot....I've re-done some wiring in this guitar and I'm not trying anymore bridge pickups in this guitar! Bachtorock wants me to try a Jazz/Custom in the neck and once I find a cheap Jazz pickup,I'll try it,but I'm really happy with what I've got right now..
The A2 version of this Hybrid sounds really nice...It seems plenty tight and it's not overly toppy and I can always dial the tone control back a hair to warm it up further....I can tell that the pickup will cut right with my band and not be to bright..The A2 is really sweet and has really nice character with this pickup.
The 59N with an A4 is a really great fix for that woofyness in the neck of a LP and I Like the way the 59N is eq'd....
