I'm thinking of trying out a humbucker in the bridge of my Strat with Surfers in it. I like the tone of the bridge slot but it doesn't have enough oomph. Before I got out and buy a new pup though, I'm gonna try my texas antiquity in there and see how I feel about it now. But I would like to know what hte consesus is on the SH-5 Custom. Does it sound good split? Would it pair well with the Surfers?
I've tried a JB before and I didn't really like it. I don't really like it in my friends LP either. The Custom seems good because it's not too hot.
Also, I was looking at the excess pickups I have lying around, and I came across my Texas Antiquity set. Now, I never got to try the ste with the middle pickup. It never worked. I didn't install them for about two months, so I didn't know they didn't work. But upon looking at it. There seems to be some black tar like substance on the coils on the middle pup. I wonder if this is why it doesn't work? No vibrating maybe? Can this be fixed?
