    I'm quoting myself here, because I've come a long way in a year. Both in my playing, and my ability to hear more subtle differences in pickups. (And having now owned both a CC and C5.)

    I'm still a bit on the fence as to which is "better" - I like them both. But clearly, the CC is smoother. I might lean towards the CC in this comparison.

    It might also be worth noting that the C5 has become my favorite bridge pup, and its quite smooth, partly because I'm using it with 250k pots. (Or close.)

    Your guitaring is great. I always thought wld like the CC better but you proved me wrong I like the C5 better out here. It absolutly does not sound harsh, but MUSICAL I wld say.

    I am a C5 user but no doubt here , for this kind of blues music the CC is much better but for a higher gain situation the C5 would be tighter and punchier .
    The CC remind me of the fluid tone of J.Winter with his firebird ( alnico2 pickups i guess )

    I think it depends on the guitar. In a mahogany bodied guitar, I think the C5 is wicked. The Godin lgHMB is an excellent example. On the other hand, the CC would be a must for a maple necked alder bodied guitar with a floyd bridge.

    I just realized I revived an old thread, and I voted twice not realizing I had done so a long time ago, LOL. That being said, at least I'm consistant as I voted for the CC both times

    I love the tone on that CC clip!

    I've never tried a CC. Maybe it's time.

    The C5 reminds me of one of my cold ex-girlfriends... Definitely diggin' the CC more... Warm, smoothe, better overall tone...

    Definately the CC. I listened to both clips repeatedly, and in rapid succession, like one piece of one then other other. The CC just sounded richer and more musical. That's a great pick up.

    I liked both clips and I thought both pickups sounded dang good. The C5 had a nice top end bite to it and the CC just sang a bit more. I can see tons of uses for both. I voted for the CC but I would have liked Marin to do a lip using the JB too. I would have like to have heard that pickup compared to the other two.
