    Hmmm ... DCR of JB is 16.4, and I always thought that fullshred was "hotter" .... so what would i need to ask the custom shop to do to A5 43AWG S-Deco to have DCR say of 12.5, just a bit hotter than fullshred that is ...

    That's a good question. The thing is, the FS may be hitting your preamp harder than a JB becauae of the pickup's voicing and how you eq your rig. I'd ask the Custom Shop how to make a S Deco V hotter without compromising the tight low end and openness that it has. That's quite a tall order, I think.
    Ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby.

    Just did :-) it is also going to be angled - that always sounded to me a bit more punchy, so maybe it will translate to extra low end tightness to compensate some of it being lost due to extra hotness.

    Angled? Like a strat bridge pickup?

    You might be too young to remember, but angled humbuckers used to be a thing:

    c1990 Kramer Sustainer (NOS)
    2001 Epiphone Les Paul Custom
    2008 Byrd Super Avianti

    Amplifiers:

    Here is what custom shop got back to me with:

    We can make an
    overwound S-Deco to your specs. It should have a pretty
    tight low end.

    You can enter: Alnico 5,
    Moderate output, short mounting legs (unless you'd like
    long, which a 59 would have), four conductor wiring. wax
    potting: Yes.
    In the notes, you'll
    want to specify the precise DCR numbers that you'd like
    as well as 43AWG Plain Enamel wire, similar to S-Deco but
    hotter.

    BTW--Have you
    checked out the Custom 5? It's similar to a 59, wound to
    14.1K and has a resonant peak at the same frequency as a
    Full Shred. A bit hotter than the 12.5K you're asking
    for, but might save a few dollars and the lead time for the
    custom make

    What do you say gents ?

    Thanks!

    The Custom 5 didn't have the character that my S Deco has. It's not a bad pickup, but it's just kind of bland to me. It'a my least liked of all the Customs.

    I would advise not telling a winder what D.C. to wind it to. DC is an artifact of the wind, not a target factor. I would tell them what you want it to sound like and let them work it out. You'll get better results.
