H/miniH/miniH pick up suggestions
« on: October 31, 2017, 09:06:16 AM »


i have a mahogany with maple top HSS guitar.

plan on having H /miniH/miniH instead of HSS

i have a JB sa bridge position

tried putting in artec dual rails 10K at middle and neck position and encountered some problems

1. at the same resistance of 10K hinde pantay and middle and neck pickup height ko. medyo malaki difference
2. dahil sagad na yung middle pickup height hindi kaya habulin ng middle and neck pickups yung output ng JB ko sa bridge
3. panget tunog pag coil split yung dual rails

so..... 
i think better i upgrade ko yung dual rails sa branded like dimarzios (read somewhere that dimarzio makes better dual rails than seymour duncuns)
i think mas higher output yung middle kesa sa neck pickup. (didnt expect malaki difference nila, unlike single coils na almost same resistance for middle and neck)
i think i need a dual rails na maganda i coil split

plan on keeping the JB sa bridge

any suggestions na pwede i match sa JB

thanks in advance

It's basically a HHH setup, pero since magkaiba ng brand yung wiring medyo complicated dahil magkaiba sila ng magnet orientation. You might have to reverse the orientation ng bridge pickup (screw poles, duncan logo towards the neck) mo just to get the proper coil splitting combination between the middle and bridge pickups. I suggest the Chopper or Air Norton S as your neck and middle pickup.

Best option is to go Dimarzio all the way.

breed or tonezone is ok pero it depends on the amp you use. personally ang favorite combination ko is steve's special sa bridge and air norton sa neck thru a mesa boogie or evo with a marshall.

If I were to change pups I'd go with

Neck: Chopper
Middle: Cruiser and
Bridge: PAF Pro (F-spaced)

Check this out for demo:

Check this out for demo:

ang nakikita kong potential problem dito sir is the output balance between the middle and neck pups

cruiser is low output and chopper is high output. baka sobrang taas ng height ng middle and low height ng neck pickup, or baka di magpantay ng volume output

on the video he is using a super distortion s sa middle which i think pwede i balance sa chopper kaso halos di niya ginamit yung super distortion sa video.
