DBK vs VWH - pickup question/opinion
i have never really played around with the DBK until yesterday.
i must say, i was absolutely shocked when i first picked it up. before even plugging it in, i already didnt have a great feeling about it. my hands are medium sized and my fingers arent too long, and that neck just did not feel good at all, way way to thin. then i plugged it in, and essentially did an A/B test with the DBK and VWH.
i must say, any reservations i had about the feel were severly pushed back when faced with the sound. those breed's are f-ing killer ass great. not as much the bridge (im a dead stickler for the EVO bridge), but the neck pickup was one of the best sounds i have ever heard come out of any guitar period. i have always loved the sound of an alder guitar with EVO's and a floyd. but this breed pickup just sounded so good im speechless.
anyways, my question is this, how would a breed neck match up with an EVO in thebridge? would a basswood guitar or alder guitar respond better? if anyone has experience with the breed neck in an alder guitar, would they be willing to describe the sound as compared to the EVO neck in alder?
if that neck wasnt so thin, id buy that guitar in a second.
