Seymour Duncan Custom Custom Humbucker - Any Comments!!

I'm thinking of replacing my PAF Pro for a Seymour Duncan Custom Custom. I have a RG3120 and I'd like to replace the neck pickup. What do you guys think.

Seymour Duncan Custom Custom Humbucker

I've never tried it in the neck position, but heard only good things from people who have. *If you have a Tone Zone in the bridge I would recommend the Air Norton, it's fat and warm, not as bright as the Paf Pro. But if you're set on the SD I have one, you can email me if interested.

Great bridge pickup, a little too hot for a neck pickup IMHO.

Re: Seymour Duncan Custom Custom Humbucker - Any Comments!!

Looks like everyone gave the same answer, and I agree. (although I'm sure since 2001 they've gotten it figured out!) One thing that I'd like to point out is that the Duncan catalog posts the "bass" on the CC as being even lower than the JB. That's misleading. The response curve of the CC is more smooth and even across the board IMO. So it's much warmer and has more kick in the low end than the JB. The JB may test higher in the bass on a machine, but when you actually play one, the piercing upper mids and treble overpower the bass. I wouldn't advocate the JB in the neck either. But that's why the CC would be far too mushy and dull in the neck position, even though it's listed as having reduced lows. In the bridge, however, it's one of my favorites, and I have two. That says a lot because I have 30+ guitars and that's the only pickup (besides a couple stock IBZUSA's) that appears twice in my collection.

I prefer those PAF pros.

Better for fast picking stuff, and more clarity.

If you want a neck swap, just try the JAZZ Model.
And it's really HOT, not jazzy...
Sounds like an Air Norton to me.
The Custom Custom is the best bridge PU i've tried in my life, with mahog body.
