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.
