Re: Anybody tried a Breed bridge in the neck?
I don't think the F1's are good pickups in the neck or the bridge. Hopefully the Breed bridge is a better, more quality sound than the F1. The F1 just sounds distant and lifeless. It sounds cheap to me. So I guess what I'm saying is that I doubt the Breed sounds "exactly" like the F1 because I've heard a Breed neck and I thought it was fantastic. It might be worth a try.
My main concern would be the high output and large number of winds. The Breed bridge would be the loudest neck pickup of all Dimarzio's other recommended neck pickups. That does usually make for a muddy neck pickup. Although I've tried original IBZUSA pickups in the neck and like them very much. Dimarzio doesn't follow the normal rules when it comes to winds vs. output vs. tonal properties. The worst thing that could happen is that you take it out, right?
