Re: a different kind of Breed...
Since I'm gunna get a Paf Joe, that pickup has the Airbucker technology. So now I'm thinking of "Airbuck'ing" my Breeds to get them to "match" to the Joe a little better.
So I have a couple of questions modifying the pickups.
First off, I've heard that the Airbucking Technology decreases output a little and increases pick attack sensitivity. What else does it do? Does it change the EQ at all? Tighten up the bass?
Secondly, I know that Airbucking is just the magnet not directly touching the pole pieces so Dimarzio puts something between the magnet and the poles to create this "air gap". So what does Dimarzio use? A piece of paper, a credit card, a piece of plastic? If so... how thick is this thing... like 1" thick?
and again... if I Airbucker both my Breeds, which one should I stick into the bridge position... keep the Air Breed Bridge or Move the Air Breed Neck?
I'll try Air'ing both pickups first and see how it changes them... maybe I'll like them more.
