Re: Humbucker From Hell
had one in a pgm500. didn't like it. sounded good, but wimpy from switch from a TZ in the bridge. plus the basswood didn't help it much. basswood is really flat as far as eq, so the pickup will determine more of the eq curve. the HFH is supposed to be a single coil with a hums output. which, for the most part, is true. being that basswood is not exactly touted as being a traditional strat wood, the HFH falls short of exhibiting more a strat vibe in the pgm. maybe if the HFH were in either alder or, even better, ash; these attributes would definitely be better exploited. personally, i would drop it into a mahogany body, but would go for an air norton/paf pro with a coil tap to get a single coil tone; depending on fat i wanted the single coil to be. now for basswood, i'd go for the fred, paf pro, paf joe with a coil tap to get the single coil. those would be a fatter single coil, and would still give you the option of a humbucker, where the HFH leaves little option.
