Re: ISCV2 v HS2
I have the HS-2 in several of my RGs and really like it.
I also like the ISCV2. They both have a nice single coil tone.
The HS-2 sounds like it has just a little more twang to it, while the ISCV2 sounds a bit warmer and flat.
In finding a good single coil to match up with the Breeds--I actually like the HS-2 better. In fact, I swapped out the middle pickup of my Breed equipped Jem 77VBK in favor of the HS-2.
I like the ISCV2 better with Evos, though.
All-in-all, that supplier glitch worked to your advantage in this case!
