Re: Neck Pickup- Fat but not Compressed- Breed/Air Norton/PAF Joe?
No I absolutely WILL consider it! Out of the box can flop sometimes, but sometimes it's great.
Yeah my concern with the Fred, which I've been leaning toward (thanks Sebastian), is that it's not FAT enough for my liking. Honestly I could care less if a pickup is still crisp and clear in the lower registers. I'm a rock, blues and somewhat metal player, but no shredder. My first DiMarzio was a Humbucker from Hell, and I can't stand it because it's so thin. Sure it's clear as a bell... but it's just not what a neck pickup is supposed to be, to me.
So Breed neck sounded good too... but I like this Norton idea. I've read it's like a cross between a Fred and a Tone Zone.
Anyone else ever used a Norton in the neck?
