So I finally got my 560 back from the shop.
I've only played it a little bit but wow, the AT-1 is AMAZING. It's so clear and plays amazing on clean channel. Switch to high gain stuff and it stays REALLY clear and imo the best possible setting is some gain with pumped volume. The notes just sing so clearly (even for a guitar hack like me who can't even get my squealies down perfect every time).
Speaking of harmonics, Even for a noob like me, it's so easy to get harmonics to just sing.
The cruisers are awesome. The bridge in the neck position is just incredible. The notes stay clear, even with some gain and are overall very balanced.
Now keep in mind, Andy has an alder body hardtail with maple neck/fretboard, this 560 is basswood body with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. His guitar is also a 22 fret 25" scale, mine is a standard Ibanez RG (24 fret, 24" scale iirc),. Even so, all of these pickups sound AMAZING.
As for the coil tapping, I didnt do it with the AT-1 and middle cruiser. I set it up standard strat HSS with the full AT-1 linked to the middle. It's awesome. I'm so glad I did it this way. The overall balance of both pups really stand out and give it a little more meat than just the middle single.
Overall, this is probably the best pickup swap I've done on any of my guitars. The sound is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
