  • Suitable pickup configuration for Hohner G3T

    I currently own a Hohner G3T headless guitar with Steinberger Tremolo and HSS pickup configuration (look at Since I've only played Les Paul guitars so far I encontered a few problems with the EMG pickups the guitar comes with.
    Though the bridge humbucker serves my style quite well (I play rock and blues in a ZZ TOP coverband), the neck and middle single coils are rather weak. They don't sound bad though, just the volume output is too low.
    This leads to volume problems when playing solos with the neck pickup in a blues song - it sounds much too gentle. I am about to change the pickups to Seymour Duncans, but I'm still lost regarding the suitable pickup configuration. I thought one TB-4 JB Trembucker and two SSL-1 Vintage Staggered Single Coils could be OK, but don't know yet. Is there anyone here who can help me figure out what to do best?
