    Normal JB and normal 59n are not great for me. I really dig the Dimebucker for non-metal applications.
    Ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby.

      I want to try this combo in a screw on neck superstrat with a Floyd before I write it off.

          No, stock 59n with JB. But 4 conductor pups into a 5 way switch with push/pulls on the volume and tone.

            Oh. Well, I hope you like it. For me, that's a cursed combo.

                  I truly like my Jazz necks; which do not seem to get a lot of love around here. I cannot say there is anything I am using for what I play, which I do not like.
                  I miss the 80's (girls) !!!

                    Dimebucker was specifically designed for his full-mahogany neck/body short-scale with the rosewood board and loose tension strings.

                    On the old Duncan website it was highly recommended for guitars with basswood bodies and rosewood boards, and after trying mine in several hosts over the years I strongly agree.

                    It really needs the combing effect on the highs that basswood can contribute, otherwise it can indeed get shrill in a hurry, especially with a floyd as intended.

                      Stag Mag. Bought it. Sold it. Bought it. Sold it. Bought it. Sold it. Love the concept, but I just never got it to work for me.

                        If you were trying it for the bridge, look into the Rio Grande Muy Grande.

                        It's got a very good single coil tone and in full series mode it is THICCCCCC....

                          Sounds interesting... how's the treble bite?

                          I love THICC tones, but I also need need need that bit of bite on the top end. That's why I've become such a big fan of A6 and A9 magnet swaps – I need that treble ZING that an A5 gives you, but I hate scooping the mids out, because I'm down with the thiccness

                            It still bites pretty hard. IDK if it's the top end or the very high upper mids, but pinch harmonics jump out of this thing and it has plenty of grind through a Marshall style amp. The bottom end is also tighter than, say, a JB, which is in the same ballpark as far as resistance, goes. It could be the wind, or the alnico poles, but it's an interesting pickup for sure.

                              So . . . what would you put this in? LP, SG, Strat, other: ______________

                                I've had it in a MIM strat that I converted to HSS. It kept up with the tone and output of the ceramic MIM pickups (which I really like for rock) REALLY well. I had it set up to auto split on pos 4 with 250k pots. One tone pot was assigned to the bridge, one to the neck, and the middle was wide open.

                                I also had it in a Squier Mustang HH shortly paired with an APHn and two 500k pots. Again, it was a good tonal pairing and had enough output to kick the front end of my Marshall pretty hard.
