  • The original trembucker

    If I look at the tone chart I'd say it's like a JB but specially configured for a Tremolo equipped guitar. So that means less highs and more bass?
    Am I terribly wrong here?
    Would it pair up with a '59n?

    you are right on the money, it is like a JB but more bass and a not so ice picky treble.
    you can use any neck pup you want but the PAtb1 neck is more calibrated for the bridge one

      Exelent! Thanks RG 2570. So, you own one?
      I love the JB in my RG but I always have the feeling that it should have more smoothness and bass. The '59 however is very fat, smooth but still gritty (probably because of the 2 extra ceramic magnets ) and has plenty of bass.
      I don't mind the looks of the PA trembuckers since I use plastic covers anyway.

        I read this the third time this week but never before... I can't imagine it has the JB "feeling" but maybe i'm wrong....

              Yeah you also have a JB in an RG right?
              I love the sound, great in the band mix but even then it can be on the bright side even with a 250K pot. I'll bet the JB will smoke in a heavy mahogany guitar.
              Does anyone know if the PATB1 has the same characteristics as the JB like the singing lead tone, harmonics?

                While you're waiting for a reply, you can compare the two with the SD samples if you haven't already....

                  Thanks, and yeah I did listen to those samples. They sound very different, the JB has a lot more sparkle in the cleans but in those clips I like the PATB dirty better, nice thick tone. That also one of the reasons I made this post because the specs seem to be similar yet these pickups seem to be totally different. Also does anyone know how the cleans are on the PATB1? They sounded kinda dull in the SD soundclips.

                    I listen to the samples and i hear nothing which is similar to the JB. btw the JB has nothing similar with any other clips (dirty) imo.
                    I found the PATB1 clip more similar to the Custom clip...

                      Ditto. I found those two to sound very close if not the same as well.

                        Eh guys, I didn't say that... I said on the spec charts the PATB and the JB seemed similar. In the clips they sound totally different.
                        Anyone else?

                          Also I find the Custom clip to be very different from the PATB clip. The Custom has more of that 'hollow' PAF tone. But yeah both pickups sound real fat.

                            hm yeah but the difference is much less then to the JB i wanted to say. i didn't check out all the clips but from those i listen to the custom was the closet to the PATB. btw i had the custom in my guitar and like the JB more..

                            I found the JB track is very special it' has so much more "sparkle" than the other clips. It sounds a bit thin on the first part of the riff imo..... like if you hit the string bad... I found this wired...

                            but i'm still interested in the main question - come on guys!!
