    i think the duck is a cool choice and if you dont split the buckers alll the positions will be humcancelling

    You mean in my 5 way switch like this:

    Switch 1: Neck Humbucker
    Switch 2: Neck Humbucker (Not splitted) + Duckbucker
    Switch 3: Duckbucker
    Switch 4: Bridge Humbucker (Not splitted) + Duckbucker
    Switch 5: Bridge Humbucker

    is that correct?

    Do I have to get an inverted polarity Duckbucker?

    I do not know the DiMarzio PUs. SSL2 (Vintage flat) works great for me with JB and HotRails (both full and split).
    I cannot confirm that its output is too weak for combination with high output HBs

    Well in my case my Humbuckers are "Air Norton" and "Tone Zone" but I was thinking to not use too much high gain for the positions 2, 3 and 4 of the 5 way switch but if you can recommend me a good one to use high gain let me know, also DiMarzio guys recommend me this Blue Velvet and FS-1, I also saw Vintage Staggered SS-1 as an option but I'm not sure yet, what do you think?

    it all depends on the sound you want.....neither choice is better until we know what you want

    Yes but Duckbucker is a little bit different, look at the pictures and you will see what I'm talking about

    i think that Young Angus is refering to for example SSL-1, which is a true single coil.

    Duckbucker is a bucker ^^ .... just in case you forgot

    Definitely a proper single coil, it will give you so much more versatility. Youll be able to get the thick humbucker sounds out of the bridge and neck by themselves and then youll get great stratty clean and quacky sounds from the middle by itself and positions 2 and 4.

    Its the best way to go!
