    How many other winders here do higher DC or output stuff and how many would be down for doing some sort of shoot out similar to what Jamman did for the PAF style stuff. Not a contest more like a sound board for the MLP.

    I don't think I'd qualify. Nothing hotter than about 12,000 turns on an A5.

    I'd be into checking out the clips though, if it come together.

    I just think it would be fun. I know a lot of guys are worried that say something in the 14k range is to hot and think well I will lose that vintage edge. I just would like some of the other winders to show the other side of the coin.

    I like lower output pickups but the JB is pretty hot and it does what it does well. I also had a WCR Ironman which is over 20k and it was a mean machine - very good for the ehavy styles.

    Yeah maybe do just Bridge pups in a super strat type setting. Hmmmmmmm now the brain is turning. Time to call some friends and maybe kick this off myself just for some fun.

    That's a great idea . I hope someone would "pickup" :lol: the idea and try to run with it . It gets to be a lot of work (at least for me, it was) but the end results are a win-win for everybody .

    Not many high output winders around, and MLP seems to show little interest in such tones compared to the old school tones, just a few nuts around here that can dig on hot winds and/or strong magnets, I AM ONE OF THOSE NUTS :D The 21k MHD is very unique and will never part with it, reminds me of pageys spanky/sparkly toned black axe he pulls out mid set in "The Song Remains The Same", only on steroids :shock:

    I actually threw an A8 in davids pagey 2 bridge and wont look back, dont tell Dr Zhang :D He'd likely slap me upside the head :laugh2:

    But its got what I crave...

    More than like he will hunt you down and dump a bunch GFS and Ceramic Pickups on you along with some hot wax.

    ^A3 neck, so its still got vintage hollow flavor ;) It was an experiment, but ended up sticking...everyones different I guess, nothing but compliments from friends and rockers so far, really good feedback, and personally I agree, tough and delicate all in one, Dave (A Student) said it sounds like someone singing more than a guitar at times :)

    Thats the juice i need brother, dont like it...bummer for you :laugh2:

    I guess my reputation deceives me, but I don't have a problem with A8 mags, I offer it on some of the higher output bridge models I make. I'll even put it in a vintagey model. 14.5k/43AWG is my wind limit though.

    I'd be interested!

    I love the JB and at ~16k its pretty hot, but very useful for many rockin' applications. I think there are a lot of pickups in that range that people would love to hear in a comparison.

    That is what I think. I think the hotter side of things scares people off. Is my business suffering nope. But I think some just do not think they can go vintage with a tweak of the volume.

    Don't know for sure but I suspect it's 44 AWG which would put it more or less on par with Duncan's 14/43 line-up, maybe a tad thinner.

    i think it'd be worth doing as it's bound to readjust at least one person's perception of what a 'hot' humbucker can sound like.
