    Best/Favorite Pat# Reproductions

    Looking to get a set of Pat# repros that would be suited to my 1964 ES345 reissue. It seems to be a very specific era of pickup that not many manufacturers focus on. The only two I have found so far are Brandonwound and the richer tastes of Throbak and Rewind but curious to hear any other...

    Neck pickup stronger than Bridge...should I swap them?

    In my R8, the neck pickup measures stronger than the bridge pickup, 7.88k to 7.09k. Tonewise, the bridge pickup is a bit bright but I don't mind the tone necessarily, even if I do prefer my ES345. Swapping them would theoretically make the guitar sound more balanced, no?
