I have a 2 conductor SD-59 neck pickup, and a 4 conductor SD-59 bridge in my SG Standard. I've wired up a switch a la the Seymour Duncan Jimmy Page diagram to get the pickups out of phase with each other. I like it, but it seems to be a "thinner" out of phase tone than others I've...
I know I'm using a different coil with the non-SD schematic in my last post, but my question is if the wiring in that non-SD schematic causes the humbucker to function differently when the switches are NOT engaged, vs. the SD schematic.
Does that make sense?
Ding ding ding! That makes sense. Okay. Good. Thanks man!
I suppose my question now is, should there be any discernible difference if I wire together red/white or green/black AND just use it as a normal, un-split, in-phase humbucker? I like the extra quacky tone I'm getting with it wired...
I'm just now getting into coil tapping and phase splitting, but have noticed two different ways to wire up a phase switch on a Seymour Duncan '59.
The Seymour Duncan schematic says wire the red/white together and use the green/black for the phase reversal.
A random web...
FWIW, I've gone through the following on my 2004 SG Standard:
- Stock pickups
- Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers in both positions
- WCR Goodwood in the bridge, and Crossroads in the neck
- Seymour Duncan '59s in both positions
My favorite combination by far has been the '59s. Really, really...
I have a like new SH-1N '59 neck pickup, 2-conductor, with a nickel cover, but I want to trade it for a 4-conductor version. Nickel cover only, please. I know that's a long shot, so I'm not opposed to selling this pickup and simply buying a 4-conductor neck if I have to.
I'd also be open to a Classic/Classic set......but I think I'd prefer a Classic/Classic +.
I also wouldn't be opposed to a set of Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups.
Lemme know whatchya got...
....and sell them to me. I want a '57 Classic neck and '57 Classic + bridge pickup for my SG.
I'd like them to be post-1999, as I've heard the newer ones are made differently.
I don't care if they're ugly and dirty....just so long as they work and have enough lead length for my SG.
I suppose I can include pre-'08 Standards to this list. Pretty much any great playing Gold Top or Honeyburst. I'm more interested in the quality of the guitar's sonic/acoustic properties than it being a Traditional, per se.
I'd be open to a good R7, even a "well played" one...though I...
That's what I'm looking for. Thanks.
I'd love to have an R7, but I just can't swing the cost. Maybe later....but really, I'm not that good of a player to warrant a R7 anyway, so who cares? :)
I e-mailed Gibson regarding the tenon in the Traditionals, so we'll see what they say. I'm still...
Very cool...thanks so much. I played a Traditional Plus (I believe it was a "plus" variant, as it had a very flamed, nice top....) and it was a nice guitar. I didn't think about the neck joint at all, and didn't compare it to a Historic. In reality, I've played some "quality" guitars that...
