I’m getting kind of bored with humbuckers and was curious to know what other alternate humbucker-sized pickups you’ve tried to make things more interesting.
Years ago I tried some TV Jones powertrons that were pretty cool.
anyway any suggestions to mix it up and get some more unique sounds?
Guys, I need serous help from your collective knowledge.
my question is how does anyone, ever get a good sound out of a neck humbucker (not too muddy and huge) without making the bridge sound horrible?? Talking about with a les Paul, the neck

I thought I’d share some interesting info on fender amps for general internet knowledge and posterity and to counter a common myth I’ve heard for decades.
This is info I got from a very pleasant and interesting phone call I had about a year ago with amp legend Bob Rissi (Fender amp...
This is inspired by another thread but maybe someone can fill me in on what I’m missing.

I wanted to post about this bridge since there doesn't seem that be a lot of info out there.
I recently got a 2016 r8 and this thing was just so piercingly bright it was awful. I realized it was the hardware (what is Gibson doing with the recent hardware?!) and started swapping in vintage...
Recently I picked up a Matchless RV-2 reverb. I'm not too into reverb with amps, but thought I'd also be able to use it in the studio.
Good gracious, what a sound. Never liked fender verb units, but this thing is very natural. I've been using it on keys, percussion, vocals, bass, acoustic...
I've been reading lurking here for some time thought it was about time I contribute something. First a brief into so you know where I'm coming from:
I've been building and modifying amps for about 15 years, not commercially, just for myself and friends. I run a recording studio as well and am...
