Thanks for the reply. I have a 1980 Tokai LC (Custom copy) that will need a neck pickup and I'm leaning to the Shaw Revival. You entertained my earlier custom questions about matching the new neck HB to my Chicago 68. While I'm curious about a possible custom wind in the vein of the Kossoff out of phase with itself HB (and its apparent use of PE on slug coil and Heavy Formvar on screw coil), I might err on the safe side with your standard spec Shaw (red Poly). The Tokai has a rosewood fretboard instead of ebony so I think I could use the apparent brightness of the Shaw to accentuate high end. I don't like woofy/bassy neck pickups, so I'm really looking for an articulate neck HB.
