I think the point is that the thread is no longer valid as neither pickup set exists. Oh...maybe they do... well then the point is that nobody had both sets... oh wait, I have a set of the SLE 101 LTD and a couple Duncan Bonamassa sets...
Well I can't possibly have an opinion on them, but then again, maybe I do. They both kick serious ass and someone's money would be well spent on either set. The SLE 101 LTD's are out of production though so good luck finding them! I feel privileged to own my set.
The Bonamassa set has a bit more edge to them whereas the Throbak are a touch smoother. I had a bit of a time adjusting the JB set though as I had to bump the neck way up close to the strings for best tone and balance. The Throbak needed some adjusting but had a larger window of awesome tone.
Duncan's = more nasal, raspy and edgy
Throbak = more smooth and full.
Good info and much appreciated!
I've been researching many forums and looking for as much info as I can on PAFs. I've mainly been a Tele player for a long time but finally decided to play more Les Paul.
I do know I would be more inclined to the "edgy" and "raspy" tone rather than the smooth and thicker tone. So, that's what I'm trying to figure out here. Ultimately I will probably buy a few different sets and experiment.
