Hi. To give you an idea of the tonal combo I've created so far, I am doing a spruce top semi-hollow flat-top (don't know how to make an archtop) with a back of laminated maple/mahogany. The neck is a Warmoth roasted maple/Indian Rosewood fretboard. I'm using SDs in a sm-1b/sm-3n combo after reading this article: SD Mini-Humbuckers and the Hofner Beatle Bass Strings will be D'Addario Chromes light gauge flats. So now the question is, to get Beatle bass tone, 250k? or 500k? I know the general rule with single-coil vs humbucker but wasn't sure if that applied to mini-humbuckers. Thanks!
