    I was just wondering who was first with the MM + J configuration?

  2. I'm not sure, but i think it was Warwick, with the Dolphin around 1988-92 somewhere around there, they had it before anyone else i think..

    Lakland has really brought it into the spotlight tho.
  3. wasn't the Dolphin a J + double-J humbucker?

    I remember a BP interview with Dan Lakin, who said he'd been inspired by the Dolphin's coil select on the double-J, to do the same with a J + MM config.
  4. true, but i remember some dolphins with the EXACT pickup config as current Lakland today.
