  1. Thank you; I don't do the Facebook.

    Just the thought of G&L + Warwick gives me chills. CHILLS.

    I wonder if they made a prototype with the single pole piece directly under the string? I know the SB style MFD pickups have 2 per string also but i wonder what it would sound like with the L-series style pole pieces.

    Great question I never thought of that. Single pole might be the answer.

    It might sound good. I have to wonder if there’s enough room in a Jazz style pickup to get them wound the way they want to though. Seems like that might be the limiting factor.

    I think the fatter L-series polepieces would take up a lot of room in a standard Jazz pickup, they are pretty narrow. I bet it would sound great though!

    The first prototype set looked pretty much the same but with a long continuous hole in the pickup cover.

    Man I never considered this option, but since I own a WW Corvette and I love MFDs...

    Is it a JJ config too ? I just wonder if replacing the MEC pickups by MFDs is worth the effort. If they start selling these jazz format MFDs I'll probably order a set and try the mod...

    Aren't SB2 bridge pickups MFD single coil?

    I have in my stash, a prototype of the split single coil pickup, the covers are comprised of a SB1 cover cut in two and Super Glued together. Dated in 83 and signed by Leo . I need to get around to building a worthy home for them.

    I noticed that too about the Fullerton Standards. I was trying get a friend to look at one vs a MIM Fender, then I couldn't find them on the site. I saw a few leftovers for sale on Reverb.

    Yes, but we are eagerly awaiting the single coil in the Jazz style housing.

    Speaking of posting pics, this one comes my way soon. I am super pumped to get this in my hands. After playing Steve Araujo’s L2500 at NAMM, I had to have one! That SCM mode blew me away.

  17. Yeah I like Cherryburst too. G&L does a nice job on theirs. Your post reminds me of a few that I've been fortunate to have had. And an excuse to post pics!

  18. I'm sure the new s/c pickups will sound great, but I kinda wish they'd just reissue these bad boys. If they ever do, it's.....Game Over.

    It is a J/J configuration. I’m not sure how the passive MFD pickups would work with that preamp that’s in there. The MECs in there are also active.

    some real gems there. That’s gotta be the nicest SB2 I’ve ever seen. The L2K is no slouch either.
