    Thanks! I prefer the slight less scooped sound (to my ears) of the Singlecut, but they both sound very good.

    SC hollowbody=fuller sound to my ears; less scooped is a fairly good description!

    Thanks Mike

    Peace, JP

    A little bump....

    Some hollowbody related threads may benefit from those sound clips!

    Great clips, JP. Thanks for the post. I personally prefer the Singlecut's sound.

    I love 'em. What's the setup, stacked? single coil?

    well it's a special design. imagine a regular dual coil, flip the two coils at 90° so they are horizontal and then separate them with a steel plate that will come and sense the strings ;)

    You got it.

    Humbuncking operation but true singlecoil punch and precision.

    Hope it answers your question.

    Peace, JP
  11. I personally like the singlecut for fingerstyle and the plume for slap.

    I have my computer hooked up to my stereo, so I can here them the way they should be heard!...no tinny computer speakers for me!!!

    sounds good ari!

    That's it peter.

    That's kent armstrong design, not mine. Tey call it their SS design.

    magnets are inside the coils.

    Peace, JP

    Oh that's a great idea. Why didn't I think of that? :D

    I wonder if that's what Lane Poor was using? I forgot the wording he used, but I could never quite figure out how they were supposed to be differen from other hum-canceling designs.
