Certainly that's an option, but I really, really dig how smooth and quiet the split-coil Fender 55's sound. I would have to find some kind of "magic bullet" P/J combo to make me even consider taking it out of the formula. Interesting. Maybe it's because of my choice of strings at that time (Ernie Bass Cobalt Rounds), but the Quarter Pounders didn't sound muffled/muddy to my ears at all. It was all growl and very aggressive, which normally wouldn't be a bad thing for me, but adding in the Super 55 had almost zero-impact on the overall sound. That's saying something, given how beefy and strong the 55's tend to be. All that being said, I still plan on giving the MFD-P a whirl and see how it turns out.
