About a month ago someone on Ebay read my review of the original and sent me thay Spec sheet from the early Dirnt's. I thought , a ha , more evidence. I recently found a Custom winder in NewYork that is winding a split coil P pickup with a taller coil/longer pole pieces and winds it all the way to 20 k ohms, using different size wire. It's an even more growly'er pickup but it looses just a little on the very high end. I like it even more than the Dirnt and I roll the tone off the dirnts a little anyway. It was worth the $120 to try and call his bluff but, I can't afford to replace all my split coils with one. It would be a grand, lol. He's got one in his Dirnt and sold me his stock pickup as my spare.
