most versatile pickup configuration..

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by mollin man, Mar 22, 2006.

  1. i'm in the process of building pickups for a custom 6 string i'm building and was wondering as to what sort of pickups to build.

    i play mostly rock and some metal (when required:rolleyes: ) but have recently taken an intrest in jazz too and would like to have something versitile enough to cover them all, perhaps not perfectly but a close approximation...

    i will most likely be using an agular OBP - 3 preamp on this thing too.

    thanks in advance,
    Mollin Man.

    *edit* i've been leaning towards a j/j configuration myself but i'm worried about hum.

    get split coil js. all the fun of js, less the noise of singles. or just get a set of villex singles. cos theyre super rad. and noiseless
  4. thanks! does anybody have a pic of the windings of a split coil j? if i see it, i can wind it my self.. (which was my plan all along)
