    Has anyone here added a second (neck position) MFD pickup to a G&L Climax (effectively making it an L2000)? I'm planning to do this and would appreciate benefitting from anyone's prior experience.

    Someone on TB did this to an L-1500, the successor to the Climax, and has written about it. Go to the G&L Forum on TB, and run a search. It might be in the "L-1500/1505 Appreciation" thread. In case you're not aware already, the Climax's pickup is further from the bridge than the L-2000's bridge pickup, so you won't be duplicating an L-2000. If you want the neck pickup in the same position as the L-2000's, the pickups will be very close to each other, sort of like a Warwick Corvette $$.

    I have an L-1500, and think it would be really cool to add a high output noiseless J-type pickup around the position of the L-2000 neck pickup's outer coil.
