    I hear you! I have a drawer with half a dozen of Tom's pickups that I've tried, only to come full circle on the guitar I was originally trying them in. Although, the SFs replaced the SDs and a HW2...

    I used a set of SD1s for ages (which are extremely close to the SA1s). A tech ruined one of the SDs, so I found an SA1 to replace it, and the SA basically sounded the same as the SD in the guitar I...

    I think the SA would overpower the HC1+ slightly. But, it might be close if you just lower them down with the HC1+ up higher.

    There's a couple of things going for the HC3. First a darker bridge is...

    The SA1s sound best in single coil mode (which is quite a bit louder than the hum-cancelling mode - opposite to a split side by side humbucker). So if you like that mode (and I love it), then it will...

    Keep in mind that a mahogany neck/body short scale guitar like the Bulldog will have less of that sparkling clarity of a longer scale, maple neck, ash/alder/basswood bodied S type guitar -...

    Wow, exciting!

    I personally really like the look of the open covered PH, but I also like the look of the uncovered fibre bobbins of the HF and H series. But, I see all these great vintage looking...

    The H2+ has very wide hifi like presence with a powerful and full midrange and good bass compared to regular traditional PAF style humbuckers. Anderson's covered humbuckers (the HC series) have a...

    Nice! I like the look of the cream middle pickup.

    What do you prefer about the Gotoh 510 versus the Anderson trem?

    I love the 510, but I find the Anderson to be pretty much identical in feel...

    It might have been a 12mm that I use. I basically try them the ones around that size in the socket set until one seemed to bite without slipping. I need to check the set to see which one I used when...

    What Tom says. I just hold the 11mm socket in my fingers and turn - I don't even put it into the wrench. There is enough leverage by just holding the socket to tighten (or loosen) those screws more...

    It's hard to tell what the tonal effect the scale length has as my Cobra S is its own guitar (hollow maple/mahogany body, rosewood neck, rosewood fretboard). But, one thing I'll note is that with my...

    The SC1/SF1 hum cancelling mode is not as sparkly as the SD1 single coil mode. I haven't tried one, but the SC1- might get you there, as it'll be lower output and therefore more sparkly naturally,...

    Hard to tell with no actual technical details beyond the marketing buzzwords. All pickups are 'tuned capacitance and inductance' simply due to the choice of wire/insulator dielectric (enamel,...
