    you only can choose one- Luke III - HH or SSH

    does anybody have experience with both the luke 3's ?
    I can only try out the HH and I think it's cleans are stellar and every position is usable
    I do not own a single coil instrument right now... but my inclination is to go HH

    what say you Luke 3 fans??

    I prefer HH but the HSS is great as well.

    I love the singles on the HSS. Of course the bucker sounds incredible too. I'm sure I'd love the HH model as well but for me it's HSS. nice tonal variety, especially if you want something different, pickup wise.

    Don't tempt me Mario... I'm itching for something with a Roeswood neck! By the way, did you play the HH Luke 3 at the GC in Vegas when you were out?

    Oh Mat, you should definitely take the plunge. Rosewood neck goodness with monster tone.

    I didn't get a chance to make it out to the GC, bummer. I really want to check out the HH model.

    BTW, I love your wife's taste in guitars! Please have her call my wife.

    Hey hey, first post...woop etc.

    I've just purchased a HSS version (my first MM). I'm normally a HH guy, the change was part of the lure for me.

    I got a welcome chance to play both side by side at Bass Central in the Orlando area. I went in expecting to like the HH more, but I actually preferred the HSS. The HH five way switching scheme to me just seems awkward, particularly in a gig situation. That's why I changed out my Albert Lee HH to a three way switch, with 'bucker sized P-90s.

    For me, the HSS configuration was a bit more versatile tonally, too. I absolutely adore the sound of a neck position single coil.

    That preamp (aka boost) is the bee's knees! Love that!

    Luke III HH - tried last sunday at a guitar show in Milan (Luke was there, too. Photo or it didn't happen attached), sounds AWESOME! Cleans are amazing. And crunch in position 2 and 4 are great as well.

    you only can choose one- Luke III - HH or SSH-denny-luke-jpg

    Which would you said would be better for jazz and blues ? HH or the HSS.

    If I'm playing blues with a Luke I want HSS. Can't speak to the jazz comment as jazz isn't my thing much. I bought a Luke because I wanted a guitar with a single coil neck pickup and the Luke guitars have the best sounding single coil neck pups I've heard. That goes for the EMG or the new Dimarzio's in the Luke III's. Both are fabulous pickups.
