    I知 leaning towards the 67 in the neck and 58 in the middle. Also considering Zexcoils. Any experience with those?

    I put a push-pull pot on the tone control which gives me standard wiring (or my full humbucker version of it) or gives me just the three singles on their own.
    I値l talk with my tech about that one.

    Provided you don't mind the humbucker being visually a little lower than you might set it on other guitars, it's not a problem.
    Someone else mentioned this to me. I had a tech decades ago who steered me away from it. Said it would negatively effect the tone. So I haven稚 revisited it since. I値l give it a shot. Be wonderful if it works. Thanks!

    Grab a screwdriver and see. Go do it now! Set the humbucker 5/32" (4 mm) from the open strings. If you play with a clean clean tone it'll be identical just quieter, if you play with a dirty tone it'll like turning the gain back a notch. That's all. (Whether ot not you like that is a personal, subjective question).
