    What's your favorite?

    What is your favorite pickup setting? If you could have a guitar or bass wired any way possible, what combinations and configurations would you choose?

    If I had an HSH I would want (bridge to neck):

    1) 1s2
    2) 2p3
    3) 3s5 (5 out of phase)
    4) 3p5
    5) 4s5

    Pretty traditional except that middle position. I dig that for a biting, harmonically rich lead sound. Also I've found that I really dig 2p3 as opposed to 1p3. It's a little more rich as the 2 coil is a little further from the bridge than the 1 coil.
    "Hello! This is A.J.! How can I help you?"

    If you have any questions or concerns please email me: aj@ernieball.com

    PMs and messages written on my wall are not addressed as quickly as emails.

    If you want to know when your instrument was completed please post in one of the serial number threads.

    If you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. You begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience. - John Cage

    I'll see if I can record some sounds and post them to SoundCloud tomorrow.
