    alright so @Noisy Humbucker cleared up what the wires were (they were for going between pots or a bus) and that I don't need them. Guess I should get to installing the moderns then :D

    got the moderns installed. The hf tilt seems like a waste of time in my baritone, so I'm probably going to a coil tap instead. So far I really don't like how spanky the bridge pickup sounds and find myself using the neck more.

    Spanky?
    Did you go with ceramic or alnico in the bridge?
    Mine doesn't seem spanky at all I don't believe (7-string ceramic set)

    I didn't like the spanky sound the bridge provided either which is why I ended flipping the pickups so the alnico was in the bridge and the ceramic in the neck. If I could, I would just do a two alnico set. The alnico bridge sounded so much better while the HF Tilt did nothing for what I was looking for.

    It's not that spanky now that I've tweaked my amp a tiny bit and rolled off my tone knob. I guess I should have tweaked my settings before running my mouth :lol:

    Last week I tried the moderns (Strandberg 7 Prog) and they are amazing. Sizzly, tight and most importantly palm-mutable unlike EMGs I have tried which I ended up never able to dial in the tone I like. I would love to try some Tosin set if possible.

    I might be the only one who prefers it this way, but I popped the jumper on to make the the HF Tilt permanent and never looked back (still have a set in my 8). That crazy high-end whatever-you-call-it just doesn’t do it for me.
