I might chime in that I did an extensive copper shielding job to every cavity on my warmoth tele build, and dropped a set of high gain bk tele pups in. I have about the same about of ambient noise a humbucker would have, which actually blew my expectations out of the water.
So recently I scored an unbuilt tele kit - warmoth ash body, allparts maple/rosewood neck. I had been GASing over getting a tele recently and the stars aligned for this sweet deal! Fast forward several weeks later of hardware procurement and body finishing - I had a decision to make for pickups...
Ekblad has had a few concussions already too, hasnt he?
Oilers preseason is giving hope. Yeah its preseason, but Ty "The Answer" Rattie has put up 7 points in 2 games and is likely to slot in on McDadivs right wing to start the year. Last season he played 15 or so games there and had 9 points...
The Classics were much brighter overall, even with the high cut option activated. I prefer the slightly more compressed and higher output 57/66 as well. I liked voice 2 for the bridge with its higher output, but overall with the amount of options these had I was let down the most by the coil split.
I had a classic set installed in my E-II horizon III for about 2 weeks/1 show. Took them out and went back to the 57/66. They do sound good, but the split coil option left little to be desired.
Ideally I'd want a paf voiced set like the 57/66 but with a coil split option.
