    Hi Bill,

    I just found your article in my search for info on replacing my pickups in my late 80’s Ibanez 540S. I’ve always missed a warm tone and decent sustain, but thought I could get this back your better pickups. Your article is *exactly* what I was looking for, especially since I’m looking for the same kind of tonal versatility as you. I have a few questions:
    1. If I’m not mistaking, you’ve now been playing a few years with this setup. What do you think of it now and what would you have done differently now that you’ve used it for some time? Is there any pickup that -in hindsight- isn’t completely what you had hoped for?
    2. Could you share a picture or two of the end result?
    3. Did you do any diagram of the wiring and if so, could you share that?

    Thanks so much for this very informative two part article!
