I'm interested to hear what you all think your favorite pickup selection is...

Who needs a signature?

For me it's real close, but I have to disagree with you there, the neck pickup has me in love. The nice warm, well rounded tone is great.

My Favorites in order:

1. Bridge Pickup (Humbucking)
2. Neck Pickup
3. Bridge Pickup (Coil Tapped)
4. Both Pickups Tapped or Bucking

I really enjoy all 5 possible settings, but the Bridge humbucker is my favorite. I just like the thicker, warmer tone.

But they are all very good. :D

After a few months of just having a grand old time with these guitars, ( I have two of them one stock and one with a 500k tone pot w/ .022 cap) the humbucker in the stock twin really floats my boat. That said, there is not a bad sound between them. Furthermore if I only had one, I would not add the tone pot.
