  • What are your Favorite Single Coil pickups (size).

    I'm probably get the New Jackson SL4X and replace pickups. I like EMG's But what else is out there that are noiseless but good for all styles of music?

    My personal favorites are Kinman - I have them in a strat and a tele.

    I also like Seymour Duncan Vintage Stacks for a traditional Fender sound.
    "In many ways, most people’s happiness, peace and love are mortgaged to the external situation. So, if the stock market goes up you are happy, if the stock market goes down you are unhappy. But the quality of life is not about what is around you. Our ability to live joyfully here does not depend on the size of the house we live in or the car that we drive. These things make your life comfortable and convenient but the essential quality of your life is how you are within yourself right now."

        The Duncan rails are in it and aren't bad so I'll live with it . I was looking in my Junk box and found 2 PJ Marx single coils and 2 unused Humbuckers I forgot I had. Maybe I 'll try the singles?

          I have the Fender SCN (samarium cobalt noiseless) pickups in my Tele, and I like them a lot.

            That reminds me. My SCNs are still in the box on the shelf.

              How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲
