Changed asking price for "Make A Offer".

Thanks.

I have a Pro Track &  Chopper Pickup for sale in excellent condition. I installed them, but didn't "use" them, in a guitar that never gets played, I play bass.

 I purchased them new, and have the plastic boxes, and literature, that they came in. They're both black.

(Though they're humbucking, they are single coil size pickups, in case you didn't know.)

MAKE AN OFFER!  ;D

The Pickup Place / Which PU for Neck on.............
« on: July 24, 2016, 08:26:11 pm »
Which Strat style pu (hum-cancelling w/ pole pieces) would give me the warmest, fattest sound on my '66 Duo-sonic in the neck position?

Many Thanks.

You guys are killing me with this stuff. It's great.

Where did you learn this?

I am a serious ABB fan from way back, and yes the Fillmore album is incredible.

Thanks guys.

That brings me to point out, the difference in guitar tones between Duane and Dickey on the

 Fillmore album, and I think that night they were both playing Les Pauls.

 Kinda interesting huh?

Thanks again.

eggman,

Thanks for that reply.

You're one of the "reviewers" I took notice of on your comments about the Air.

I've always liked using the passive tone controls, both on bass & guitar. The Air Classic sounds like it could be interesting between using a tone (and volume) knob and varying ones touch to get different sounds out of the one pickup.

LPBII's response, in post 2, is intriguing.

For fun, let me ask, which pickup (any of them) would you think of for playing Allman Brothers?

Bridge has a Pro Track.

Thanks LBII. Great reply.

 With that said, the Air Classic sounds like a very cool and unique pu. I have read lots of very complimentary comments and reviews on the Air Classic.

Thanks again.

The Pickup Place / classic or 36th Aniv. for neck in 24 in. scale?
« on: June 29, 2014, 10:27:07 pm »
The body of my 1966 Fender Duo-Sonic is already routed for it. I had a humbucker in it when I was a kid, that was 100 years ago ;D. The single space blade pu sounds good but I know I'll like a real full sized humbucker better.

I'm considering the Air Classic and the 36th Anniversary. I've read that a 24 in. scale isn't as twangy and bright sounding as 25.5 in.

I want a warm, full sound, of course with some clarity.

Give me your 2 cents worth.

Oh, and I'm not using the original pickguard.

 Many Thanks.

Thanks Luijo.

Considering putting a Chopper in the neck on my old Fender Duo-Sonic (24" scale), instead of the Pro Track.

How much (if at all) can you make a Chopper sound like a Pro Track by cutting highs with the guitars tone knob?

Some people make the Chopper seem like it's more versatile than the Pro Track.

I want a full, warm sound like a full sized humbucker from the neck position.

I would think you could make the Chopper sound more like the Pro Track than vice versa.
As always I could be wrong.  ;D

(I always found great use from a tone control on bass guitar.)

What do ya think?

Thanks

What would be the next step away from the dark and boomy Pro Track?  Thanks.

There are some interesting options. Thanks for the input. It would be fun to try them all!

On my bass, that's what I did (well, didn't try everything available, but several). An educational experience. I know you really just have to get whatever pu and test it. But it's still fun to get feedback from folks.

Someone had suggested that I go with 2 Pro Tracks. Any thoughts?

Again, Thanks.

(For a 24" scale hardtail, 2 single slots, 3 way toggle.) Modified '66 Duo-Sonic II.
