I’d like not to have to make additional corrective adjustments while playing. In fact, I use series and parallel resistors to ensure I can make use of  the entire sweep of a control when necessary.

I find that shunting the dummy coil in order to coax additional brightness out of an Area pickup sounds better than unloading it. If I want extra brightness on tap I’ll dial it at the amp rather than have the pickup sound uneven.

Yep - but when you get to the point where it's too sharp, simply go one step back.

And I agree it is guitar dependent.

It largely depends on the guitar and application but raising the Q by reducing the load can sound sharp. You might want to try this instead…

That may well be correct - the guitar it is in is not specifically bright. Not dark either, though.

Love the FRED in the bridge with a 250k volume pot - clear but not sharp highs, full mids, nice harmonics, a lot of fun to play.

I like it on warmer guitars. But on brighter guitars, i don't prefer.

I guess I mentioned before but I strongly prefer a 250k volume pot or lower for 67, 58 and 61 (and Virtual Vintage 54 Pro), regardless of the position. Same goes for any of the higher output models (Injectors, Virtual Vintage Heavy Blues 2 and Virtual Solo) in the bridge position. For the Injector neck in the neck position, I prefer a 500k volume pot.

What I did not mention previously is that all of the Area models are sensitive to the tone control loading. If you have a 250k tone pot and want more brightness, try a 500k. Want still more? Try a 1meg or a no-load pot.

Cheers Stephan
