    New pups for the H2

    Hey guys,
    I've got a 20th H2 with the original Archtop pickups. Has anyone put any of the 53/10, 59/09, or 57/08 series in their hollowbodies? Just curious (and always thinking).
    Thanks!

    A lot of folks have put 57/08s in their HBs with exceptional results.

    I'm considering sending mine in for a pup swap...

    I have a wonderful DGT and was wondering if the new series would have that sweet top end that I associate with my DGTs. The stock Archtops sound very modern; great, but not as complex in the midrange.

    I am curious about this as well. What about some Seth Lovers?

    I have a set of RPs in a HB2 and they sound great once you get the height right ;-)
