No, not these:
I'm having a small GAS attack, but I need some insight.
I have never played 408s in either a Siggy, a 408 or a PG, but I need to give them a try. I'm currently working on getting some in-hand with these things, but I need some insight. Many of you have played the 408s in both their original and narrow bridge versions and I need to know what to expect and what to look for when I play them.
I rarely use split tones - I just prefer the fuller sound of humbuckers full on. I like thick, full tones for both clean and dirty. I'm not a fan of piercing, shrieking tones. But having the option to split is good, because you never know where your might branch out next.
I'd appreciate is you guys could give me a rough comparison or contrast as to how the neck 408 sounds compared to conventional humbuckers of your choice. Is it tinnier? Just as full? More or less low, mids or highs? Muddier or more articulated?
I'm debating about 408s or not. And it's an important question because of the non-interchangeability of the shapes of the pups.
Can you help me with this dilemma?
