They didn't realize Jerry was running the Super 2 in split coil - initially they pointed me towards the SDS1 - but after I referred them to Dozin.com we go that sorted out. Their recommendation was the Evolution ISCV2 - used by Steve Vai in the middle position of his Jem series.
"A Super 2 in split mode is very bright. The closest single-coil in terms of sound and output level is the ISCV2."

I use the tone control with distortion for that horn effect (like Jerry) and never use it partially rolled off. It's either turned all the way up or all the way down. A mini toggle switch would be more efficient.
