I wanted to bump this thread as I received my Scott Walker Single Coil Super II - just beautiful workmanship. anyway, I just got off the phone with Scott discussing pickups, what wiring to use to avoid phase issues and rotation of the bar magnets on the pickup to address possible polarity issues.
The D Allens mentioned in this thread do sound great but at this point I am sort of leaning towards keeping it all DiMarzio - well, at least for the time being. This is a bit of a trial and error process but I wanted to throw this out after what Scott had told me about a project he was just working on with Barry Sless. Apparently Mr. Sless is using one of Scott's Single Super II's in tandem with some SDS-1's. He said something to the effect of Barry liking the SDS-1's in his neck-through, but not at all in his hollowbody (but I might have that reversed). Point being is that the way these pickups sounds can be very guitar dependent.
So, after listening to sound samples of the SDS-1 in different guitars/positions (and seeing that Moriarty is using three SDS01's in their bare-bones Wolf) - I have found that it seems the SDS-1 sounds pretty good in all three positions in a neck through - I heard one in the neck of a Strat-style Ibanez that sounded very good.
At this point I am leaning towards either an SDS-1 in the neck and bridge and the Single Super II in the middle, or the Single Super II in the neck and middle and SDS-1 in the bridge. The guitar is a MIM Strat, ash body, maple neck/fretboard, OBEL and Waldo buffer, .022uf Ceramic Caps and mil-spec pots (coming for Leo at ScarletFire Guitars - great guy, BTW). Just a basic Jerry-ish single coil Strat.
Thoughts, comments, other (better) ideas?
