I wouldm imagine the result would be fairly close to the regular Super Distortion, isnt it alnico? I am yet to try one of thos in the middle slot but I foresee liking it alot per Garcia's experience with them in the 70's.
I've found that the buffer equalizes the pickup output volumes. I use regular PAFs in the bridge and neck, but the super 2 is in the middle. When I bypass the buffer the bridge volume drops and the super 2 is louder than the neck. The buffer, when online makes the volumes all equal.
I dislike ceramic magnet pickups as well; And i feel it's better to re-purpose the super 2s with different magnets then to just have them sitting in a drawer; Not to mention, spending 80 bucks a pop on new pickups.
I'll try the A2 in a neck position first, then try A5 in the bridge position.
