Awesome idea, MDV. This thread is going to kick so much ass once it's as in-depth and extensive as the *EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM* thread in Players. Once I have my C-Pig set I'll let you guys know what I think.

Everyone else.... START ESTIMATING!

PK bridge: B6 M8 T6
A-Pig bridge: B9 M8 T7
A-Pig neck: B7 M8 T6

Maybe it's just from playing with the switch on the TTM but I'm feeling recently the distinction between low and high mids is a crucial one, probably too late to include it here though.

I agree, on the low mids and high mids, in general and take it into account in my own considerations very much

But here, to help the study be more accurate and to make the final results less complex and more accessible I thought BMT was best, tim was happy enough with that and here we are!

Thanks for the data.

Gonna have to stop piling in every post for that if this is gonna go on for, well, for as long as it needs to - thanks for all data and future data, data givers! Rest assured your estimates have been, and will be, logged and everyones estimates are all equally valuable to the results, and me *sheds a tear*.

MOAR!

Holy snap Nolly, you must have a book on BKPs! So (off topic), based on what you said in the J-Custom/RGD thread, you think the PK is a good bridge unit for my all mahogany 7? CS for the neck?

But yeah. The br00talz should be here in about a week. And just because Nolly estimated like a millions billions pickups doesn't mean people should stop.

OH, and how about separate estimates for 7 and 8 string models?

Xperception, NO! Stopit! Your enthusiasm is certainly appreciated, but I'm not complicating it any futher. Besides theres precisely no chance whatsoever that I would get enough data for 7 and 8 pickups within 5 years, and they sound the same anyway.

Miracle Man: B - 7, M - 7, H - 8 Hot, strong (but tight) bass, punchy growly, grinding mids, good presence, but not harsh in my experience across 2 guitars with this pickup

Black Dog: B - 6 M - 4, H - 4 Growly pickup capable of gorgeous grind.

Oh Roo, those numbers are music to my ears for my alder maple/maple Strat's bridge, when I need to calm the guitar down for a pop/rock gig.  Wow, the mids not banging away and the top so nice. . . I hope it's close to that for me when I get to the Black Dog on my list.

While I'm posting, this thread has already helped me alot, my opinion is to not go into a whole lot of detail about your axe etc., just how do you feel the numbers fall into place for that particular pickup in its respective position.  Keep them coming guys, I have two more on the way and will post up the numbers.

Ps- Respectfully stated, I don't feel this thread should be one for off topic.

Small note to the OP added and I'm going to sit back and collect the data, without replying to every single contribution, so please chaps, carry on, I am watching and adding your estimates, all contributions are precisely, mathe$%&#ingmatically exactly equally valuable, so get them in.
