Has anyone tried a Cold Sweat bridge with a Riff Raff neck?

Apparently nobody.

Has anyone tried a Holydiver bridge with a Nailbomb neck?

Thanks, Stephan

I think the Cold Sweat neck is such a great pickup, probably nobody wants to use anything different with the CS bridge model?

Of course lots of people use the CS neck with other bridge pickups!

I tried a CS bridge with Riff raff neck! great combo, except the CS bridge was too modern for my tastes, swapped it with a Riff Raff bridge..

still have that CS8 bridge i'd like to sell, either that or i buy a new 8 string!
My BK's:
Black Dog8-Riff Raff8 / Black Dog7-Mule7
C-Bomb Set / Blackhawk Bridge
Holydiver Set/ BG50 Set

I fully appreciate that. Indeed it is a great neck pickup. It is probably my guitar then - the bridge pickup is very close to the bridge, making it even brighter.

Of course lots of people use the CS neck with other bridge pickups!

Sure - me, too!

Cheers Stephan

I was considering putting a Riff Raff neck in a LP "made in a garage guitar" I use as a pickup tester. It has a Duncan Black Back I moved from the bridge since it was actually an order mistake (thanks Ed Roman) and a neck pickup by measurement of the polls. A Cold Sweat lives in the bridge position. It's not a priority guitar but I really might try that.

HD and NB sounds like a sweet combo!

PK bridge + VHII neck, great combo which offers great higain rhytm, smooth lead and nice clean sounds without tapping pedals or switching channels on your amp. all you need is pickup selector, volume knob and if you like coil tap switch
