A lot of BKP calibrated sets have a contrasting neck pickup.  For example, in the Emerald set the neck is dark and warm while the bridge is bright and cutting.

Also the EQ charts on the BKP site are for the bridge pickup only, they've never provided them for neck pickups.

Ok, so now it is either calibrated set of HD or HD bridge + HSP90..which one could be a good match output/sound wise to HD ?

The neck cold sweat works really well with the bridge holy diver

That Phil X demo sounds more like a riff raff job, though

Hey Eric,

what would be the benefit using CS neck against HD ?

the CS has similar specs, but it's a little hotter
you could email bkp for more details on that
