  1. Thanks ! I'll do some comparisons with my twin and ocd pedal and my bfg with the Burstbucker 3 in the bridge,...reason I'm wondering about all this.....I picked up a second BFG to play around with, I'm going to put a Seymour Duncan Hot P90 -3 , 10k, in the neck and I want to put a high gain pup in the bridge, either the Gibson 500T, Dirty Fingers, or Seymour SH-6 Distortion Pup, all three are around 16k , I don't play metal , but we do play some garage / heavy blues, and I'd like to have something that can sound sweet clean, then smoke !!
  2. Hi, '71 Twin Reverb, amp is fine, doesn't seem to matter if the pup is parallel to strings or not, measured the resistance again, 16k, going to play with height tonight, maybe need to lower it, I'm thinking that the "power" doesn't kick in while playing clean, only when using a distortion pedal ?
  3. I added a set of dirty fingers in my SG bridge position....I wired it correctly, the green and white wire are soldered together and taped off..... It does not seem as near as hot as they are said to be. I have Burstbucker 3's in a Les Paul BFG, and they sound the same level. I checked the resistance of the coils, in the standard humbucking config they are in series and read about 16 K ohms, the other pickup in my SG Neck, not sure what it is reads about 8k ohms, and the neck pickup sounds just a s loud. I don't think that its out of phase, because there is bass and treble, not tinny..... I the only think i've noticed that they are not parallel to the string angle , the strings go right over top of the top pickup of the humbucker and the strings are alot higher on top of the second humbucker because of the angle of the strings. I moved the pup paralel to the string angle using my hand and playing a few notes and the volume / tone stayed the same... do i have them too high, should i adjust the pole pieces hirer lower, stick some foam under the pup to lift the bottom up to meet the strings ? Do you only notice the hot when going through a pedal ? It sounds ok, but not the power that i expected Stumped....i thoink that they should be alot hotter.....
  4. Hey !! thinking on doing the same, how did you make out, i put a dirty finger in my SG ridge and don't find it any hotter than the BB3 in the bfg
