I would love to get a stomping drummer behind that chunky riff.

I meant 12-58's by the way, I don't like how you can't edit old posts!

Well I fired it up and tried mic'ing an amp instead this time, it ended up more distorted and not as clear/bright as i'd hoped but anyway you'll get the idea with the soundfile. Excuse the rock-ish distortion but it is a new toy and I am a boy after all!

I've got 12-18's on it, in Open E (D was too slack) and it screams really well when overdriven. I'm having a bucketload of fun on it and it passed its first live gig test recently too.

The pickup shown on the link below below it, does anyone know what type of Schaller this is? (ie: "Golden 50" etc..)
I do know it's a Schaller humbucker and usually came with a gold cover-plate which i've misplaced at the moment but will probably not actually end up using anyway.
(Does it make a difference to the sound? All I can think of is it might dull it in some way if anything due to it diminishing the sensitivity by being an obstruction of sorts between pole pieces and strings.)

By the way for placing it, I ended up using the ratio method mentioned earlier, measured from my own favorite guitar.

For a photo of the pickup, cut'n'paste this into your address bar:

Setting the pickup just under a harmonic place would be useful in order to cut that harmonic from the output. But that would work only, and only, for the string played open. The position of all harmonics will change as you move the bar.

So, I wouldn't care that much about a exact position. Just find the spot you like more, treble near the bridge or softer further away.
