anyway, after considering the way i've spoken about my opinions, sorry if i let you down by dissing the single stacks, what i really wanted to say is that you should value the true singles the next time you get the opportunity because even with the hum, theres possibilities to achieve happiness with it and single stacks are nice too, every pickup is nice if well made, and its rare to find a bad designed single stack, so i congratulate you and sincere apologies for any subliminal mistreat

As they are overwound, the pickups have quite a lot of inherent capacitance, so much so that the treble is sweet to the ear - my ear. What makes this guitar exceptional is the attention to detail in the setup, coupled with heavy gauge flat wound strings, brass saddles and a brass nut. The result is an exceptionally capable, very musical guitar. Yes, the choice of pickups is important, but its their integration with the instrument (and what is done with said instrument) that makes all the difference.

seems fun, quite hard to imagine the way it is without my mind colouring the picture, do you have any sample to show please?

This can be unwieldy. Please trim the quotes to the essential point you are responding to.
thanks dear PRR, your advise is much appreciated;
