    So you have found your Holy Grail of pickups?  How does the staple sound in the bridge.  Gibson only had that on the big archtop jazz guitars.


    It certainly works for me.  I was worried I would be disappointed after waiting so long for these. I plan on doing some comparisons once I have the burst wired up.... but I will need to consider some of the variables.   The old staple has the magnets set quite a bit higher, from the coil for one.   None of the guitars are set-up with similar pickup heights yet etc...   The neck pickup is definitely in the same ball park, but has a bit more clarity than the vintage example.

    From my limited demo of a neck staple I would describe them as being to a P90 what a WRHB is to a PAF. So clarity and definition but still fatness. I would assume the bridge would be similar but more "bridge-pickupy"?

    Its probably not far off.   The coils are likely closer in size on a staple and P-90 than a WRHB and normal HB, but the main difference on both styles is the additional of magnets directly in the coil.

    I will do more comparisons further down the line.

    you could always just get a neck unit for the classic combination, but the bridge really is worth a look too
