I am thinking of putting together a single-pickup Cabronita style build. The neck will be a one-piece Warmoth roasted maple with stainless frets, with their 10-16" compound radius. The body will be homemade from old pine.
I think I want a slightly overwound pickup. I don't play completely clean at all... mostly light - med crunch. Rhythm in a rock band with another guitarist. Always rehearsals or live, hence slightly hotter than the typical 5K bridge, to give more mids. I still want the dynamics and typical twang. Definition in the lower strings - not muddy.
Fender 52-53mm spacing with a very flat radius (18" ish) by the time it gets to the bridge.
Has anyone had experience with Creamery Black Cats, MojoTrons or CowTRons?
Is there much tonal difference between TV Jones-sized pickups and full humbucker versions?
The Supertron blade style ones are supposed to be more balanced and slightly warmer. Are there any downsides? I would need to check with the builders whether the blades have a radius. They seem more popular in the neck position, not sure why....
Is there anything I am overlooking? Any advice/recommendations welcome!
