Med jumbos to me say's med fret as tail as possible.When I played a RS4 I knew that Matthew knew what he was doing,he got it right and they are the only humbucker I would use myself.When I get the funds together I'd like to order a pair of his mini humbuckers in a tele.Start with a strat style hardtail bridge,then everything else straight tele.

SGs, to me, were always brighter and cut harder than LPs.  I was kinda surprised when I first tried one... I figured the hog would have kept much more low end.  Still baffles me, but that's the SG sound that well all know n love!



I really think a lot of it has to do with the thin SG body ... a lot less wood than on a Les Paul, and the longer neck hanging out there without as much contact as you have on a single cutaway LP body - I think it really makes a difference in how the string vibration gets translated through that little neck joint, into the body, and to the pickups.

Just one man's humble opinion...
