I am getting my guitar rewired with EMG pickups. I am debating on whether or not to put a 60 or an 89 in the neck position. I love having the single coil sound, but does the 89 actually sound good tapped? I messed with one in the store and it sounded alright. The 60 is already in two of my other guitars, so I am used to the tone, but I dont know if the 89 is what I am looking for. Basically, I want a good single coil clean tone, but one that can also do a good clean on a humbucker setting, as well as a decent solo tone. Any suggestions?
If you've got two 60s already, I'd get the 89 just for variation. It sounds decent tapped.
