I'm going to purchase a set of Iron Gear Rolling Mill humbuckers.
Turns out there's the choice of: Neck, Bridge, Bridge (Overwound).

What difference to the sound does it make if the pickup is overwound?

As far as I know, an overwound pickup is just one that is slightly hotter than the standard and has a slightly higher output.

Hotter output pickup, but usually at the cost of less high frequencies.
Can create a warmer tone.
#4
creates hotter output, tends to accentuate midrange, muddier tone when overdriven.
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

Thanks!

Hmm, I think I'd be better off with a standard one for what I want. (Classic Rock, e.g; ACDC, Aerosmith, GNR, Led Zep,)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
