so what defines a pickup's (humbucker's) tone? i'm not on about the technical workings but is it to do with the level of output and the frequnecy response that seperates them e.g. like a graphic equalizer?

also...di marzio and seymore duncan....anyone experienced any major differences like what music styles they are more suited to and their response and stuff?

Lots of things...the magnet type, the magnet strength, the amount of windings, the type of wire used, the overall DC resistance!

Dimarzio and Seynour Duncan both make shedloads of pickups ranging from vintage styles to modern, high output models. Dimarzio tend to have more options for the shredder, whilst Duncan seem to have a better choice for lower output and hotter vintage types but it's all just horses for courses really.

also since you're in england i strongly suggest you consider looking into bareknuckles, bulldogs, swinesheads and irongears. EDIT: and rockmonkey.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
