The ML jr is digital, not analog
I have to agree, though I would add that the Harmony looks frickin amazing. Any chance of a full-body shot? (ooh, saucy )
I'll have to get some of my Gibson DC Jr up - most of the damage was from the previous owner but I think it looks so much better than a stock one. Also I think PRS's really benefit from a bit of bashing, they look too prissy new. Go go LP_CL
kracdown, neither of those really look to "mojo-d" at all to be honest.
I've got a Marshallhead with the Alnico II magnet in the neck of my Les Paul and a V in the bridge. The II is definitely rounder in the attack and more vintage sounding. I think a set with IIs in both positions would be great for a 137. The pickup wire and the hotter output of the Marshallheads means they're significantly warmer than the usual PAF or hot PAF set.
I can't comment on the Throbaks, since they're twice as much and I can't really spend that much on a pickup set. The only insight I've got on them is that I tend to like hotter than vintage PAF spec pickups, especially for warmth in the neck position. The Throbaks would likely be too cold for my tastes.
Black Keys don't use Twins. He uses a Hiwatt and a Marshall.
for his fuzz tones, buy every fuzz you know.
Or a fuzz face, Maestro MFZ-1 and a green muff.
That can be a good way to get a clean boost. Have all effects turned off and the output volume of the MFX turned up. That's how I drive my Abbey.
Might want to look into how Cobain coaxed his tones out of the Twin, too. Nevermind was done on a Twin.
For what it's worth, I do lot of White Stripes covers and get the tone I want with a JVM410 through the crunch channel on the medium (orange) gain stage, volume and gain on 10, master volume anywhere, and having that driven with a GNX4 running a Twin 2x12 model with big muff emulation.
You might want to try an MFX to drive the Twin. If you get a fairly serious one, you can tweak it until you get whatever tone you want through your tube amp.
There is a website called brokenbricks that tells you what equipment Jack White uses for the White Stripes. That would be a good place to start looking.
