    I am hoping to get a SC594 soon, so I can compare at some stage.

    This reminds me. I traded for a pair of 53/10s recently. I really should put them in a guitar..

    53/10s are supposed to sound like single coils right? Humbuckers that sound like single coils?

    There was some marketing blurb when they first came out that mentioned a reference to being sweet like single coils from the early 50s, but that's about it. Whether they were actually meant to sound like single coils is another matter - I would strongly suspect that they were not and it was just a bit of marketing spin. There is nothing in their construction to lend to a more single coil sound, unlike say a narrowfield or TCI etc. They are just normal lowish output humbuckers in book.

    Congrats on the guitar. Love the 53/10s and have them in a couple of guitars. That run has a lot of awesome tops and yours of course is one of those.

    How about a pair of 53/10’s (and a Fralin Vintage Hot) in a somewhat modified Swamp Ash Special... :cool:

    Oh, I like that. Did you add the mini toggles? What do you have them do?
    The bridge is too shiny though. Scuff it up so it looks like a 20 year old guitar.

    The PTC did it. The mini toggles split the 53/10’s. The push/pull pot engages the Fralin. The new bridge will get there, I’m sure!

    A think the PAF comparison is more apt, btw some beautiful guitars have cropped up in this thread.
