Been tossing up between a new CU24 and a 24-08. Is the 24-08 really a Cu24 + 3 new sounds? I find position 2 and 4 in the CU24 can't be replicated on the 24-08. My understanding is the 24-08's 85/15 MT tap rather than split, and the slugs are reversed in the neck pickup... all resulting in a different tone when using equivalent settings to the CU24's 2/4 positions. Less quack. Many see the lack of volume drop on the 24-08's tapped pickups as a pro. It is. But the price paid in my mind is the loss of those classic in between sounds... which if used as rhythm sounds are sometimes ok a tad quieter than the humbucking sounds... flick the switch to position 1 and it's an instant solo boost. I've read a lot of threads saying they should make the 24-08's switching standard on the CU24 moving forward, eliminating the 5-way blade... but I wonder if, as outlined above, the two guitars are variations on a theme and not directly analogous?
