"Jim, I would most definitely have to say it is YOU who are the king! 

                           Your pickups are the best in the world...nothing else comes close!!!!!" 

                                                    ~ David Thomas McNaught, McNaught Guitars

"Jim, your pickups are the best made.  The Darkbursts are my favorite.  They just have that sound of real woody tone from the old days past.  No matter what amp I plug in, the tone is there and ready to rock.  Madness....I did the Guitar One mag press for studio update, told 'em after I installed Darkbursts we could channel the tone of legends.  Keep on winding with soul!"   ~ Jimmy Allen

The tags on the audio clips below show what pickups (CB), Position (N, M, or B), what Scumback speaker, and what amp.  
When you see NSP, MSP, or BSP, that means that pickup ( neck, middle, or bridge positions) are running series-parallel.

I really dig that.  Single-coil tone, still humbucking.  ;-)

Thanx much to engineer Michael Dresch, guitar builder, friend and customer.

I get that look and comment a lot.... LOL.
