I make art, music and am thoroughly addicted to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the very best possible way.

I recently had an idea for a unique hum-bucker. I’ve been eyeing PRS’ new #Silversky (yes, the John Mayer Guitar) and just couldn’t justify a single coil in the bridge. Instead of a modifying it and installing a traditional humbucker in the bridge and splitting the coils for that 2nd position, I thought, how come no one makes a humbucker NEXT to a single coil? Seymour Duncan makes an awful sounding hybrid pickup called a P-rail. I figured, instead of a P-90 next to a yucky sounding blade pickup, why not squeeze a real humbucker in there, and pack in a single coil next to it - on the Center slug side. (PRS packed in a single into a 1 CM space in the narrowfield pickups that come in my #PRSStudio Guitar) You’d have a REAL Strat sound in that No. 2 position in parallel with the Center coil, but you’d also have a true humbucker. The only thing you’d compromise is the slug side of the HB-it’d be a bit closer to the screw side, but the screw side would be normal distance from the bridge. Hmmmmm... Hey #sentellpickups wanna build it? 😳 suggestions? Recommendations? Thoughts? Techy-I know...but these are the thoughts that fill my brain at night.

My next project for @sentellpickups ...adjustable pole pieces on the wound strings, single coil style slugs on the thinner ones. Wound like a G&L Z-coil or a Fender P-Bass. It’s a “hum-canceling single coil sounding narrowfield...HAHAHAH! Should end up sounding like a big fat P-90 with super tight, percussive bottom end, chimey single coil top end and no hum. Can’t wait to get this going!!! It’ll be in the neck position. #PRSStudio #Narrowfield #NarrowfieldReplacement #sentellpickups
