AprilEthereal777 Posted April 7, 2008 Report Share Posted April 7, 2008 Hi Folks, I am currently drawing up plans for a 12 string solid body electric guitar I am going to build. My specs so far will be 20 frets, 25.5" scale, double cutaway solid body style, set neck, Gotoh hardtail 12 string bridge. I am going to be using a Queensland Maple top and Blackwood body with the same species in a 3 piece neck laminate......and a Gidgee fret board. These timbers balance the tone very well and to me are neither overly warm or overly bright. I need help in considering different pickup options? I was thinking perhaps just one humbucker, say a Seymour Duncan SH2 Jazz positioned evenly between the end of the FB and the bridge....then split coil the wiring for 2 options. But then again, I know NOTHING about single coil pups....every build I have done has been with twin humbuckers and every manufactured guitar I own has the same! I guess I am looking for maximum versatility between a warm sound and a bright sound. Any thoughts on pickups or anything else regarding a 12 string solid body would be greatly appreciated!
