I've decided to build me an elektrikal CBG, and will slap in a JuJu pickup. I'm debating whether to use a humbucker or single coil. The humbucker costs more, but is what I'm used to on my SG, though I'll be playing more country-punk than deathcore. Also, the HB can be coil cut or made to be a double (non humbucking) single coil. Does anyone have any reccomendations? So far I mostly see single coils here.
I used an Artec 'hot rail' humbucker and it sounds fine - it's just series wired. If you'll be using a custom pickup, it's probably best to talk to JuJu about it. On the face of it, a humbucker could be switched for series, parallel or coil cut, giving you up to 4 different options. However, as JuJu makes them, he'd be the best person to recommend a setup for you.
JuJu said he could do me up a humbucker to my specs, which would be 4 wire+ ground, letting me wire it however I want (like my Duncans). I know it's what I want, and if I'm a cheap bastard, I'll end up getting it AFTER I buy the single coil, so I guess humbucker it is.
