It's my buddy Chris playing, not me ;-) We installed the FP in order to catch get more highs, which fits better to the instrument as he supposed. The former Humbucker in change sounded mellower but deeper. Meanwhile he wants to have additional piezo transducers to pimp the signal..

Actually I think both sound great and I really like your playing too. The Flatpup sounds clearer. Is that the pickup or the difference in position (nearer the bridge)? Either way a really nice enhancement to any instrument.

Flatpup sounds pretty good, but would sound even better on a CBG! (-;

Flatpup sounds pretty damn great to me!  Your design is so cool and so flat!
