Crunchy's are aggressive with a good range of tones including a clean bottom end. They have Isotropic ferrite ceramic magnets so are similar to our beloved MMK45's.They seem to work well in the Spectrums (Maple).

The Fat's I installed in my Parker Hornet (Mahogany). They too have a lot of output but the Alnico V magnets give it a warmer, vintage sound.

(see also this thread on pickup replacement suggestions)

I know you don't own an x390, I'm just quoting this for specificity.

Were both x390 humbuckers split coil or coil tapped or was it only the bridge?

Obviously passive, I wonder if there are others that have done quite a bit of experimentation that would recommend a set of quality pups other that are closest to the original x390 pups, other than GFS products?

It's all there you just have to search on the website.

Both coil tap. The phase reversal only works with both pups on.

This is also a very old thread.
Better to start a new one than tag on to the end of this eh?

I went reading through threads to find the information and forgot about looking at the specs page.

I just wondered if others could recommend similar pickups by other brands but I think I have enough information. At the end of the day I can use any pickups I think suit.

I'd love to have a chat with an x390 owner.
