    .


    Voted for single near bridge. Poll doesn’t allow me to specify “twins jammed together and tight against the bridge” ... which is obviously the ONLY reasonable FL mag PU configuration.

    OTOH I’m not really that picky about the mag PU configuration cuz I just turn it way down and open up the piezos.

    Just not at all right for an FL oriented poll to include “don’t give ashit about FL”, but then neglect to include “don’t give ashit about mag PUs”. It’s just Not Right.

    So this would be the Fortress Masterman PU configuration but a little more near to the bridge :)
    Sure that is true I forgot the piezos...
