I am going back and forth between the Antiquity mini hum non-firebirds and the Dimarzio dp240/241 set. The Dimarzio are ceramic and firebird style, but apparently sound somewhere in between a single coil and a mini hum.
A little background, so way back when, a guitar player in an old band of mine had a 73 Les Paul Deluxe. That was my favorite guitar to play back then. So I figured I would try to pick up a guitar with mini hums. I realize the Eclipse will not sound like the Les Paul, but I'm just looking to get somewhere in the ballpark. I play in a funk band through an 83 Acoustic G100t (kind of a Mesa Boogie Mark III sound). The amp has a lot of high end sparkle... it goes over to ice pick zone with my Strat. So I was looking for a guitar with a little more mid presence to tame those highs. The Dimarzio get really good praise and have a slight mid spike and cost almost half what the Antiquities cost.
