I like the Dimarzio air norton pickup in the neck position. However it's really important to me to have a sustainer pickup in this guitar. As you may or may not know a sustainer must be placed in the neck position.
This leaves a couple of options.
1. Could a sustainer be put in a middle position perhaps?
2. My preferred plan, is to purchase an air norton single coil version and pack both it and the sustainer into the neck slot.
So if I do this, does anybody have any wiring diagrams that would let me get both the air norton and the bridge, the sustainer and the air norton, just the air norton, just the bridge, and all three?
If you dig through that thread newey linked, you'll probably come to it, but I'll give you the quick version here.
The sustainer puts out a whole pile of electromagnetic radiation. That's kind of how it does it's thing. The problem is, this tends to get induced fairly easily into any large coils of wire that happen to be near it. You know, like other pickups. There has been some extensive research over at projectguitar, but I'm not sure they've come to an acceptable solution for the middle mounted sustain driver.
And if the middle position is too close to the other two, imagine having it in the same hole! There's no reason you couldn't put the air norton and the sustainer in an HB sized hole at the neck, but you wouldn't want to listen to that pickup while the sustainer is running.
