My favorite pickups by far are the hybrids.

Thanks mmmmgtr; would you mind saying a bit more about what you’re specifically referring to when you say “the hybrids”? Do just mean Fly pickup experimentation in general or is there a particular hybrid you happen to like?

Also, I would love to play a Stealth should I ever come across one in this lifetime!!  :D

If you search on this board,  you'll find a few threads on hybrid humbucker. One of the early contributors to this board,  Alex a.k.a. 908ssp, would pair up coils from different humbuckers. Sometimes swapping magnet types as well.  The difference in coil balance led to a more "open" sound. I have a few different versions,  but I think the most common was pairing up Gen1s and Gen2s. For example, take a bridge coil from a Gen1 and pair it with a bridge coil from a Gen2. do the same with the neck pickups.  Requires some electronics/ soldering skill...

Interesting—thanks for the overview. Would love to give pickups like that a try sometime.
