L to R:  Squier Cyclone,  Squier Vista Series,     Washburn BT-8,      Warlock 24.75",     Samick Greg Bennett,    Warlock NJ Series

Squier by Fender Cyclone guitar in dark blue with mother of pearl pick guard, stock single coil neck pickup, bridge pickup is a USA made Lace Dually Emerald/Purple Sensor controlled by a 3-way toggle coil tap switch, 2 control knobs, 3-way pickup selector switch, 6 point tremolo bridge, vintage tuners, 24.75" scale length, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 22 frets.  Styling is very similar to the Kurt Cobain designed Fender Jag-Stang. 

The Lace Dually pickups set the standard for offering 3 distinct tones from one pickup, when combined with a 3 way switch.  The single coil pickup at the neck of the Cyclone is the ultimate configuration, as the 2 single coil modes of the Dually work well with another single coil pickup, and not so well with a humbucker in the bridge, due to the dramatic resistance differences between a humbucker and most single coil pickups.

In any of the single coil modes it mixes with the neck pup far better than the stock Fender 2-wire humbucker pickup.

Squier Jagmaster model of the Japanese made Vista Series in cream with a tortoise pick guard, pups upgraded to a 4-wire Duncan Designed HB-103 pickup set (Seymour Duncan Distortion clones, same as are in the Jagmaster Standard Series), low profile slide type coil tap switch, 2 control knobs, 3-way pickup selector switch, 6 point tremolo bridge, vintage tuners, 24.0" scale length, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets.  It's styling is a cross between the Fender Jaguar and the Fender Jazzmaster.

Aside from the noiseless Lace Dually humbuckers, I've found that these HB-103 pickups have the most interesting and usable tones when switching back and forth between humbucker and single coil modes.  With the amp set up the way I like it, the single coil tones are very nice and clean, then the switch to humbucker actually adds some mids and lows, along with some overdrive growl plus a bit of a volume bump.  It's like a different guitar, and it's far more satisfying than just an increase or decrease in gain (volume), which is about all you can expect when tapping most humbuckers, even the much more expensive models.

BC Rich Warlock model electric guitar in high gloss black with chrome hardware, 24.75" scale length, a set of smoked chrome covered 4-wire Duncan Designed HB-102 humbucker pickups (clones of the favored Seymour Duncan Jazz & JB pair), low profile slide type coil tap switch mounted on the rear electronics cover, 3-way pickup selector switch, 2 control knobs, wrap around bridge, generic tuners, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with diamond inlays, 24 frets.

This interesting axe is probably a B.C. Rich Warlock Counterfit Series, there's no neck plate and only an R on the headstock.  Still, it's short scale neck feels great and is very playable.

Samick Greg Bennett Designed Fastback guitar with quilted maple top in purple with cream binding, 2 Duncan Designed HB-102 humbucker pickups (clone of Jazz-JB combination), 3 control knobs, 3-way pickup selector switch, 6 point tremolo bridge, Grover tuners, 24.75" scale length, maple neck and maple fretboard, 22 frets.
