Apologies as I haven't read through the whole thread so I'm not sure what the issue under consideration is.
But if it's relating to the DCR reading of the Roswell pickups, I do know that I was surprised to see that the reading from the pickups on my CST-24T did no match what was on the Rosswell site for HAFs. My neck read 8.5K DCR and Bridge 16.6K DCR. I now suspect the Roswell specs are incorrect.
If I understand correctly your bridge on Cst24 is 16.6? If it were so normal, mine also has this value. What is not normal is that the same pickup (model Laf B4T CR) has color 8 (on Cst24 hb, SC Custom) and 16 (on Cst24 and sc450p)
Last night, finally I had some time to change the strings and play my epiphone prophecy, what to say is true that it costs as much as four times a hb, but I assure you that I have come to the conclusion that one of these is better than four hb. Individually a HB in relation to its cost does not sound bad, but if it is then compared to a real instrument where harmonics, sustain and differences in sound as well as tone adjustment (on hb or apert or closed) are another planet, well I think the game is not worth the candle. The only thing I regret is that I arrived after ten purchases in HB. After all, when I bought my first classic vibe, the feeling was almost the same, but obviously with single core pickups it was less obvious. Besides, if I had arrived before, now instead of so many pieces of wood, I would have some more guitars, you never stop learning. P.s. When split (single core sound is wonder full) finally a guitar where this funcion have his weight!
Of course, but I don't think that it is the strings that determine the difference found, after all I changed them because not having played it for a while they were slightly oxidized. The picks (gibson) are certainly the difference, although they are not a lover of the brand. (only for the prices their apply) The comparison unfortunately in this case was merciless, as I have already said, cs24, Cst24hb, sc450plus and cs Custom all have the same pickups and especially at the bridge they are practically inconsistent as well as almost useless tone controls. Four HB same sansation, their have only a good aspect, while hardware and construction are very cheap and I'm not considering the mystery of impedance. I had considered giving myself a HB ja60, but I definitely changed my mind the next will be squier vibe jazzmaster I would not like to have a clone again in this case of the Cst24 p90 although with a completely different aesthetic. Naturally also thomann assistance It affects these choice. For the record, between HB strat model he defends himself better, but up to comparisons with Sx or Squier std while with Vibe the difference increases considerably, but we are also in the presence of instruments (hb) that are abundantly under 200 euro and that is normal i believe.
ttmax I'll be interested in hearing your opinions of the Squier CV Jazzmaster.
I have one bought recently as well as a HB JA60.
The Squire has a great neck and good sounding pickups but the construction is not brilliant (little gap between neck and body and electrics are very poorly put together). The bridge pickup on mine has now stopped working - I need to open it up to look but I assume it's a wiring problem (broken joint or short circuit perhaps).
On the other hand the JA60 is almost perfect and € for € much better value. It is a much simpler guitar though - with no 'rhythm circuit' or tremolo system.
