    Obviously, there was a LOT of work behind this!  Very impressive and revealing!  I'll share!

    Are you actually changing the PU'S or are these just through SIM's? That's a lot of bloody work! 
    I listened to the Bridge Crunch and It's seems the level never changes and the tone is very subtle  in difference. 
    I would expect a bigger difference in output and tones.
     
    I just yesterday re pupped my 2 main guitars as I was not happy. 
    My G&L I put the original Single coils back after trying some Humbuckers ( they are soap bar type) It now sounds like a proper Tele again. The neck Pup is better for Blues again, smooth. The Humbuckers were from GFI and I guess I shouldn't have expected much at that price. It was too harsh and only good sound was using both together. I added the coil tap and that was even worse. 
     
    And my Strat I removed a Dimarzio Tone Zone DP189  and put the Fender Custom Shop bridge PU back. So now all the PU match again and it sounds like a good strat should. The Dimarzio was OK on it's own but you couldn't use it with the middle at all. Lost the classic Quack. So I learned my lesson with both guitars, If I want a humbucker, buy a guitar that is made for them and with matching sets.
