I recently had the Custom Shop build me a custom pickup (after I realised that anyone - not just superstars - could design their perfect pickup from the ground up). I asked for something kinda abstract:
“…A custom shop 7-string bridge pickup for a basswood Ibanez RG (maple neck, rosewood fretboard): tight bass and slightly scooped mids but a bit of a kick in the upper mids and treble – a sort of ’dry’ sound that gets percussive when palm-muting. I tend to favor bridge humbuckers between 11k and 14k. To put it another more abstract way: a pickup whose tone feels like sanded maple, tastes like creme brûlée and looks like sunlight through a glass of beer.”
And MJ created something really awesome which I named the Magnetar. It's got an Alnico 8 magnet and the DC Resistance is 13.90k. And it sounds... like... THIS...
