I own a 1985 Kramer Striker 400ST that I LOVE. The touch is perfect, the neck is super straight. I just love this axe.
I play mostly Black Metal, Rock/Old school influenced metal. My current chain is Pedal Projects Klon -> Vintage RAT -> JCM 800 2204
I use to play using the stock pickups. Don't ask me what they are, just don't know. I recently decided to change the bridge pickup for a Seymour Duncan JB SH-4, and I love the way the mids are rising up, and the gain level is much more suitable than my stock pickup to be able to tweak my pedals to feed my JCM 800.
I am right now very close to what I am looking for, dirty yet detailed sound.
All this introduction to say that however, I think its not 100% the right pickup for me. I am looking for a just a bit more gain, but keeping the sonic characteristics of the SH-4. Some sort of real close cousin of it.
Does anybody have a good idea which pickup I should consider? I am allergic to active pickups by the way Hehe
