This is for my Charvel So Cal.
Purely out of boredom/curiosity. Just wanna try some stuff and that's one of those "popular" pickups I've never paid any real attention to.
Based on literally nothing, I have it in my head that this is a pretty hot/tight pickup. Am I right?
Things i like in pickups;
- Clear. Bright.
- Note separation on chords, even with distortion
- A nice chug factor (doesn't mush up when you palm mute but still has a nice chunk to it)
- Must be fairly versatile. I play a lot of mid-gain bluesy stuff and a lot of high gain pickups just sound quacky/ice-picky when the gain comes off
How many (if any) of these things will it do?
I don't play amazingly heavy stuff. I mean you know my deal, like a more riffy King's X. So I don't need surgically tight DM/thrash levels, but I do like it to be tight. I flit between drop C/C#/Eb standard using 10-46/52.
