blackouts

  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Have someone wanting to trade me a C1 for my 94 RG470. Seems like a good trade, but I don't know much about Schecters other than I always want to like them then play one and get an overwhelming "meh" feeling. Anyone have some knowledge to pass on?

    I'm building a guitar kit (ML with a Floyd rose).I have blackouts ahb-2 bridge and the ahb-1 neck in a les paul and love them. What I'm thinking about doing with the ML is a ahb-2 in the bridge and a ahb-1 bridge in the neck position so I can really destroy what is left of my hearing,even tho...

    Treble side leg of the bridge pickup is snapped off, can probably be reattached with glue if you are handy, never got around to installing them. Was like that when they arrived, bought them off someone here, forget who. Not even sure if they were sold like that, or it happened in shipping. :lol...

    Is there a passive equivalent to the Seymour Duncan Blackouts? I have them in my main guitar which is an Ibanez S520ex . I just bought an Ibanez S470 with the intention of it becoming my back up guitar. I would like it to sound the same but go with a passive setup rather than active. Thoughts?

    I've picked up that Schecter V-7 SLS guitar and the blackouts just sound awful. I like the Invader in my Ninja but I'm not sure if I want it in this one. The Nazgul piqued my interest as well since it comes in the soapbar size. Anyway give me suggestions. I'm open to about anything passive...

    OK folks, after several questions received, here's an in-depth review of the great B.C. Rich Jr. V 7 guitar upgraded with Seymour Duncan Blackouts. It's not a high end piece of equipment, but definitely the best "bang for the buck". I tried to cover as many details as possible and straight to...

    First off, I'm feeling lazy. I don't want to make a new pickguard to cover the space left by passives in the RG8 plus, for some unknown reason I've been morbidly curious about active pickups again lately. :D So all that aside, anybody give the EMG 808X pups a shot? What are they like compared to...

    Sorry, not a spectacular test with a play-along video and full track. Just 2 quick riffs from 2 different songs, both using the Loomis. But with supplying DI's people can really hear for themselves with their own amps/sims/whatever. In each folder there are 2 DI's (one left one right for each...

    When I first loaded them into the Loomis, it was instant joy. But now, after a few weeks of playing, hearing them through my rigs, recording with them extensively, and analysing/comparing to other recordings, I just plain don't like them. Here's my analysis: When I first put them in my guitar...

    I hated them the first time. I just tried these in a jap esp horizon 7 string, first impression is holy fuck these sound amazing - and they kind of do, huge sounding very big and wide, retarded output - lowered them a bit - much better. but heres the kicker, they just don't sit right in a...

    So i used to have a set of these in a bernie rico vixen, they proved to be rather shite in that guitar which i dubbed the woof-caster from then on, however I'd be fibbing if i said that particular instrument ever sounded "spectacular".... So currently I have a guitar that is crazy bright and...

    Looking for a set of SD Blackouts. Don't really care about condition provided they work as they'll be getting sprayed. If you are interested I can offer a matched pair of Bareknuckles; a Painkiller and Cold Sweat. These are both seven string pickups we're talking about here, hit me up.
