  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Well this is my first seven string, and I chose this one because apparently these are REALLY good mod platforms. Yesterday, I looked it over before I bought it. Neck pocket was pretty well flush, fret ends weren't sharp, no dead frets. A couple finish issues but oh well. Unplugged, this thing is...

    I changed out the stock Carvin bridge pickup in my DC747 for a Dimarzio D Sonic 7. It's made a little improvement but it just doesn't have the clarity or 'push' that I'm after. I'm after something that can give me the clarity and punch that my Warmoth Strat has (it's totally different compared...

    Since my main guitar is a 27" scale 7 string with active pickups and my backup is a baritone 28.65" scale 8 string with active pickups, I'd been thinking for a while that I wanted a 25.5" scale 7 string with passive pickups, but I didn't want to dish out $2000 or $3000 since I've never intended...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Okay guys, so I've had my Korean PRS SE Custom 24 for a few months now and while it seems most don't seem to care for the 85/15 S pickups, I actually quite like them. I think they have my desired output overall, and I'm wondering, what aftermarket pickups have a similar level of output? The way...
  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    These arrived a few weeks back, but only just got the guitar back from MDV, as I didn't trust myself to route without fucking something up... I'll have some clips up over the next few days, before I do a video demo. Overall sound reminds me a LOT of an EMG 707, but with a little more crunch and...

    Got something in the works for my green Charvel, need a green bridge pickup! I almost don't care what it is, so long as it's not an Evo, a Tone Zone, or a Super Distortion :lol:

    Ughhh I am so over the buzziness and lack of clarity of my JBs. What should I switch too? Something with less output for less buzz and more clarity? Anyone try a SD 59 pickup? I regret selling my PAF

    I am only shipping to the US, no international shipping and no APO/FPO/DPO. Basically, I'm not filling out customs forms. Most of them have full leads (or nearly full), unless otherwise noted. All are used, but in good condition. Pics on request. Add $8 for Priority Mail Shipping for any...
  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So for some reason, I'm finding my results to be quite satisfactory doing this. I've been lowering pickups (Black Winters, Stock PRS pickups) lately and raising the screws and I'm getting great clarity, plenty of bite, and balancing for the treble strings is MUCH easier now. Has anyone else...

    Anyone know anything about these and/or have any experience with them?
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Does anyone know who makes the pickups in Sterling guitars? I've been pretty impressed with the stock pickups in my JP70. I haven't had the urge to rip them out yet, so I'd like to know where Sterling is getting them.

    Only ever used my pedal board for live use and I don't plan on playing out again so I'm clearing some stuff out. The only things I really want to keep are Flashback and the Synth Wah. All pedals are in Excellent shape. A little dusty but excellent shape. And I think I have the power supplies for...
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hear me out here - Obviously we know the trick of a tubescreamer in front of a high gain amp to tighten tone up (mostly from the low end roll off), but with this being such a prolific practice why not just get pickups with a tighter and less pronounced low end at the source? Wouldn’t that...
  15. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    This might be a bit of a rambling waffle but bear with me... I know a few of you have been crowing about this for years :lol: And it's not like I didn't believe you, I just thought I was more comfortable in high-output territory. :shrug: I've recently started to build up a rig again. As a...
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    After grabbing an Entwistle pickup recently and really liking it, I'm interested in checking out other budget/no-name pickups. In doing research, it seems almost everywhere I go people are split down the middle of the "They're just as good" vs "You are worthless scum for buying anything other...

  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Who uses single coils for metal or hard rock (Strats)? Recommended pickups? My main guitar is a Les Paul with Duncan Seth Lovers. It gives me what I'm looking for for rock and Metal. I also am enjoying my Stratocaster (SSS), and like the sounds that Blackmore, YJM, and Uli Roth get. I never see...

    So I routed it for one :yesway: It started out like this: I bloody love the P Bass tone, it's literally the last 50 years of rock and roll, but I also love the hyper clean, hyper modern Spector sound, for when I delve into slap and other techniques that don't just require savage hammering...
