  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've had both these pickups about, oh I dunno, 20 times? At least. But because I generally pay such little attention to neck pickup tone (I tend to go by feel and/or output) I've never actually compared the two side by side, like I have done with countless bridge pickups. From memory, here's...
  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm getting a bit bored of the stock BB Pro's in my V, so i'm guessing it's time for a new set of pup's. Style of playing will be sludge/doom ala Crowbar, Down and perhaps a bit of old school swedish death. I've considered a set of 81/85's, but I don't like the idea of messing too much with the...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So... I now have the PRS SE Custom 24 I was looking for - see recent NGD. I'm considering pickups. Chances are, I'll play it for a while with the stock stuff first. I want to stay with zebra. I like the black and creme thing. If I was to go with something different, it would be nickel or...

    Hey all, In the market for some new pups. I currently use EMG's so I want something passive and much more organic with character and voice. EMG's are somewhat sterile processed sounding. I have a Mahogany guitar with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. I have an ENGL Fireball 100. I play...

    Here we go another "what pickup should I get thread?". Well I picked up an RG8 a little while back, figured I'd mess with it a bit and if I liked it I'd throw some better hardware and pups in it. I started writing some new material with it and want to upgrade before recording anything but I...

    Looks like they've updated their site to show all the 7- and 8-string offerings together; the number of models available has certainly expanded since I last checked. 7/8 String - Seymour Duncan All are available in these formats: And the MerEngland Nazgul demo for fun, in case you missed it.

    Hey guys, So I am just sick of the Duncans not fitting in my 1527, and I really don't want to modify the pickups or my guitars. For trade I have the following: - Duncan Distortion 7 - Duncan Design JB Wolfetone Rewind Keep in mind that Duncan vs. Duncan Design does not matter for the rewind...

  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    OK after 23plus years its time for a new set of Pickups in the 750 XL. The originals are just too mellow now so I will take them out and set them aside in favor of a new Dimarzio set. I have been a long time Duncan guy but for a bunch of reasons, mainly curiosity, and also the fact that its kind...

    I have two sets of Ibanez stock pups, INF1, 2, and S, and a IBZ/Dimarzio H/S/H set, from my S670, and S2170, respectively. (I listed these primarily for the guys who are building/modding pickups.) The better sounding of the two is definitely the IBZ set, insanely nice stocks. Also have a Damn...

    So, I just ordered myself a HB tele bridge, and I plan on replacing the tele neck with a straty-type thing. Looking for the perfect date; something cheap and hot :wub:

    They're direct mount, you guys might recognize them from this thread http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-instrument-discussion/39250-fdogd-loook-look.html Yup, that's the set. I'm not sure which models they are, but I need cash, and fast. Their price says that the prices start at $169...

    Anything hot and focused with good definition, complimenting mahogany. Need both bridge and neck but bridge is more important for now. International is fine, so long as shipping isn't insane. Looking for things like D-Sonics, Blazes, D-Activators, Invaders, Super Distortions etc, but offer up...

    Was talking about the new Jackson X series models with some mates, and one of them told me that active pickups on basswood sound just like shit. I'm not really an expert about woods. Is that true?
  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey, first post on here, I usually ask questions on SS.org but thats "unavailable " to me right now. Anyways. I'm reassembling my guitar and I got new pick ups, EMG 707 and 81-7, I'm looking for a wire diagram for this this, I don't know if its the same as with passive pups or not, and I plan on...

  20. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Just lookin for recommendations on bass pickups. None of the manufactures seem to have good audio files so I was hoping someone could post recordings or videos or anything. I have a PJ setup (the stock setup in the LTD B-55) and want something a little crisper. I was hoping for some seymore...
