My precious (i.e. Schecter KM-6) came with a set of Schecter Apocalypse USAIIs which surprised me with how good they sound. While I'd intended on replacing them right away, I actually liked 'em enough to keep 'em in the guitar and even did a few SAWs with 'em.

But, they just lacked that little extra oomph I got out of the Elysian Trident II in my 91 540S. So, when Father's day rolled around and my beautiful wife and awesome son asked what I wanted, Adam got some more money.

They showed up Friday and I was going to install them Saturday, but then we got hit with a hurricane and I didn't want to be mid install and have the power go out, so I waited until yesterday to drop 'em in.

For the bridge, I got another custom made Trident II and to match it I went with his economy line Hellfire Trident II in the neck.



Haven't had a ton of time to tweak a new sound profile for 'em in the Helix, but ran with the one I had for the 540S to check the bridge and it sounded great right off the bat. Then used a factory preset for the neck and it's immediately my favorite 6-string neck pup.

Now I'm ready for the next SAW... let's go!

Tridents II are the shit. Which magnet options did you go with?
Ceramic. Curious what they sound like with Alnico, but love how the ceramics respond.
