And as a note for Chris, the Soundhouse page specifically says "This is the pickup developed by Akira Takasaki of Loudness. It has good response, restrained distortion, and normal output." I'm guessing that the "restrained distortion" part means it's a mid-to-low output pickup (kinda weird how they mention both the distortion AND the output. I can't recall ever seeing a Japanese pickup description written like this).Looks like this: https://www.soundhouse.co.jp/en/products/detail/item/165135/
and if this is the guitar you bought https://www.ishibashi.co.jp/ec/product/2303155200140/
"The pickup has been replaced with one made by Killer Guitars, with LQ-500 on the front and Dyna-Bite on the rear."
After Chris posted this I literally scratched my head for an hour thinking that something about that was SO familiar. The when it was said that they were Killer Guitars brand pickups... I have 2 Killers here within arms reach. :lol: Neither have those pickups but the font should have been a dead give away for me. :facepalm:Super impressed. My google sleuthing stopped at "Guitar pickups KG" :lol:
:lol: This is probably true.I figure Loudness has maybe 3 fans in America that still listen to them regularly. Me, you and that dude Teebes that used to post here. :lol:
