Re: Jackson DK2M with crunch lab/liquifire
Well, I received the new pickups yesterday. I was worried that the purple would not look good on this guitar. Turns out it's not that bad. Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but it now makes this guitar my own instead of the stock look. Especially considering that a lot of people seem to have this guitar in the white finish.
As for the sound, both pickups are quite different than the Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck/ jazz combo that comes stock with this guitar. This may sound cliché or obvious but, the comparison is very much the way I would compare Dave Mustane's tone vs John Petrucci's. The JB/Jazz had a very raw sound, really hot and uncontrolled whereas the CL/LF combo has that singing quality to it. The pickups have a more compresses sound. Something that I found interesting too is that the pickups seem to attenuate the finger noise and unwanted sounds if just a little bit.
Edit: Apparently I need a post count of 10 to post pictures so... This thread needs a good bumping anyway!
