Re: The Soldering Iron Is Still Warm
i think its because they have a very high output (ie are very sensitive).
They put the amp into distortion mode quicker than any other PUP.
Les Paul SHOULD be Ok for feedback if shielded properly, but hollowbody guitars are notorious. I think my Ibanez has a big centre block and the shielding is good, hence the nice clean sound and abscence of feed back.
It almost sounds distorted at high volume with no effects. If you click on a tubescreamer its like Richie Blackmore/Brian Moore/Brian May/Jeff Beckesq.
