Re: Pickup opinion for 2002 JEM 7VWH
get a decent rack eq, too. a nice 31 band can be had for less than $100 and that WILL give you the tone you want. you can be anally retentive on how you set your eq curve and scoop out even more mids, add up to 12-15 db of low end and highs to make your rig scream. it in fact becomes an active eq rig and will give you way more scuplting possibilities than what the bbe will give you. personally, i hate bbe's on guitar, but love them on bass and pa. i own 4 of them myself. 3 in my pa rig and one on my bass rig, imo, they don't let the highs and high mids breathe well, but that may be what your looking for. i do know for a fact that the eq will focus your sound and make it massive at the same time. i used to use a dual 15 band eq for my old 5150 rig. one channel in the preamp section(does very little) and in the loop(this is where the magic happens).
