Re: Seymour Duncan Invader 7.
surprised by the duncan 59, I have the 6 string version in the neck of an ESP ltd basswood guitar and I never thought of it as a metal pickup.
I like it clean with delay , chorous and / or reverb, a smooth sweet relaxing sound.
but with distortion its not at all clear, fast power chords lose definition and very little bite.
I like it, I use a high gain pickup in the bridge for when I want to bang the guitar then switch to the 59 in the neck for more bluesy sweet stuff, but nowadays I never use the 59 with distortion.
I sort of gave up on it for metal, for about a year the guitar has been in Keef open G 5 string tuning and I just play it when I feel like using 1 finger.
Nice pickup, but no bite when chugging.
