    What's up guys? So I just have a question about the pickup height. I just put a Duncan Distortion TB6 into my RG1570L and it looks a lot higher than the V8 that was in there. I know it's a bigger pickup and I removed the weatherstripping that was in there but it still looks pretty high to me. I...

    Hey guys :) I recorded these back in May with the mic from a Speedlink Medusa 5.1 headset, look up the specs if you like but it's certainly not the most high fidelity mic out there. I don't remember mic placement too well. This is just a smattering of high-gain thrash metal riffs, guess the...

    Hi all, I was just wondering how the Duncan Distortion compares to a Dimarzio distortion. Are they approximately the same? If not, which Duncan pickup would compare to a Dimarzio Distortion? And what about a Paf Pro at the neck? Comparable to a Jazz or a 59? Thanks! Andy

    Hi there! I´m currently fixing up my Jackson DK2 and want to get the best, cleanest sound possible from it. I have the stock pots in it right now but I have heard that the pots can make a big difference in tone so I wonder if I should change those out. I also want the bridge humbucker to coil...

    I'm upgrading my old Jackson DK2 big time making all hardware black (from chrome), which also includes changing out the licensed floyd to an original one. I will also change out the very very noizy duncan designed single coils for more decent ones (any suggestions here?). I have a good sounding...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    So i got the pickups and installed them on my rg550. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The breed neck is probably the best neck pickup ever made. Every note can be heard clearly, and it has such a sweet tone. Not too dark and very smooth. The evo2 isnt a good match for a breed neck, i have to say. When i...

    Guitar Haven is going out of business. They used to be up in Antioch, but moved to Murfreesboro a few years back. The owners have decided to retire so they are blowing out their whole inventory. This was THE place to buy pickups as they usually carried 2-3 of everything. Not to mention they...
