    How powerfull is the Seymour Duncan JB in comparison to a Dimarzio Model Humbucker? it were the first humbucker i ever tried in a HSS strat and ever since i have tried Many Dimarzio Models including the Mo'joe, and most recently the D-sonic, the D-sonic is Output mV: 390 according to Dimarzio's...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I showed my roomie the D sonic and he says its basically that. Having never heard a "lipstick" pickup, I would never know. Any thoughts on it. Also, single coil humbuckers are garbage (according to him). Any comments would be lovely for my next little tech debate with him :D. I've never heard a...

  5. Pickups & wiring
    Well i've recently acquired this alder H-H soloist that came stock with EMG 81 and 85 and they're really starting to get on my nerves. Always that little gain boost, the compression and subtle lack of note deffinition is so annoying. And cleans are just a joke on these things. So I guess what im...

  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hello, just got me a universe 777 and love the Blaze pickups on it. I have an RG 1570 with an Evo in the bridge and decided to switch that out to a Steve's Special. I've been hearing that the Steve's Special is the closest to the Blaze. Would it sound almost the same if I put the Steve's Special...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm thinking about having a custom guitar built. I want a mahogany body for that nice deep tone. I also want active pickups. I've chosen an HSH configuration of either EMG 81bridge/85neck/SAmiddle and Seymour duncan blackouts. Which would you guys recommend? What are the advantages of either?

    Hi all, I've been away from this site to avoid GAS for sometime now, but I find myself climbing the wall with GAS again and this is where it leads me. :) Lately I've been checking out the Caparison guitars and I'm afraid I'm hellbent on getting one. I'm looking into the Dellinger and TAT...

    On my 91 Rg550, I have V1 and V2 humbuckers and I though about changing them originally, but I don't find the pickups that bad. how good are they really, are V1 and V2 considered good pickups like the Dimarzio IBZ? If so, in tone what dimarzio would they compare to, are they PAF-ish or Tone...

    1. DiMarzio Evo2 bridge (£42) - bought used right here and installed for less than a week. Mint condition, with about 3.5" wire left (enough for bridge position). Sounds great but I'd like a higher output pickup to match my Evo neck which is really hot. Pic (Evo2 right). 2. DiMarzio Blue...

    Well, it had to be done, and goddamnit I got it done. Now I'm gonna have to sell my S540LTD, but I never play it. This baby has excellent tone, Hum from Hell in the neck, Fred in the Bridge.
  15. Pickups & wiring
    So I just puchased a brand new Evo bridge from ****, and I need to find the perfect matching humbucker for my neck position. I'll be installing them into my RGT42DX. Neck-through, mahogany body. To be honest i only really use my neck position to get better articulation. I especially like to use...

    I'm after a chorus pedal but unsire which to get. Any recommendations? I almost entirely play blues now, with a little bit of rock-ish stuff too and I'm after something to add a little bit of warmth to my rhythm and it has to be robust as f*ck as I'm not the most gentle of people. Any pointers...
  18. Pickups & wiring
    I know many like these in the neck but anyone like the pro in the bridge spot of a RG? I was told that they are great for a very tight,balanced, lower output paf tone and have great pinch harmonics? i like the tone of "satch boogie" and that is all pros on there remind me of the "hot for...

    hey all, i'm new here and have a question about pick-up choices for lower tunings.. I just received my Ibanez RG470xl, strung it with .14-.70's and tuned it A-A. It sounds massive, but i think i'm going to look for a slightly clearer bridge pickup, with more low end response. i'm down to these...

    Firstly, yea, I know it's a Squier and those of you with higher end guitars may cast a dubious eye on this project, but hey - it's for a friend and it's for fun. Like many of you, I'm a guitar mechanic that loves working on them as much as playing them. Specs: 1992 Squier Strat. Made in...
