Hey guys, I have been playing on my Duncans for a few months now, came from EMGs. I am a big Metallica fan and always used EMGs in my guitars. The tone of the SDs though just kills them. So I put them in my Jackson first, a full shred and a jazz, and I added 2 3-way on-on-on switches (one for each pickup) which allows for parallel/coil-tap/series. I really like the tones this guitar gives from my Marshall.
So I pulled my EMG81/85 out of my LTD M2 bought a Screamin' Demon and a hot rail to throw in my LTD M2. I have not received my pots yet, but I am going to have 1 vol, 1 tone, both push/pull pots for coil-taps, and a single toggle (on-on) for phase reversal.
I also took the EMG 81/60 out of my Epi Les Paul Custom and threw in a JB in the bridge, and a '59 in the neck. Still waiting on the pots, but I am going with the Jimmy Page wiring on this one, I custom ordered the 59 so it came with a 4 conductor cable, and the logo on the face of the pickup.
Also Pictured are my 94 jackson rhoads. with EMG81tw and EMG89r and my old ex-50 with dual emg-81s. My 67 V has the stock pickups, I had EMG fever and had 81's in that for awhile, but have found the stocks sound much better.
Feel free to comment.
In a Squier strat I have at work, I put in a Little JB in the bridge, a duckbucker in the middle, and a little 59 in the neck, man what a difference!!! ha, I didn't think there was much I could do to help that guitar, but through my AVT20 Marshall 10"er I have at work, it sounds good. I tried a custom custom in the bridge of my strat and pulled it because it was a little too bright for my likings.
