hello Pickup maniacs
I have question for you, my guitar is an Ibanez Artist 1982 handcrafted in Japan, this series (AR 3000) are muchhh better that the new models, better precision quality which new Artists don't have anymore,... massive production,.. the guy in Ibanez told me that,..do you belive,.. !
ok, i am intending to install SH-6 duncan in bridge positon, my pair of pickups now are Super hambuckers 58 from Ibanez, it's vintage look and vintage sound,.. ehehe, i don't want that, i want raw power madness, i had SH-6 pickup in my 7 string Ibanez and it was crazy **** going on, lot of power, but a little lack of harmonics,.. but that' s the neck pickup job ,...
Do you belive that my friend's Artist AR 250 had more high gain, more response than my guitar,... but he had model made in China and some ****y pickups,.. and my Pickup was rebuild,.. all the wires were replaced,.. and so on,.. but the result ,... the AR 250 made in china with crappy pickups sounded better than my guitar with "good" pickups,.. hehe hillarious, also i must mentioned that i have active pickup,... cause the guy which i bought the guitar made some custom wiring,.. i mean i have switch off/ on- like boost, but this kills all the power , all harmonics of pickup, the tone is crappy, muddy, ,... i had a lot experiences with pickups,.. EMG ( 81), Dimarzios, and finally SH-6 for 7 string, and it kills all,...
hehe i wanted Dino's pickup of FF, but Dino had those 707 custom wiring EMG's so,.. **** EMG and their actives, passive EMG are no comment,... like car with no tires... no soul, the pickups are not good for me!!,..
You know there's a lot great pickups in the market.,, but a lot of them are advertised,.. on net,.. and so on,.. people belive what they saw, what they read,.. but the ears are the most important thing,.. what do you hear,...!!! you must try it!!!!
There's a lot of people who work in small basements , worshops and they built the best pickups... but you won't hear them,... cause they made those pickups for fun and for their own pleasure,....
so Seymour duncan pickups will do the job, cause i had seymours, and i will have it for sure, the quality is amazing,..
So my choice will probably be the Sh-6, or Custom custom, ,.. the guy from Seymour support tell me that it is also the great value to pick the 59 pickup,.. but i want power , low chunk with lot treble, lot mids and bass,..-high gain pickup,... the guitar itself produces a lot of bass frequencies,.. my guitar tech told me that,.. riff madness, so i'll go with Sh-6 bridge,..probably
what's your opinion? Sh-6, Custom custom, or 59? -bridge position
