so my invader came in today. i have always wanted to try this pickup but i was scared it would be a big muddy mess.
well i installed it. yes it did have a big bass response but no more than other pickup i have such as the alt8 2x ceramic custom wilde l500xl. it definatlt has a big midrange push. the treble i did not find dark at all just not bright like a distortion. i actually found it a bit brighter than the alt8 and 2x custom.
as far as mud goes granted it is not a demon or full shred but i found it about as articulate as the distortion.
now to be fair it is installed in a bc above average bright superstrat. it has a heavier than normal alder body. i am also running eminence v12 in my 5150 half stack and they seem to be pretty articulate speakers.
also this is a mj wound invader from the 80's.
so what do you guys think.
1) the invader happens to work very well in that guitar.
2) your rig must be articulate enough to handle the invader.
3) mj sprinkles magic fairy dust on her pickups.
4) a differnt opinion not listed.
