    Default Megadeth RIP pickup?

    I heard that Dave Mustaine was using the X2N pickup back to the day Rust in Peace. But from the Holy war video in Rusted Pieces DVD, it can be seen that the X2N was on the neck position, while the bridge pickup had an ordinary humbucker look (two row of dots). Anyone know what the bridge pickup is? May it be a JB (I don't think a JB can balance with an X2N on the neck, as the latter is extremely hot)?

    I always thought he used the jb for Rust In Peace, maybe not. I am almost positive he used a Lawrence L500XL bridge for Peace Sells though.

    I recall seeing ads of him with his signature V, which had a Lawrence XL-500 bridge and Jackson neck pickup

    other way around the JB was in the bridge and the lawrence was in the neck. The signature King V I used to have came loaded that way.

    Thanks for all the inputs.

    This makes sense as I can't tell XL500 and X2N apart from the video. Anyway I don't think X2N can be a good neck pup.
