The time as finally arrived for me to put a new bridge pickup in my Kamikaze 4. It has a maple body, neck, and fingerboard. I already have a maple body/neck/fingerboard in my other Lynch ESP, the M1 Tiger, with a Screamin' Demon in the bridge. I love the SD, but I don't want 2 guitars with the same sound anymore.
I was thinking about going for something a little more classic sounding, to really complement my '85 JCM800 (50W) ... So, what do you guys think of the Alnico II Pro humbucker?
I'm not concerned with the output level of the pickup; I have tons of gain in my amps and such. I am aware that the A2P is a bit lower output than the SD.
Does anyone have any first hand experience with both of these pickups? (I'm thinking Gearjonser, Scott, and Zerb ... I know you guys have tons of experience with this sort of thing). You know they style of guitar I play: George Lynch, Jake E Lee, Vivian Campbell, Dave Murray, etc.
How do the SD and the A2P compare to each other tonally in the context of the type of music that I play? My sig has my other gear.
