  • EMG 81X

    EMG 81X - "Not worth the extra $10 over the regular 81"

    04/30/12

    Now don't get me wrong, this is still a great pickup but I don't find it necessary to spend the extra $10 over the regular 81, not a big enough difference. I made a few recordings comparing the regular 81 next to the 81x, both in the same guitar, sa…

  • EMG 81

    EMG 81 - "Tight crunchy, but stale tone"

    04/30/12

    I tried to avoid active pickups for the longest time, just didn't want to have to deal with batteries and all the negative views on them. Eventually I just bought one and was pleasantly surprised. They do have a different sound from passive pickups b…

  • Bill Lawrence USA L-500-XL BILL & Beckie

    Bill Lawrence USA L-500-XL BILL & Beckie - "One of my all time favorites"

    04/30/12

    I first got one of these in my 2006 Dean CFH ML. I absolutely loved it. Made my pinch harmonics effortless and just made playing more fun. VERY articulate, some complain it's too bright but in the right guitar it just sings. I put them in all mah…

  • Seymour Duncan SH-8B Invader Bridge

    Seymour Duncan SH-8B Invader Bridge - "Great... at what it does"

    04/30/12

    Seymour Duncan SH8 Invader. 3 ceramic magnets with 12 large hex pole pieces. It by no means a bad pickup, it's just is it what you want? I bought it mainly because ole Papa Hetfield had used one in his Electra V for Kill Em All and I wanted to have…

  • EMG 707

    EMG 707 - nickname009's review

    02/21/12

    I can't really recall WHEN I got this pickup but it was definitely quite a few years back when I was in the 7 string phase like most people were in the late 90s early millennium. I had a bought a used Ibanez S7420. Loved the damn thing, the neck was …

  • PRS Dragon I

    PRS Dragon I - "Way different to the Dragon II"

    02/02/12

    Just like a real Dragon I think the PRS Dragon I pickups are pretty mythical beasts. It is pretty hard to find a guitar with them now that PRS has not used them for a while. These pickups are something special. They have four conductor wiring so you …

  • DiMarzio DP423 Injector Bridge

    DiMarzio DP423 Injector Bridge - nickname009's review

    02/01/12

    I can't believe nobody's reviewed this one yet! I think these new single coil pickups have to be some of the best out there today with it's noiseless technology. Not only is it super quiet, but it still actually sounds like a single coil. The older m…

  • DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion

    DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion - "Rock n' Roll!"

    01/31/12

    This pickup was one of the very first high output replacement pickups offered. It came out in the seventies and was used by everyone from Ace Frehley to Al DiMeola. It was noted for its very high output sound that worked very well with a high gain am…

  • Tremol-no Classic w/ Deep-C

    Tremol-no Classic w/ Deep-C - "About time some one made this, and did it right!"

    01/31/12

    Unlike the guys that made term stops before this one actually works. And works well. What is it? It's a device you install in your guitar. I hooks into one of the holes on the term block where the trm springs are attached. So 5 spring guys are out of…

  • GFS Power Rails bridge

    GFS Power Rails bridge - "Budget alternative to an X2N"

    01/30/12

    GFS pickups is a brand of pickups sold by a small online guitar parts store called GuitarFetish. They sell all sorts of brand name and no name parts for guitars. They are mostly known for their house brand pickups that are usually very cheap but perf…
