xafier Posted August 6, 2004 Report Share Posted August 6, 2004 I'm looking for advice on pickups to use in my current project, been looking over reviews n stuff... but I really haven't a clue where to start, theres that many different pick-ups to chose from, so I thought maybe I could ask in here and people could give me a few suggestions then I can read up on some reviews and maybe try them out in a store... OK, my guitar design first, just in case you aint seen it It's based on an Ibanez Iceman, I like Icemans so I decided to build one just with the extra horn Anyways, for bridge I'm looking for something that will give me a nice metal sound... I mostly play Metallica, Maiden, Sabbath, Deep Purple, some newer stuff like System of a Down, Hammerfall, Nine Inch Nails... So it needs to be a nice metal sound, but nothing really screamingly crazy or icky nu-metal... for the neck I'm looking at something more blue's style, for those metallica intro's, metallica/hammerfall style acoustic type balad sections... and stuff a little more crunchy but still in that area like pink floyd and zepplin stuff... umm... I think thats about all the info I can give... hardware wise I'm thinking of volume pot, tone pot with push/pull for coil-tapping... 3 way selector switch, bridge/both/neck thanks for your advise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
