Jera Woden Posted February 13, 2006 Report Share Posted February 13, 2006 i have been shopping around for new pickups for my ivar johnson lp copy (its all maple it sounds good but weighs a ton) and i cant seem to decide what i really want. mostly i listen to and play classic rock 80s rock blues jazz and some of the classic metal. bands like ac/dc black crows Gn'r queensryche ugly kid joe bb king etc..... what im looking fr is a high output pickup with very good mids but not lacking in highs or lows. with a very good clean sound and good light distortion/ overdrive sound that is still capable of doing some heavy distortion/ metal sounds. what i have so far is a few combos. 490r - 498t classic lp setup 496r - 498t should be a bit hotter 496r - 500t from what ive been reading this is more of a metal setup. i have been looking only at bibsons cause its an lp copy and the dimarzios i have now suck bad for what i play i have looked at the 57 classics series and the burstbucker series but nither seem to be better than the cheaper ones. so please help me and tell me why youre saying i should get any pick ups you recomend.
