Ok.

At the Moment i have a complete stock Squier Telecaster and i plan to change the bridge so i can fit a double coil/humbucker into it...and then i plan to put a Seymour Duncan LW-HMET.

what do you people think?

It'd sound better with a dimebucker, and a Fender 65R horizontal stack.


BTW, the R stands for reissue, SO IT'LL BE SICK YOU'LL SOUND JUST LIKE DIMEBAG AND JIMI AT THE SAME TIME. WHO ELSE THINKS SO?

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Dont get a dimebucker. But sure you can mod a telecaster with any humbucker and itll work fine.

I love how no one else gets the reference.

And TS, I think that would sound pretty good.

In all seriousness though, TS.

Don't get the LW-HMET. First of all, it's an active humbucker. Meaning, unless you want to pay someone to install the system for you, you're going to have to think of a system that works well for you in which the active is completely shut down when using the neck, and the neck is shut down while using the active. You can't just combine passive and active without a system that'll do that.


Second, the HMET is a high output pickup. Placing it in the bridge would probably suck for many reasons, a few being that a low output neck pickup and a highoutput bridge just doesn't work. It sounds bad. Second, unless Seymour Duncan have improved their wax potting, it'll be noisey as hell with all that metal around it.

My suggestion is to get a PAF Pro in the bridge. Unless of course you play some sort of brutal deathmetal, then I'd get a Crunch Lab or Tone Zone, or Super Distortion, based on your preference.

Nah, actives are great, they're just annoying to install, and have a bad reputation because of a few bad pickups, or as being too cookie-cutter pickup-switch because many morons just go LOLEMG85AND80RDABEST.

I like the content and attitude of this post even less than the obvious misspellings.
In short, If you want to insult others for their preferences in pickups, just don't.


Have a nice day.

well... i hate overhyped stuff.

and emgs are just...well there allright, but the people that usethem, or atleast the people that arnt pro's...

because,
A: there active.
B: by being active, they are harder to wire (makes more people make noob threads.)
C: being active they need a battery, or 2. (needing to rout, ect makes people make more threads)
D: most guitars dont have them, so a swap is needed (more threads!)


you see, because people want them, and the people who want them dont have skills in pickup swaps, they create alot of threads!


but yes.

its your own choice, use what ever pickup YOU want.

so dont make anoing "OPINION NEEDED D00DZ!!" threads...

No!! you could just go EMG 81 81 like me and stand out from the crowd. lol not really though.
But I would definatly look into some seymore duncun(its spelled wrong I know) jr 59's or something similar, I know guitar fetish pickups are pertty good too.
