Just got a JB in the mail that i traded my CE-3 for and it sounds fantastic! So much more articulate than the stock INF's! I only got to try it on my Line 6 spider practice amp so far since my Mesa's tubes are blown. However, I can hear so much harmonics and clarity, and overall BALLS in my sound. Very satisfied

I value good pickups from now on!!!

Happy new gear! It will sound much better on your mesa lol, poor soul having to test it on the spider.

I had a jb in my g-400 but I've been through like 6 different ones in that guitar lol, settled for a cheap one I found on ebay :0 HNPD!

i took a picture for this thread with my grandmas old phone but when i tried to email it to myself i discovered she disabled texting!

just imagine this:



into this:






BTW, I completely wired it wrong. After 30 minutes of fumbling with solder and ruining many cables and having to solder together pieces of wire from the old pickup, i finally looked up a guide. Tried to follow 2 different guides 2 times each. Ruined more wire, still didnt sound right.


Ultimately, I started by grounding both pickups, and soldering everything until i heard noise. I finally got it!! Even the 3 way switch worked, and theres no hum!

Dear god, the cleans! THE CLEANS!!


I can articulate EVERY note i'm playing! It's so clear, it's like i'm listening to a goddamn cd! WHY DIDNT I GET A NEW PICKUP EARLIER!??!


THE DISTORTION!!!

I can play a full 6 string chord and articulate EVERY note in the chord!! No longer a muddy mess of shit, where the ONLY way to get articulation was to play no more than 2 notes at a time. I love this thing! I have so much power! I can NOT wait to get new tubes for my Mesa!!


How'd you guys like some clips? I recently received an e609, and tomorrow I'm going to buy a used mixer I found off craigslist.

It's a DC-5. Sounds BLAH through my stock inf's. I tried a couple of ESP's with I dont know what kind of pickups, but it just kicked the mesa in the ass and made it start sounding like some kind of amazing sound machine. I expect the same results once i get it running again

Congrats!
It's amazing what new pickups can do when it is a crappy pickup holding you back from great tone.
Warning- I wouldn't usually post a new gear thread unless you have pics ready.

Congrats!!!!!

Totally read JB backwards. Was gonna congratulate you on that, but... nice pup, anyway.

HNPD! I actually just took a JB out of my Jackson to put in a Super Distortion instead, but it's a damn good pickup. Enjoy

I hate when I miss out on stuff like that! Someone like 3 weeks ago gave away a pair of unused Mesa 6L6 for free.. it was a for sale thread but he said "f*** it i dont need these first one to ask gets them free!"

Damn..

yeah i mean, it was an ok pup, just didnt suit my style as much as the mini-humbucker i replaced it with.

i was going to remove it and the jazz i had in a guitar, prior to selling it, but tossed them in at no extra cost.

a really good deal i guess, as the guitar sold immediately.

good luck with the new gear

added a clip using a very old condenser microphone (with stereo 1/4 outputs, ha) Sound is not very full across the freq. spectrum, but i tried to tidy up with EQ. Will record with the e609 later when I get an XLR cable..
