So my, uncle just gave me a dimebucker and I think I'll hook it up tomorrow. Is that a good idea? I play metal so I jumped at his offer, and i have a regular seymour in the neck for non metal.

what is a "regular seymour"? and what are you taking out to put the dimebucker in?

A JB maybe.


TS, Try it out. If you don't like the tone, go back to the original pickup.

But the output levels might not match between the two pickups.
Volume drops at the climax of the song are ever so disappointing, and you may well have to drop the dimebucker so far that it loses clarity.

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

it would gain clarity if you dropped it down. it would lose output though.


I don't get the point of this thread, you already have the pickup. And your bridge pickup doesn't work. What exactly are you asking? If you should put it in or not? I really don't see any argument for not putting it in.

If he gave it to you, what do you have to lose? Give it a shot, and if you don't like it, sell it and get a better pickup - I'm sure he won't mind if you sell that expensive and almost universally criticised pickup for one with a much nicer sound.
