So I own a Washburn WI14 (I know, it's not that great of a guitar), and I'm getting ready to throw some Invaders into it. I would like your opinions on this. I play stuff like Eyes set to Kill and Avenged Sevenfold.

Invaders are muddy as hell, and just don't sound good in general. Try something else.

What's your amp? It might make more sense to save the money for a new amp.
#5
Don't buy new pickups until your amp is at least of decent quality, and don't buy Invaders unless you're after a really specific sound with a really specific set of gear, which I'm guessing you don't have.

I'm playing out of a little 15w Randall right now, but I play out of a Peavy half stack for band practice.

I love my SD Invader in my custom made Les Paul. It's freaking awesome for bridge position. I also like it for clean sound even if it'S a bit muddy. I like the muddiness. But in my neck position I have a SD Jazz pickup. Also great.

I disagree with the notion that you should wait till you have a good amp to get good pick ups, getting my seymore duncan alnico 2s held me off for quite a few years till I was able to afford a Marshall Vintage Modern 2466 100 Watt Half Stack. Of course my first amplifier was a Fender Bandmaster and so it was a great sounding amp to begin with, but with that said my Jay Turser Les Paul copy with the alnico 2s sounds great in even the cheapest piece of $hit amplifier, 5 watt wal mart amps included, but in my 2466 Marshall Half stack its a pure eargasm!.

Most aftermarket pick ups will sound better than any stock medium range guitar pick up.

I think it's a 200w. What do you mean by 5150? (I know, imma newb.)


5150 would be the model of Peavy. I'm not really a Peavy fan but I've grown to respect them a little bit and the 5150s I've heard are pretty nice sounding. I'm a Marshall guy thru and thru.

If you could give us the model of Peavy it is and weather or not its solid state or a tube amp that would help greatly in us helping you find a decent pick up.

To be completely honest with you, the Invaders are already ordered. I was going to look for an amp after the pickups to fit the sound I want. I'm looking for a good distortion that makes the higher notes stand out more.

Marshall Vintage Modern ;-)

Clearity and balls across the board! Its a gain monster, will throw out some of the most iconic distortion you could ever ask!.

Without a boost or mod this thing isn't exactly a high-gain monster.

I don't think you even listened to my clips, because what you said is just not the case.

My tone is dripping with gain, and I don't even have the pre amps maxed out lol. detail is at 7 and body is at 3.... lol much more room for gain. Maybe a decent guitar is all thats needed for you next time you try one out.

Very nice. I like. What would be the price of this beast?


You can find them on ebay for around $1000 for just the head. Well worth the money. I find it to be the best new amplifier on the market for rock & metal and everything else you need. If you play Aveneged Sevenfold this is your amp!. The thing that makes it so versatile is the 2 pre amp gain knobs that shape your tone, almost any tone can be had.
