Hello. i have an Ibanez S1 single coil pickup. I was wondering how would it sound on my Ibanez RG? Now i am using wilkinson pickups. My question is...is this Ibanez S1 pickup worth trying? i dont want to solder for nothing!
it's a bit meh. i doubt it's any better than your wilkinsons, though i could be wrong.
nothing special, aint terrible but better than a Squier or no name chinees pickup for sure.
On a side note I picked up a v1,v2,s2 set(they are AlnicoV) and put the v1,v2 in my Schecter to replace the Duncan Designed hb102 They are not much different sounding so the V1,V2 pups are real close to overwound sh2,sh4 set. Which not bad pups, just didn't get a different sound that I was trying to get by changing them out.
I'm actually a big fan of the S1 pickup in the neck position. I can get terrific strat tones out of it and distorted it sounds great for sweep picking.
