I've had my G&L Rampage, Jerry Cantrell tribute, for sometime now and have never had it restrung or properly setup, and have planned on replacing the pickup at such time that I did.
The stock pup sounds fine, but I just want something a little more special.
The U.S. made version comes with a Seymour Duncan Jb bridge pup, and I had planned to put one of those in my guitar, but recently I bought a PRS that has one in the bridge and I like it, but I don't think it sounds so great that I want it in two guitars, especially since the Rampage only has the one pup and no tone knob.
So now I'm thinking something else...but what?
I will using this guitar for mostly high gainish stuff, and one other point to make is that almost my whole life (guitar wise) I have backed off the tone knob about half way, when using the bridge pickup, so it's not so bright and gives a darker sound while retaining the strong crunch of a bridge pup, however the Rampage has no tone knob, so I am looking for a darker sounding pup, I dont want to have to re dial my eq every time I want to play this guitar... Ya dig
So any G&L rampage players out there that have put something else besides th jb in there ax?
Thanks ahead of time for any advise

I just realized I posted this in the gear accessories forum, I apologize if that was against the rules. I reposted it in the guitar area, but any input will still be appreciated

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

i haven't tried a rampage but a dimarzio tone zone is pretty dark (or even a super distortion).

as long as the TZ isn't too dark.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Bareknuckle Warpigs are IMO brilliant. A bit expensive(Hand wound in the UK) but worth it. Or perhaps a Seymour Duncan Black Winter.

Contact The Creamery and tell them what your looking for and they will custom wind you a pickup. I'd also suggest putting a push/pull pot to give a bit more tonal range if you want it.
