Whats better for a really nice crunchy heavy metal sound for a bridge pickup?
Sh-8 invader or the Sh-13 Dimebucker

Possibly the only B.C rich fan on UG

Depending on the kind of sounds you want, and more importantly on your amp and guitar...

Duncan Custom or Distortion, Dimarzio D-Sonic, Breed or Super Distortion

i wanna see a clip of a recto buying some groceries.

I'm not a fan of either pick ups. I've played with either the invader or the dimebucker...forgot, but it sounded too cluttered up, didn't like it at all. I say look for something else...budget?

check out dimarzios. the super 2 rolls down the dimebucker, and the X2n is god-like. also the D activator is a new pickup that just came out used by Muhammed Suicmez of Necrophagist, I'm definately checking that one out.

SH-10 Full Shred. I dunno if anything else can beat it. =D

I like Full Shreds, but they're terribly limited. Very niche pickup if you ask me.

Duncan Customs, if you want SD.

When it comes to Duncan if you want versatility get the Duncan Custom and '59. If your just playing metal get The Full Shred and '59. For Dimarzio Super Distortion and PAF Pro

Now You Sir have one hell of a guitar and look more alive and look to have more stage presence than anyone else I've seen on this forum
EMG's sound like shit, so do Dimebuckers. Get a Custom or Duncan Distortion if you're going only for SD, but I would get DiMarzios...
why not EMG?

Schecter Loomis sig.

the highest.


Lets blaze, put this in your sig if you want to get high.
i would say eather
EMG 81
Duncan JB
Dimarzio DSonic
Dimarzio X2N
Bill Lawrence L-500XL ( i have it in my guitar) Dimebag used it before he got the Duncan custom about 2,3 albums after pantera came out.
And Nuno Bettencourt uses it...

There good pickups for metal but not so good for a clean sound,which is why i want to change them..

in the bridge?

The Invader is pretty chunky in the bridge of a mahogany guitar.
