I put one in my Epi Les paul custom and it's very good distorted metal, although it's not the most versatile of metal pickups - it's great for solid non-muddy bottom end though

In my friends strat, it is very bright. Sounds good though, I find it accels in Alternative, Ska, And punkish personally. It cleans up well for a high output pickup.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

^ Woof...in a strat? I can imagine that being quite shrilly
In the mahogony it rounds up and becomes more 'powerful' sounding, which is why i suppose it suits my les paul pretty well

Although..for the SG..it may be too thin to get that, and go into the land of shrillyness, the ceramic magnet doesn't help

A custom custom may be worth a look at

I think the SH-6 would be a good choice for metal in your SG based upon your amp set up aswell

Go for it, and if you dont like it you can always ebay it for little loss
But read as many reviews as you can, on here, on harmoney central, the SD pickup selector function aswell as the Dimarzio version of it/any other pickup company - at least know what you're buying and what to expect

Was playing it through my EPI VJ, very dark amp. Sounded really trebly still, but not too bad.

I literally just got one in my Epiphone explorer the other day, i think its quite bassy if that makes sense? But it is very fat and well worth getting.

JB/'59 or Custom/'59


He wants a thick sounding pickup; the JB is quite the opposite .

The Distortion, Custom, or even the '59 would definitely work.

i have the SH-6 in my maverick and it works very well, but i think it will be much to topy for an SG.

something like the SH-5 or the SH-8 would work better, even though i find the SH-8 to be a bit flat sounding.

but go and try some guitars with them in and see what you like best.
