im looking a pickup that is VERY loud.. the hottest high output pickup in existance. i was wondering if anyone knew of a pickup louder than a duncan invader. cuz thats what i have now. and unfortunately it sounds exactly like delonge. im looking for my own new tone that noone famous has already dried up. HELP ME OUT! (i dont care about price.)

....Why. Most hot pickups sound like guff, as the Invader proves. You could either go actives or get some quality PAFs or something and boost them to death with a high-level Clean Booster. Ultra hot ones tend to have no clarity and are pretty much not worth the money for their windings.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Jackson J90C. 16 ohms output. Extremely loud, louder then my EMGs, DiMarzio ToneZone, or Duncan JB, even if it isn't higher output then say a JB. Really crisp and clear too.

EDIT: Also check out Seymour Duncans Custom Shop... I'm sure they could make you whatever you want.

DiMarzio X2N. It will blow your mind.

i know that hot pickups are commonly steriotyped as worthless. but im not looking for a pickup to sound good for anythig but heavy detuned deathmetal and trebel cranked pop punk. jazz lovers have their turn ons. i have mine.

You're not looking for a pickup for anything but Heavy Metal and Pop Punk? What's that mean in English?

Ah right. Keep your Invader then. Or try actives, Blackouts, Livewires, EMG81, all that kinda thing, maybe an X2N, I dunno, to each his own I guess.

No offense to Randy Rhoads, but he beat you to it. His tone was BAD. Amazing player, not-so-amazing tone. As for what you are looking for, the Invader would work fine. Its high output, bland sounding, and muddy for leads. EMG81s aren't bad tone wise like some people like to make them out to be, and would also probably work well.
