Right, you may have seen my guitar build on the fourums (its in my sig. if your interested)

But was just wondering if anyone had any experience of the motherbucker

I want alot of versitality with this guitar and i just figured 27.5k output is going to give me that. am i right?

i know its going to be bassy but i don't mind this.

A friend uses Kent Armstrong pickups, apparently they are the bees knees. But that's all I can really help with.

BOSS GT8

Want to build a Jackson, to be fairly freaking honest.

no not really 27.5k just means its gonna be powerful as f**k, probabley not very versatile at all
but a friend of mine uses one and likes it

Well, if i'm going with my plan and use a P90 in the neck,
i'm going to have a lot of power in the bridge, for distortion etc
and then the P90 for clean and blues tone

You don't need anywhere near 27.5k for distortion. That will create such a volume disparity between the two pickups.
#6
No, for versatility you need a balanced pickup. And mark my words, a pickup change won't make a big difference with your POS amp. Don't bother with pickups until your amp is nice.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

oh no the amps being changed very soon. so thats not an issue.

and its not a pickup change, its a new build.
#8
Hmm good. Just make sure you don't get another crap amp.

What will the guitar be mostly used for? Usually my favourite pickup for any occasion is a hot PAF-style pickup, like the DiMarzio FRED, 'Mo Joe, PAF Joe, PAF Pro, that sorta thing.

no no, its either an all valve or tube marshall. not sure yet

and it will mainly be quite heavy music, but i like do like to play a much wider variation
#10
Just so you know, valves and tubes are one and the same

Hmmm, If you plan on heavy stuff I'd get a medium-hot pickup in there. Like a DiMarzio Air Norton or Breed. The Breed's ultra fat, sounds like an LP when in a Strat, and the Norton's pretty nice and balanced.

right just out of interest

with the motherbucker right,
as its wired as 2 humbuckers together, would it be possible to have a switch on it that would be able to change it from just a normal humbucker too both?

Personally i can't see why it wouldn't be but i don't know how it would be done.

so what kind of switch could i use to do this?

or would i be able to do it using two killswitches,
or 1 killswitch on one of the humbuckers, and just wire the other humbucker normally

would that work?
