I really don't wanna go dual-emgs like everyone else. I love the sound of the SH-4 for solo'ing and I desperately want a humbucker that can hold a f*cking harmonic. I know either the emg 81 or 85 would do it too but like I said I don't wanna go dual EMG. everyone does that.

Plus the duncan is cheaper.

Anyone have any experience with this? Also, what else would anyone recommend for the bridge pickup? I play mostly stuff like thrash & death metal. I need something that can handle some rough distortion without being noisy as hell, preferably has a bright attack and handles high trebles well. Basically, a thrash metal bridge pickup suited to rhythm.

If not I'll just get the EMG.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

You wouldn't be able to mix the two together since one is active and the other is passive.

I've never heard of the JB in the neck, but it might be able to alleviate the issues I have with it as a bridge pickup.

Aw, crap. There goes that. I'd prefer actives.

oh, and your pinch harmonic issue could probably be solved with practicing on your vibrato. but a JB for the neck sounds too powerful. i'd go with a PAF pro in the neck, and an seymour duncan Sh-5 or sh-11 in the bridge. but let your amp do most of the work. what kind do you have?

It's the same level ****tiness, just louder and more expensive.

I'm not a big fan of actives going into modeling amps, but it's your $$ .

I vote for a new amp.

Damn. The DP151 PAF pro sounds kick ass.

The DP159 Evo Bridge sounds sweet too.

151 in the neck and 159 in the bridge?

&& I like my amp. Sure it's not the best, I'll give it that. But I like the sound I get out of it.

It's a pain in the ass to work half the time but it works. It's not like I'm gigging just yet, and I'll get a new amp sooner or later.

dude there was a guitar world thread on this and it recomended that you put like a 81 in the bridge then get like a seymour duncan 59 in the bridge but i wouldnt do that instead maybe get a seymour duncan distoartion for the bridge only because it would probly match a bit more better

You can't mix them (aka have them both on at the same time via the middle position of a 3 position switch).

You are able to have them on separately .

Those pickups will only sound kick ass through a good amp, which you don't have.

And contrary to what you think, you DON'T like the sound you get out of your amp - if you did you wouldn't be trying to change it with pickups, would you?

Pickups won't make a damned bit of difference with your amp, you might as well wipe your ass on a couple of $100 bills for all the good they'll do.

It's an easy fix. You can either separate the cicuits and have the passive an a 250/500K pot and the active on the 25K, or you can buy an EMG PA2 and wire it to the output of the SD and match the impedence to the active and use the active pup's pots. I did this on my guitar and I love it. If you want to go this route or just want me to explain it more in detail, let me know.
