i have one. in the bridge it sounds good. in the neck it sounds better. heavy duty output.
it sounds good to me and im sure i dont have a terrible ear as some mite criticize after reading my post.

I think it's much to harsh and muddy, personally. That's my opinion after being in a band with a kid playing a Tom Delonge strat with an invader in the bridge.

i had one before. they're loud. that's about it.

do you want loud tone? or good tone?

so practically they're loud, they're high output, and so so on tone?

I live with invaders.

yes they are really loud but they get the job done.
people who dont lik invaders wont lik heavy metal.
invaders r not made for clean too. thats y i bought a 59 pickup for my neck, so i can play some clean tone.

tone is really muddy,

the reason people say they are muddy is they are mostly mid range and bass - not as many highs as other pickups. They would work best in a very bright sounding guitar.

according to: http://www.seymourduncan.com/comparetones

the Invader's bass / mid / treble is 7 / 8 / 4

comparatively a JB is 5 / 6 / 8 - so you're getting a lot more highs and more balanced bass and mids.

SD's Seth Lover model, 59, and Alnico II Pro - which are based on original old PAFs are listed at 6 / 4 / 8, 6 / 3 / 8 and 7 / 4 / 8 respectively. So compared to a the usual PAF type pickups the invader has quite a bit more mid range and much lower highs. It's output is also much hotter.

Why not just buy a pickup that isn't so warm in the first place though? And the price/quality ratio is stupid. Most Duncan's are cheaper and better.

They're garbage.

The DiMarzio X2N totally bends the Invader over and rapes it.

If you're too lazy too look yourself then I'm too lazy to help, more to the point...if you've already got the pickup and are about to install it what's the point of this thread?

^ agreed, if you've already got it you might as well install it to see if you like it...

Were you talking about the EQ of the pickup? I don't see any price/quality ration anywhere...

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

i have played with one in the bridge for awhile and i really like it. It is great for heavier rock and some punk. It's not to good on the clean setting but thats why i have a jazz in the neck. Plus those black caps look bad ass.

i think he means it's not very good for the price.

Sadly that's the main reason they're so popular.
