So I'm going to the local music store and getting my guitar set up. I'm also thinking of getting a new pickup while their because these crapshoe Duncan Designed just can't handle metal. Or anything. Especially not pinch harmonics. Or anything that ends in -onic. I've been thinking about the Bill Lawrence USA or xl-100 like Dime used since I'm a big Pantera fan, but I also want to play things in the As I Lay Dying and Chiodos genres as well. I've also considered Blackouts and the EMG 81. This is gonna be the neck pickup atm only, just for leads. My guitar is a Jackson DK1 Dinky, and current amp Roland Microcube. I know people will tell me amp first, but I have heard the difference of pick ups in this amp. My other guitar has a much better harmonic sound too it, unless its just this jackson. =(
The Bill Lawrence and beautiful and cheap, do it.
