    Plus his Distortion and JB pickups were custom wound to be slightly hotter. I think on occasion Lynch also stated he used an EMG 81. I think the Distortion was his main pickup though.

    It is an absolutely killer pickup. Can nail Dokken riffs (of course) with ease. My favorite "heavy" pickup.

    I think it is one of the few passive pickups available that sounds close to an EMG-81.

    I'd just like to say...not sure it matters.

    I know...you're just asking....but still.


    HAve you a good super strat...some saturated smooth, yet cutable distortion tone....and some attitude...and you'll cop his vibe much better than trying to copy some....SOME... of his gear.

    I'll add to the confusion and say that I read Wiked Sensation was a Duncan Custom.

    Hmm, I thought that pickup came out before wicked sensation, like around ULAK. My memory sucks.

    My friend had one years and years ago. I thought it was kinda cool. It's trebbly, but not in a harsh way. Not real high output but it cuts, has nice harmonics etc.

    That's what I remember but then again, this was years and years ago and my memory sucks.... Sorry, that wasn't really helpful, was it.

    That is the only pickup I'v ever owned that sounded great in any guitar I put it in. Great pickup in my opinion.
