  • Suggest to me some Carvin pickups

    I've decided to start saving for a Carvin, and I'd like to know which Carvin pickups sound the best for warm tones with a little grind. I'm not a metal guy, but I play anything from blues and classic rock to tool. I'm specifically wanting to go with Carvin pickups for now because if I can't get the guitar without swapping the pu set I'd be pretty happy.
    Good Deals with: Shred-o-holic (Bought his JVM410h), Chris39 (My Laney VH100r for his Tweaker 40, Boss Octave, MXR Classic Overdrive and 50$), Unclemeat (Bought his Legacy III), lots of others I can't remember.

    I would recommend the C22B for the bridge position, and a C22J for the neck. I've never had a Carvin, but I've always gotten their catalogs, and those pickups seem like the best all-around pups they have.

      I would go with a C22T and either a C22N or C22J.

          I like the AP-11 single coils and will seek them out in the used market. Their humbucker pickups used to be a bargain compared to the other mainstream brands, but not so much any more as they are not much cheaper than Duncans or Dimarzios.



          For the price point, I would much rather have a set wound by Rose.

            Blasphemy!
            One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?
