  • ITS SUMMER TIME AGAIN

    ...........and you know what that means! Another guitar project! This year I am going for a 80's hair metal guitar. SO I was wondering what pick up I should get for the hairiest of the hair metal songs?

    Also I will be creating a thread once i start the build!

    Thanks!
    Connor

    I hate the pickup, but it really does that 80's hair metal crunch like no other.

      What's the reason for the hate!?

        It just doesn't fit my style or the tone I'm after. Too much and too loose lowend, not as much note separation and clarity as I'm used to with my Hellabucker, and just not punchy enough.

        Really really shines for mid-high gain crunch though. If I was in an 80's cover band I'd be rocking one happily.

          I agree that a JB can do "80s" tone well. They're easy to find used on eBay, since they're popular, and they are reasonably priced if you're buying new.
