Members Cougher Posted January 2, 2010 Members Share Posted January 2, 2010 I have an old RG750. Stock pickups as we all know suck. Bought a Bill Lawrence 500XL from gearhounds.com (never heard of them either but they are the only people selling this pickup.... fishy....) I then proceeded to find out more info about this company "Bill Lawrence". Even fishier stuff. This company is beyond fishy. Who makes them? Some guy named Jzchak Wajcman. But there are two websites, billlawrence.com and billlawrenceUSA.com, both make pickups and both 2 different people. Did I get a knock off??? I had the pickup installed, playing out of my Peavey 5150. It sounds TERRIBLE. The noisiest thing in the world. No amount of EQ'ing could make this thing sound good. It has LESS gain than the stock neck pickup, and sounds like a constant wah pedal. I bought this pickup to be brutal and now my metal guitar, at high gain, sounds like SRV with lots of noise. What gives???????????????????????? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
