    Hey All,

    What pickups would you put on this guitar? I recently got it and although it is a nice sounding guitar, I think the pickups are lacking clarity and overall character. Any experience with this guitar with different pickups? Im guessing DiMarzio sor Duncans will be my best bets but am unsure on which pickups will be a good match for it. I've read about DiMarzio Gravity Storms and they seem nice but there are so little reviews of them on the internet. What would you suggets as a versatile pickup set for this guitar(basswood body, maple neck, rosewood board)?

    Thanks

    Gravity Storms would be great in that guitar. I would also look in to the Dark Matter and the Titan.

    Gravity Storms rule. While there are pickups that do the extreme metal tone better, a GS set will excel when it comes to versatility. And they're awesome when playing leads.

    I'm assuming you mean the Dark Matter 2 pickups, as the original Dark Matters are just Gravity Storms in the steampunk housing. :yesway:

    Gravity Storms on a basswood body work and sound great! I had these on my JemFP2 and loved every minute of it! I currently have them on my J Custom as well.
