    Well I ordered a pair of blackouts about a week ago and got them a few days ago. Finally installed them today. And I'm totally blown away. :flame: The tone on these things are immense, everything I've been looking for. In my honest opinion these blow away the D-activators. I had to sand some of the pickup pegs down to fit in the body and I had to slightly drill the holes where the pots go in, but all was well. :p

    These in my opinion sound very very similar to my EMG's with a 18v mod. The tone is spectacular. Pics soon sorry too lazy and busy playing them to take any right now. :p Just wanted to let you guys know, and blow off some good steam. :shred: :yesway:

    Agreed, absolutely beautiful! Definitely the right pickups for that guitar - visually, at least!

    Still waiting for the clips ;)
