Banjomikez is great! Bought my slimed out BW’s from him years ago.
Seymour Duncan: We have 100+ BW bridge pickups
Seymour Duncan: We also have 100+ BW neck pickups
Also Seymour Duncan: NO SETS AVAILABLE. ALL ON BACK ORDER!
I was hoping to buy some Dimarzios from him but unfortunately that damn ebay global fees scheme is in place
I've actually lowered my bridge BW a bit now and chirping has subsided, they need a bit more fine tuning, but so far so good!
I was looking at trying to lower my BWs to reduce volume slightly, but my RG7321 doesn’t have a pickup ring. Is there a way to adjust pickup height on that guitar?
I'm using the stock screws from my RG with no mounting ring and they adjust fine? In fact I don't have any padding underneath either and they still adjust pretty well. Not as smooth as a spring/pickup ring installation but it still works fine.
Aren't they direct mounted? Just turn the phillips screws clockwise.
Guess mine won’t go any lower, then. Thought maybe it was an issue. I’m clearly a bassist first, guitarist second!
Actually I've had Invader too in the bridge of RG7321. There was lot of room under it, and it was installed too loose. Maybe it has too much foam underneath? Though pickup route height may vary between different years of manufacturing, but Invader doesn't even have those long pole screws which are sticking out from the baseplate.
Been re-tweaking my rig the last few days, and I think I’ve got it all figured out without having to adjust the pickup. Great sounding rig with all my guitars, each component sounds great for each guitar without any tweaking. Really lets the pickups shine and show each of their characteristics. What are your thoughts on the Invader? Looking at one for my 6 string. That or maybe a Distortion. Or Pegasus...
Quick question. Is there any difference between the "blackened" pickup loaded ltds and the "real-deal" Duncans?
Iirc, they are direct mounted, would that be problematic if used with pickup rings?
The Blackened ones use hex polepieces, the regulars use standard screw/slug layouts. It slightly effects the tone by making it slightly tighter and more aggressive.
Soundwise it's not a significant difference ime.
depends on the mounting screw used. You'll probably have to fill the hole as mounting screws are usually biggger than pickup ring screws ime. You could either solder on a small nut to take pickup ring screws, or you can do it the ghetto way with soldering the hole, then drilling the proper sized hole through the solder. The uber ghetto way is to take either a used or spare guitar string (or wire) and put a few wraps around rim of the hole. All of them are plenty effective, but the guitar string/wire trick is the fastest and least involved.
Can confirm BWs + basswood is an excellent combination for down-tuned heaviness.
Oh for fucking sure man. Made for each other
SEYMOUR DUNCAN ONLY HAD ONE BW SET LEFT AND I BOUGHT IT!!! WOOOP!!!
Its going to be the blackest of winters if no more BW's are around.
I asked for a set of covered ones but SD is so backed up they can't even take orders or even give an estimate.
I ordered a set of pickup covers and the regular BWs and I'll just have my tech do the work.
SD is all messed up right now. They need some milk
Hold on to your dooky, it's about to get spooky!
I have a loose set of black winters around here somewhere, which i really should install into one of my guitars. This thread makes me want to do it.
Do you guys think they would rip in an Ibanez RG?
