I wonder if it comes with a free gift card for Infowar's online shop?
hahahahaha INFOWARS!!!! Where he gets his new lyrics.
Back to passives eh?
I wonder how far away they are from his old standby...
They're exactly his JB/Jazz set just more expensive!
I thought he had a JB in the neck as well.
Like the JB/Jazz set, but with some horrible side effects and actually contains soy.
Interesting.....or like has been said, you could just get the Jazz/JB and be all set for the rust/countdown era.
So apparently it's a JB/'59 set with a tighter low end, less mids, and a more aggressive high end.
Or as someone said on another forum... a Distortion/'59 set.
But it does sound interesting. The JB would sound much better with a tighter low end and a slight dip in the mids.
A tighter low end can be obtained by tweakin JB poles btw
Or a magnet swap.
So the bridge pickup is the only thing altered. The '59 is just a regular '59, but with satin bobbins.
I didn't quite care for the tone. The harmonic content is off.
And if I bought this, it damn well better come with an INFOWARS gift card. I need some new Brain Force.
I'm pretty sure the reason he developed those pickups is because
He wanted to go back to using passives
He now tunes down a whole step due to his voice getting weaker, which the lower tuning affects the tone of his guitars
I can assume this can handle lower tunings while still retaining the tone he's been using for years.
Here's the loaded question: "Was his tone ever good to begin with?"
I think not, they are one of the bands where the production had to be bass light (bass, kicks) not to infringe on the weak whiny voice. Kinda like why King Diamond, Children of Bodom have paper thin productions.
His actives actually sounded good. Our other guitarist had them installed in his Jackson V.
They were noisier than usual but you didn't need overdrive to play and it was instant Megadeth circa "Countdown...".
from that video it looks like mustaines face has gone the way of mickey rourke's....
Was about to say, he hasn't aged well at all haha!
There's a dirty part of me that will probably buy these as Rust in Piece is still one of my favourite albums to both listen to and play along!
Nah, it still has an A5. I have a slightly underwound JB from the same era (it's only 14.4K!) and it sounds like the Mustaines have a similar EQ curve. It'll probably sound pretty good in that case, though the tone in the video is crap.
Or, you know, just buy a Wolfetone Timber Wolfe, since it's pretty much exactly what you're talking about.
