I put an Alumitone neck and deathbar bridge in my JEM and it was the worst guitar decision I've ever made. They sound absolutely terrible. They are so bad I had to check with a tech and make sure they were wired properly.
I loved the xbars i had in my old strandberg. Best cleans i've ever had and also takes gain like crazy. Super versatile but that fizz is definitely present.
Which seemed better on note definition and ''mellowness'' ?
I particulary prefer softer sounds ,like using neck pickup for leads for a more sweet and full sound.
I suppose the death bar has a higher output and more midrange i am right?
Probably going for 2 x bars it seems.
