      Same X Series right? They are solid; got to play one of the V Blades locally and it felt exactly the same playable, comfortable and substantial! Post a pic.

            Iceman's are cool. And it's surprising how comfortable they are in your lap when you're sittin' pickin'.

              Switched out the D-Activators for a X2N and Paf Pro combo. Sounds killer!

                Nice VBTs!

                Picked up a set of EMG James Hetfields for the ICT700. Had a set in another mahogany bodied guitar and thought they were amazing.

                  D-Activators SOLD, EMG Hetfield Set was going in but when I tried them the bridge humbucker just didn't hit the strings. Love the EMG Het Set but def Gibson/Regular Spaced Pole-Pieces. I'll save 'em for a 24 3/4 Scale Future Acquisition. In go the Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB TB Dual Adjustable Pole-Piece Black Backs with a DiMarzio 500K Push:Pull Volume to Split and a Fender TBX Tone Control!!!

                    Sounds SOOOOO MUCH BETTER with the Duncan's. Also upgraded Volume to DiMarzio 500k Push:Pull to split the HBs and the tone to a Fender TBX.



                    Apparently these pickups are overwound it a slightly different output and tone:

                    Seymour Duncan "Blackened JB" TB-4 - Overwound to 18.5K with dual rows of adjustable black nickel pole pieces and black "Seymour Duncan" logo. More growl and midrange warmth than the stock JB, but retains the expressive dynamics and incredible harmonic character of the original. Pickups were a Limited Custom Run for OEM.

                      You like the JB/Jazz set better than the D-Activators? I find the D-Activators to be very demanding pickups.

                        I do. The D-Activators were different and cool in their own niche but I like Mids and a full sound which they just didn't have IMHO. Much more versatile with the change to Jazz/JB, DiMarzio Push/Pull Volume and Fender TBX Tone. It's also pretty much the same tone as my USACG Iceman which I love.

                          what do you mean by demanding?? TBH, the only 2 dimarzios Ive ever tried that I like have been the Tone zone and the Super D. None of the others have felt right to me

                            Same here...LOVE the Tone Zone in both Maple and Rosewood Board Guitars and the Super D does pretty well overall as well as it's a "Classic" Pickup/Sound.

                              Finally got the D-Activators tuned in for a good rhythm sound. Took and scooped out the mids at about 1000hz in my Keeley modded MT-2. Perfect. Not shrill or thin or too bassy. Perfect.

                                Nice; glad you've got 'em sounding the way you want. I've got a Keeley Twilight Zone as well. Use to run it in front of my Marshall JMP 50W Combo through the Low Channel. Haven't used a pedal since I got the 5150.
