I hope they aren't going cheap, because I do like Schecter.
    I'll keep you posted on what my friend decides. Don't get me wrong, the duncan designs aren't crap. But they don't do so well under med to high gain. My friend is pretty ecclectic with his playing so he needs a very versitle set of pups.

    I really like the Seth Lovers for natural classic rock tones. I have not tried them in a semi-hollow guitar, but I have heard lots of positive reviews.
    I don't have problems with feedback from my SLs, but I don't normally play super loud, or with a bunch of gain.

    Feedback might be an issue if you run a lot of gain at high volumes with unpotted pickups. That being said, I was usually able to controll the feedback coming from my Sheraton and use it to sustain a note or get a different sound.

    I really like the Seth's in a semi. Another opttion (if you want more cut) would be the Pg set. They work wonders in my Paul, though Ive never tried them in a semi.
