    i would think a screaming demon would be trebley as hell in a strat....i would go for the jb....which would also be trebly but not nearly as much. I THINK!

      The JB is definitely the way to go for 80's metal tones in a strat. Having said that, I have a screamin demon in my Ovation Strat. The guys that you mentioned used JB's at one time in their guitars.

        I believe Lynch used a DD.

          JB is great for 80's metal.

            I play a lot of lead get the JB but if you're more into a thicker rhythm tone the the Demon.

            Both PUs are faily versatile but the Demon is obviously less of a stretch from the norm.

            During the '80s I played anything from Venom to GnR to LedZep with a Demon. The Demon is simply a no nonsense PU.

                Both are great, both will cover a lot of the same ground just in a somewhat different way.
