  • Jackson JS-32 King V Pickups

    First post!!
    I'm considering a new bridge pickup for my JS-32 King V. I'm trying to decide between a JB, Duncan Distortion, and an Invader. They're pretty hot for stock pickups, I even saw one YouTube video where a guy said they had the same output as Invaders. I recently bought a Jackson Monarkh Pro with Blackouts installed from the factory. The Blackouts blow the stock Jacksons out of the water but they're active.
    If the stock jacksons supposedly have the same output as invaders, will I even notice a difference?

    Welcome to the forum!

    A pickup's tone is a lot more than the output. The biggest difference between the 3 you mentioned is the EQ: JB is a lot of mids, Distortion is treble and tight bass, and an Invader is almost all mids. All of them have a lot of output. The biggest decision is deciding on what EQ you want or your guitar needs.

      Welcome to the site. Of those 3, Id go Distortion hands down. Ive tried the Invader, ehhhh and JB has that big upper mid hump thats not pleasing to my ears. I have a DD in one guitar now and had one in another guitar yrs ago and loved it. So far its been my fave pickup Ive tried.

        Okay, sounds like a Duncan Distortion Trembucker Zebra is what I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestions and feedback.

          If your current pickups are black/white zebra and you're trying to match them, be careful when ordering "zebra" as the standard is black/cream, not black/white.

          If you can't find what you need, find BanjoMikez on eBay, he'll order one. So can companies like Sweetwater, etc.

            Can Seymour Duncan make a black/creme now?

              What? They have always made black/cream. Only double-cream was an issue.

                So I basically need the pickup out of this guitar. Do I just call the sales rep that I normally deal with at Sweetwater?

                  From the photo that doesn't look like black and cream on the pickups. That looks like black and white.
                  Which should be no problem for the Custom shop. Possibly even a shop floor custom.

                    This the guitar I have. Im looking for black and white not black and cream. What does the "Custom Shop" version of this pickup run?

                      Not sure, but it shouldn't be a full price custom pickup. A Black and White Distortion Trembucker should be a Shop Floor Custom?
                      Can anyone help us out?

                        You want "Shop Floor Custom", not Custom Shop. It's a very small upcharge for the color change. Contact Sweetwater or BanjoMikez on eBay like I said. They'll take care of you

                              I bought "apple green" or whatever the heck color that '80s green is from some ebay seller a few years ago. Same price, i think that you just have to either buy from a seller who has a stock of that particular color, or direct from Duncan. price isn't even any higher, i think, just the wait time by a negligible amount. Black and white (not creme) I'd think should be easy enough.

                              Here's the real question: there's zebra and reverse zebra. Which one is it that has the screw white and the slug black?
