  • Got a crazy pup idea.

    My bridge is HOT. 22k Hot. My neck it medium output, around 7k. So, since the L-500XL is so hot, and the Full shred neck isnt, what do you think about putting a Full Shred bridge in the neck, balancing it out more since its 14k?

    Man, you like hot pickups! The good thing about a hot neck pup is that it sings nicely and allows fast runs to sound smoother, but it really turns into mud for everything else.
    I guess you have a choice....you could either add a 9-14K neck pickup, or you could take out the 22K bridge, and come down to a more reasonable 12-16K. Personally, I'd do that. If your amp can have plenty of gain, your notes will sound bigger and more clear than by pushing it with super hot pickups. Just my 2 cents.

    PS. and I agree about your theory of right handed picking technique. The adverse effects of picking up bad habits are not yet apparent to them. Not to mention looking amateur! LOL

      I thought the L-500XL was around 12K?

        Have to agree. 22K is huge!

          i used to use a jb in the neck and i thought it was killer, give it a try i think the fs bridge might be a very cool neck pup

            Im not sure about the 22K, but It is 9.2 Henries. (whatever that means )

              It probably isn't EXTREMELY high output if it's only 9 Henries, but it's defienetly up there. Inductance (measured in Henries) is kinda like how much voltage (which is tranlated to loudness) a magnetic field generates. I think I recall a JB would have a little more than 8, for comparison. You have to consider the rather small and weak magnetic field of the pickup, it definetely controls the output. I bet it uses like 10,000 winds of 44 AWG a coil, like a really overwound JB. You might be just fine with a FS neck. Remember Dimebag Darrell uses a similar pickup *cough cough* in the bridge of his guitar with a '59 in the neck. But yeah, I bet a JB would work well with it!
