    I hate ceramic in full size buckers.

    People seem to hate compression, but I love it. I love the feeling of a huge signal slamming the amp. I love the gritty, metallic upper mids and complex harmonics.

      That's what I like about the EMG 81
      Epiphone Les Paul Tbte Plus (SD custom shop humbucker & SH2b neck)

        And so the Distortion or X2N just doesn't do that for you.

          People seem to find them too boomy and lacking character. My tech thought the same, until he heard mine.

            Put alnico in em. I love the profile of the Distortion.

              I honestly haven't hated a single pickup that is within the realm of my general preference, that being big mags and ceramic or a5. Metal models of all various concoctions.
              Actually I basically love them all for their own specific applications/guitars. JB, ToneZone, Invader, X2N, Dime, Nazgul, Warpig, 81,85 ect..

                I hate the JB and just about all stock Gibson HBs (57s are at least useable).

                  As far as non-Duncans go, I love the '57 Classics.
                  Not a fan of EMG's at all.

                    JB in the wrong guitar/ JB in the right guitar.

                      PRS ”s” series neck pickups. My general feeling is that nobody loves these.
                      I have a Zach Myers with stock 245 s pickups and a 24 se with 85/15 s pickups. I LOVE the neck pos in each guitar. The bridge positions I’m kind of lukewarm on.

                        I dont really like the Duncan Distortion. To me it comes across as blind aggression without irony or refinement.

                        I really like the 500T in a Les Paul. It is just the right amount of punch and cut without being fizzy or grainy. You can play at lower gain and sound like you mean it.
                        Nobody knows, dude. Nobody knows.

                          That's exactly what I like most about the Distortion.

                            It's pretty with alnico.

                                I would recommend A2, A3, UOA5, A5, or A6.
