    Yeah, it could be that too....depends on what kind of mids he likes. The Super3 has like "middle-mids" while the JB has real high upper mids.

      The super D is super hot! Its the second hottest pup next to the X2N. It is a big sounding pup but I wouldnt say it is mid heavy. The CC is much more middy.
      Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

          Basically, what I want is a tone most identical to Slayer. What I meant by "low bass" was, I want more mids than bass. I dont like my sound to be drowned out by bass like with the Invader. I just want it to sound as DEATH-metal as possible

            I have some songs using the Super Distortion. Click on My Latest Music in my sig. I believe I used it on "The Excitement!" and "Battletoads Theme". Hope that helps! Super Distortion is one of my favorite pickups. Definitely my fav for 80's style lead work.

                That pickup sucks to be honest. I just heard one the other day...completely useless for anything but extreme metal.

                I'd take almost any Dimarzio over that thing.

                  C'mon JSS! Saying "Dont get Dimarzio" just because you personaly hate them isnt really objective...

                    EMG 85/81 into a Marshall JCM800

                    A Super Distortion would also cut it though.

                      +1 for the Super3 if you want mids mids and more mids without flabby bass. It's basically a normal Super Distortion with the bass and treble rolled back and the mids on steroids.

                      Good luck,
