The Pickup Place / What pickup is this?
« Last post by jeppespelar on Today at 05:20:54 am »
Hi guys!

This is an old pickup I got from my father. He doesen't remember exactly when he bought it but thinks it might have been the late seventies. Can you guys help me ID it? Would be fun to know what I'm using!

My best guess is Super Distortion, soley based on popularity at the time. Don't think my father ever was an "against the grain" kinda guy you know...  ;D

Anyhow, all help appriciated!

Any of you have played with those Dimarzio 59's?
There are not even videos from them on Youtube!

The Trading Post / WTB: F-Spaced Super Distortion + PAF Pro (Nickel Covered)

Hi everyone! Is been a while since I last logged-in here!
I have been a Seymour Duncan pickup user since 2012, and I believe it's the time to ''jump ship'' into Dimarzio. I haven't listened to anything I really liked for my Gibson Flying V and after a great experience with the Super Distortion, I wanted one.

The time has come. Before purchasing new/''full price'', I would like to know if any of you have one + a PAF Pro for my Flying V.

I would prefer both to be Nickel Covered. Second option would be zebra, but really would like to have them on nickel.  Please let me know!

Hey man...I just put a Super D in my LP's amazing! I'm running it through a Splawn Quickrod and I couldn't be happier with it. I paired it with the PAF 36th Anny and they work great together. The 36th gets quite a bit of low end so depending on the acoustic properties of your particular guitar that pickup or maybe the PAF Pro/Joe would be great.
I suppose that all depends on what type of tone you're going for...??

I think being able to play certain chords and having it sound clean and clear har more to do with the amp and/or the pedals.

But the Steves Special is a good suggestion for chordplaying since its not congested (ie lacks) in the mids. However thats all it's good for IMO. Hate it for leadplaying but then I'm a midrange junkie.
I hear all that.  I play more low gain than saturated so the SS makes sense, but yes it's very flat.

I'm leaning towards trying more of the newer neck pups in the bridge, which was DiMarzio Tech's suggestion.  Transition neck, Liquifire (amazing bridge pickup, though can be a bit flat/sterile like the SS), Gravity Storm neck.  I need an endorsement so I can try em all:)

I'd wager to say that the Chopper will be a way WAY better fit in the neck than the SD-S. Even better than the Chopper is the Satch Track, it's the best railbucker I've ever heard and I've tried all of em.
