The Pickup Place / Rare pickups or guitar models?
« Last post by Lazy808 on August 08, 2019, 03:49:28 am »
I am possibly looking at creating a website that sells rare or unique pickups . I was wondering what pickups are hot at the moment or items people are looking for . Thanks !

That sounds good! Thatís the second recommendation for the breed I have heard. Looks like itís out of production though. Any second recommendations?

I'm a pretty die-hard prog guy, but I'm not really into Tool. I think MJK is his band name, and while Justin Chancellor is a killer bassist, their songs have never really done it for me. I don't know, just kinda repetitive. The fans, though, absolutely killed it for me. I don't know if any of you are into indie games, but it's a similar thing to Undertale: it's not bad, and while it's not my cup of tea I'm interested in trying it, but the fanbase is so rabid and "this is literally better than sliced bread you uncouth moron" that I'm pretty happy staying at a 10-foot pole's distance.
Happy people writing articles about Tool don't have to put ". . .their latest album, 2006's Lateralus. . ." in said articles anymore though.

I like both, but for different reasons.
The Tele IMO is an incredible songwriting tool, especially if you get one without extra switching and stuff, because it gives you a good but simple palette of sounds that work well in basically every context without having too much stuff and giving you option paralysis.
The Strat on the other hand is more of a performance player, for when you have music that you want to pick up and play, because (IMO) it's a much more comfortable guitar that really just gets out of your way (especially the Superstrats and variants thereof I'm a big fan of). That's not to say a Tele is uncomfortable or hard to play, it's just that the slab body with no contouring and the different balance make it a lot more utilitarian.
In your shoes? I'd grab a higher-end Tele (the simpler design I think benefits from higher-quality woods and hardware a lot, and you'll be missing out in a cheaper model - American Standards are a pretty great model to go for) to use as-is and once I got comfortable with using it and wanted something a little different, I'd put together my own Strat. A good partscaster can be an incredibly versatile and personal instrument, and personally I think the Strat makes the best partscaster due to the sheer mountain of stuff you can put in them.
I will say too if you're an acoustic player you could pick up a used Am Standard and fit it with a piezo pickup to bridge the gap while you get used to it. I know you can find a few piezo-equipped Teles on Reverb pretty regularly.

Breed neck and bridge, with something like an FS-1 or SDS-1 (I'd go with the SDS personally) in the middle. The Breed set was made for Steve Vai because he wanted his JEM to sound like a Les Paul - the JEM is alder, generally, and otherwise basically the same spec as any RG, so you should get similar results with your 670. The SDS-1 is designed to be something P90-like in a Strat-sized housing, so in the middle position on its own or split with the Breed set, it should give you some cool sounds in the vein of what you're looking for.
I will say that these pickups, especially the Breed set, is a little more "modern"-voiced, but aimed at more "vintage" sounds, so I think it should work for you pretty well.

Hello! I am sure this is a tired subject but I want some advice for my light ash rg670. Any suggestions for pickup replacement? Itís an hsh model in a light ash body. I am looking for more of a les paul thicker sound more vintage style. I am not so much into super high gain shredding but do like some guys. I am more into di Meola, schenker, gambale, gary Moore, and thin Lizzy style 70ís rock. Any suggestions besides buying a les paul? Lol. It has v7 and v8 pickups now . Thanks!
