The fact that many whom use the Invader tune down, way down, may have something to do with it.

I'm loving the JB in my Schecter c-1 Classic, however.

Yeah they can get a bit muddy but thats why you tweak the EQ.

EMG 81/85 I also like the "dry" sound of the stock pick ups in older Jackson and Charvel guitars.

They're very good, sort of an all-purposes humbucker. It performs equally well in all styles of music, I believe.

My Dimarzio Tone Zone. Great fucking tone.

My Steve Special sounds fucking great on clean, too.

I certainly wouldnt call anything I dislike awesome now would I?

Invaders are shir though, Sure if you like sludgy plam muting goodness then buy one, and cut your mid while your at it.

I perfer the rely on my amp for my gain, not the pickup. A clear pickup into a high gain amp =

I'm not sure, but I'd assume some are wound better than others and better magnets, better wiring, etc.

My favourite pick up would have to be "Gee, that's a nice set of legs, what time do they open?"

But seriously, I love my EMG 81's. I'd like to try out any Dimarzios, never used them before.

I have an JB humbucker in my only guitar, wich is an h-s-s strat. It doesn't sound bad, but not very good either, probably its the tonewoods in my guitar. I think its body is made of alder.
I'm planning to buy a new guitar with an mahagony or basswood body in the near future and take the jb out, and put it with an '59 in the new one.

Can annyone suggest an replacment pickup for the strat? I'm guessing i should get an hot pickup to cover up the sucky tonewoods, maybe an X2N or Invader. What should I combine it with in the bridge (and middle) position?
