  1. That's disappointing :\ I think the thing looks awesome when it comes to almost-jag-clones. Oh well. Thanks a lot sir, I appreciate the help!

    No problem, some people like them as they do have a charm about them. I am sure you could find one on ebay or gumtree for cheap you might like them they do that low fi garage rock thing kind of well. it's depends on what your into, it's all subjective after all (for the most part).

  2. Ah I see haha.Thanks, I'll take a close look at them. A few things intrigued me. I'm not really knowledgeable about pickups, but I don't think I've seen ones like this guitar's before. And no switches on the top. Oh, and the head is natural maple color with a standard fender head shape, but the name and logo were not visible due to glare >:\ lol.

    The pickups are the only redeeming factor of these guitars, otherwise it's a cheap toy not a really a tool for crafting music. i had one like this it was so freaking rubbish. 

  3. okay, I was just wondering if there's any reason i should buy it

    Well, i would just get another duncan but this is all subjective maybe it's the pickup for you. read up on some reviews check out some youtube videos (despite the woeful sound quality and compression of those videos) then decide if it's worth it. it's really up to you. sorry i can't be of more help but that's the way of these things.

  4. I don't have too much experience with this pickup but from the limited research I've done it sounds like it does the 80's classic rock/hair metal thing very well (if you like that sterile tone) lot's of harmonic response with a high output, good for high gain stuff but to my ear not what appeals to me for a clean sound as it sounds far too compressed. what amps do you have, any more details on what you play? etc etc. 

  5. foxyloxy said it best.

     a crap guitar thru a good amp will generally be just fine, but a bad amp will always sound baaaadddddd.

    and on the same line as that, a crappy multi effects pedal will kill the sound of a good amp, take away all the clarity and.... its all rubbish.

    It's my problem with active pickups as well, no tone from the wood of the guitar. good bye soul hello generic sound.
