    Herp derp, a little panama cover with the ever so interesting J-50BC JE-1000 setup. I really love the crunch and clarity this setup has :D

    Thanks man :D its a really great tone, even for things not omg Alexi like as you hear ;)

    haha, it really depends on the guitar. My V in that has a body from an old Epiphone V - it's some kind of low grade poplar but still sounds decent imo

    on pickups..well it really depends but you can get a lot of great pickups. I prefer the j-50bc and JE-1000 for me but sadly the price of the j-50bc has skyrocketed on ebay. Think I bought mine for 30 quid and made the JE-1000 myself so that was cheap enough :p

    But really besides that, the best pups I've heard (and Ive had like 15 different in diff guitars and tried quite a few on friends) are surely Bare Knuckles. Just bang for your bucks, you know that with those its def. not the pickups that are lacking!

    Look into th Rebel Yell, damn that one has some crunch and sweet tone.

    Can anyone please post a wiring diagram or a photo of a installed j-80? The same stuff of a j-50bc would do as well I think.

    Suggest me a guitar like this that's got good playability and metal + clear sound. I've got bored with my RR24m somehow (maybe if it was the yellow one with ebony it would be a different thing). I've figured I won't be a good guitar player and I don't need the whammy bar for anything. I just want a guitar that's got good sounds for different types of metal, good playability and looks.

    I tried this, it's a very good guitar, only problem is you can't quite reach the highest notes like in the RR24.

    I believe 50K would be for active circuit(JE-1000 or whatever its called is active circuit, amirite?). Traditionally passive hums in a passive circuit use 500K pots

    Well... That's why I'm not modifying my current guitar :lol:
    I have always wanted something like the J-50BC, yet not an actual J-50BC (for a few reasons). EMG's are not my thing, and I also visually dislike "naked" pickups.. Like, I'd put a cover on any pickup, so it could look more like an active while still being passive. Which is another reason I love the J-50BC.
    I checked out Bare Knuckles' site a few months ago and wasn't convinced by any of the sound clips, but am going to hear them again anyway. I'm still looking for something like the J-50BC :p (Edit: I think I just fell in love with the bridge ceramic Nailbomb).

    Oh, by the way, does anybody know about a font based on (or that was used in) the WildChild sticker? I wanted to place that sticker on my future guitar but now I've changed my mind and want different text on it... However, no font seems to fit it well and I'd like to try with the same kind of letters used in that sticker... Anybody?

    @Leriariairasos
    If you really want the J-50BC why dont you get one?

    Otherwise taking a PAF and swapping a ceramic magnet in might give you some of the same results, as essentially that is what the j-50bc is.
    You'd still want a boost like the je-1000 then tho, cus alone that kind of pickup sounds like ass :D

    Duncan on the dimebucker:

    available mods
    Comes in any color you want. As long as it's black.

    They be trollin at duncan

    anyways, Ive always liked the SD since the Dimebucker sometimes gets muddy. However both are kickass :p the Dimebucker looks cooler :p

    I prefer the Super Distortion, just well voiced for guitar (loads of mids, not too much treble :p)

    dammit I can't choose, I love the super distortion since I saw it on paul gilbert's guitar on intense rock II and boy that tone is AWESOME but Im not very sure wheter It'll be well suited for death metal (ive never seen metal players using super distortions ) . The dimebucker sounds very good in all metal styles AND looks cool although id like it on white or silver

    Generally a medium output pickup will have so many styles within it. Also the super distortion is pretty hot already. Its more about how you dial in the amp in the end and what kind of eq you want your pickup to have from the beginning.
    A "death metal" pickup will often be much too muddy because people think more output=more win. Then they dime the gain on their amp and get phases ad libitum :p
