The pickups are stock Peavey, but are listed as a high output. They have a very smooth and creamy tone like an old PAF. My pickups of choice are Duncan Distortions, good full frequency and high output without being over the top. I have also used Dimarzio Tone Zones and the Fred model, but only becaue they were cheaper than the Duncans and I was changing out 4 pickups at once in 2 guitars.But I haven`t ever used the Screamin Demon, not that I don`t want to, just haven`t.
I just couldn`t come to terms with the EMG`s in the Jackson, not bright enough. They had such a high signal strength and absolutely no noise at all, just to dark for what I wanted.
that top is a Flamed maple with a translucent Amber top, just like EVH used for years. This is sort of my tribute to him in a round about way. The neck is unfinished spalted maple, and a smaller radius than the Jackson, but sweet none the less.

Yea, the truss rod  adjustment is like a large thumb wheel, but it has holes for this small rod you insert to turn it. This thing plays so sweet, so far I can`t seem to put it down.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by SDBinNY from Sunday, January 24, 2010 7:41:05 PM)

The top on that thing is gorgeous !!! I love how they did the truss rod on that one, no need to play with covers or take the neck off to adjust it...

I hope this one gets the tone you are after, I know you had a lot of issues with the Jackson. The guy I sold my KV2 to is also having the same dilema, but he would have to dremel the routes out for the pickups he wants in it..

That is the new JS32T, about time they put the shark fins on those, and they added a gig bag.. Good deal Joe..

 Just negotiated a trade, giving up one of my Charvels for a Peavey Transtube Supreme head. Making the swap tomorrow, have looked for one of these for a long time, finally got one locally...

I know between your GST & PST  your taxes are much higher than ours. But right now the dollar value is almost equal.   Either way, if you`ve got the cash to spare, it`s probably a good investment.

Canadian.

And yes it still makes a big difference.

For example go on the Apple website and look at the prices between the products.

www.apple.com/us

www.apple.com/ca

They dont even show you the prices for the iPhone in Canada!

Joe
The original Dual Rectifiers were only two channel, so that is a farely rare find, I`d work on them on that price though, seems a bit steep for an amp that`s 20 years old, maybe around 1000.00, now is that Canadian or American dollars? Shouldn`t matter since the Canadian dollar is almost equal to ours now.

Funny you mention that.

I just ordered the new JS320t whatever the fuck its called.

The new JS series King V. The grey one on there site.

I think its gonna be worth it man. It was only like 358$. Jackson is always fucking great.

I ALSO found what I THINK is a first run 2 channel Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier at the instrument store.......

Does anyone know how rare those are and how amazing they are....? Its only like 1,500$.......

okay thnx for the advice on the spider amps obviously not a very good idea!
I just noticed Jackson have revamped their entry line(JS Series). Ive always wanted a king V and am now wondering if it would be worth it to get one(JS32T KingV) and switch out the pickups for duncans. Opinions??

Hey man its been a while. Still up for some FPS action on Steam haha? :D

But yeah the Spider amps are a great starter amp. Mainly because you can get that average metal tone out of it, and it has all the effects pedals built right into it. With hundreds of presets to tweak.

Its ALSO a good thing, because you learn that it sucks ass, and learn very quickly that basically everything has better tone haha.

i agree. my dad has a spider 2. they try too hard to make their amps fit dumb needs in an amp. the tone is that of ur average active pickup. no bass. at least this one has barely any

I have down loaded the software onto the computer. That is where i am at.

Peavey has just released a 50 watt , single 12 combo of the 6505. they seem to be going for around 6 bills. Does anyone think that is a good price?
[Guitardude.] Friday, January 08, 2010 6:53:27 PM 
Wah pedals can be a curse or a blessing, but if it is opening up new avenues to your playing, by all means wail away !
The JB is a good choice , versatile pickup for all styles of music.

I have not been on in a really long time so i just felt i should share a few things that i have accquired. I got an SD JB pickup put in the bridge position on my Ibanez Jumpstart beginner guitar. I also got the FBV shortboard footswitch for my Spider 3. everything is sounding pretty good and i'm really loving the expression Wah pedal that is included on the footswitch. It is my first time using/ owning a wah pedal and it has really opened new doors for my playing.

[Guitardude.] Thursday, December 24, 2009 5:04:09 PM 
Joe
Both amps are Rectifier amps, meaning that they use a recitifier tube to control voltage going into the power amp tubes. This gives the tone a somewhat "spongy"  sound.Which is a sought after tone., it gives a type of natural compression and doesn`t allow the tubes to quite peak as they would if being run by a "Silicon Diode"  aka a capacitor, to control the voltage .
The Silicon Diode will give a sharper tone to the tubes as it`s power reserve is much higher and will not peak like a rectifier will.well, atleast within reasonable limits anyway.
The Road King gives you a choice between the Rectifier or the Silicon diode, the Dual or Triple Rectifier`s don`t. So  it depends on what you`re looking for tone wise....Thick and Spongy (Rectifier) or Sharp and slightly more articulate (Silicon Diode)
Note worthy is that most of the influential recordings were used using a "Rectifier" type of amp whether it be an old Marshall, Mesa Boogie or an old Fender.

I like the Duncan Distortion, The Dimebucker, and the Bare Knuckles are cool as hell if you have the budget.  The Jackson J90C is a good one (if you can find one), and as for DiMarzio, I haven't used them in over 20 years. I has SD's in my 76 Les Paul, and my Dad has X2N's in his, but I had a hell of a time getting any mids out of the SD's and the X2N's weren't too bad but I could hardly play his set up anyway....

Man, Joe.. I hope you don't have any problems switching back, filing the nut may change your intonation, and having strings that heavy under that tension may also bow your neck, so DO NOT try to get it in standard tuning.

The next time they are out of your brand of strings, try something with the same string gauge as you normally use. If you are not sure what they are, cut the string size guide out of the package and keep it in your wallet.

I work in the steel industry, my friend... And we have a little saying that you should probably remember (this is something that fits all too much of life today)....

Those who CAN, do.... Those who CAN'T, manage....

As long as the strings are not bronze, you can use any other type in a pinch, as long as you match your sizes properly....

That is a preference that most guitarists choose. Glenn and KK also use "active" pickups in their guitars, and some of the personality of the pickups are lost when using a wireless. I have a guitar with the same pickups, and there is a slight difference when switching between corded or wireless.

There are guitarists out there (Glenn and KK included) that have stuff they no longer use connected in their systems, but they don't dare remove it for fear of altering their sound. A guitar player's quest for tone is eternal, so if you like what you have, you leave it alone.

Personally, I go wireless, because a 20 foot cord can make one MISERABLE pretzel knot.....
