  • Great pickup for tele neck

    As reviewed by Great clean pickup on 8/16/2006

    I bought a Yamaha Pacifica 311MS (tele style, humbucker neck, single- bridge) off Ebay as a project guitar. I wanted an trandsparent orange guitar and this fit the bill. It had a Duncan Design humbucker pickup in the neck, but I was really looking for something more single-coil sounding. I almost looked past this pickup because of the name, but after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a try. It's a great pickup. Just like it says, it's very clear and clean sounding, like a tele neck pickup, but without the hum. I love it.

  • A mud free neck pickup

    As reviewed by Paris Cloyd on 8/7/2012

    I got the stock neck pickup in a Mahogany neck through guitar swapped out for the Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell. The notes sound clear, and they cut through the mix well. I highly recommend the Humbucker From Hell if note clarity is your priority. This pickup does not sound muddy at all. It is kind of like having a single coil without the hum.

  • Humbucker From Hell

    As reviewed by ARCHIE KEELE on 12/16/2011

    I love my PRS CU22 but I have never really meshed with the neck position pick up. I have tried many different types in the neck and just never found what I was looking for. I wanted a clear, non muddy sounding pick up to contrast my Super Distortion in the bridge. I use a Randall RM100 into a Marshall JCM900 1960A cab. I use a Top Boost, Plexi and a JCM800 pre amp modules with EL34 power tubes. I like a variety of jazz, blues, rock, classic rock, hard rock and metal. As with most mahogany backed, maple topped set mahogany necks this one is mud heavy when in the neck position. The pick up is installed in a Duncan Triple Shot ring to allow for custom switching (I Recommend!). This pick up has a clear, solid, balanced tone when in parallel. Switch it to the north or south coil and it sounds like a nice single coil. If you switch it into a series it becomes almost acoustic like, with chime, jingle with clear non muddy bass. With the coil cut it gives the CU a near strat qualities. I just love that! I can play a sweet clean passage on the neck and then switch to the Super D and slam a nice power chord with authority! It came with Dragon II's. I liked the bridge but I am hooked on the Super Distortion in the bridge. I tried a Vintage Bass which was ok but just wasn't "it". I also tried a P-Rail, whick is a great pick up as well but just wasn't "it" for me either. In summary: The Humbucker From Hell is one heck of a unique pick up that is also a sleeper. If you want a clear neck pick up for a mahogany body guitar that is not muddy than look no farther!
