    I'm practicing more everyday. I don't have time for a band at the moment, maybe one day when my kids have moved on.

    Heavy metal thunda!

    By Dustin Sharp _

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set:

    I have 5 guitars, one of those being the Mustaine Zero Angel that comes with passive pickups, I dropped these in and the difference was night and day! Of all my guitars, these pickups are my favorite, with distortion they cut through in an awesome way, and they are clear and ringy on the clean channel. I have played with the Zakk Wylde guitar that has the EMG 81/85 combo, and I MUCH prefer these. EMGs sound flat, where these sound like exactly what they are, amplified classic pickups(they are based on the Duncan JB pup).

    Made my guitar sound better

    By Ratheesh Jagadish

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set:

    Was hoping it would sound as mentioned in other reviews and it did not disappoint. Cost me as much as my guitar to buy and install the pickups but I ain't complaining.

    WOW

    By LeMan

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set:

    These pickups have a punch, a STRONG PUNCH. On there web site samples, they don't have a clean setting... So, That might be a bad thing. Very high output, probably highest I've heard. Just get a Dimebucker, there a lot more full. From what I've heard, not much clean... If you're a metal-head, go ahead!

    Merely Okay...

    By Jigsaw

    from Oak Forest, IL

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set:

    When I bought these I thought they would be great seeing as Dave Mustaine uses them in his new Dean, but I was wrong they are too sterile sounding they have no punch. I much prefer the sound of EMG 81 and 60's the pickups are far to expensive to warrant a buy.

    They Sound Good

    By Mike

    from Canada

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set:

    They sound good, but they seem pretty expensive for non-custom shop duncans. But what do I know, are actives usually this expensive or what? They are very clean, even with high gain. Almost.. too clean for my tastes, but they are good pickups. Great for metal but not that versatile. I mean you CAN play blues with them for example, but it just won't be the same as a passive PAF or whatnot.
