So what, nobody got anything for xmas?I got gauged .012-.054 strings and new picks. But that's it for my guitar stuff this year.
I got some seymour duncan active blackout pickups. Probably going to pick up some random junk from guitar center later, maybe a new strap or something.
Pretty much my Birthday last year.
Anywho copy pasted from ultimate guitar forums.
So I just got back from a Guitar Center where I got a pair of Seymour Duncan Active blackouts installed. I tried em out at the amp over there, but I couldn't really make out any problems, I didn't bother to actually mess with the amps settings or anything so I thought it sounded fine. So then I get home and plug it into my amp and foot pedal and whatnot and I immediately notice that just about all of the sustain I had was gone, everything just immediately faded. I feel like most of the volume I had is also gone, the volume knob only does anything if it's on the highest setting and even then sometimes my guitar goes completely silent like it's off.
So I tried to mess around with the settings on my foot pedal, to adjust sustain and distortion, things like that. But I noticed that the sound kind of wavered as I moved the pedal around so I thought maybe the cord is just wearing out or something. I never had any problems like that with my old pickups though.
Not really sure what's going on.
