    Style of Music: Metal.

    Experience: Playing guitar for 20 years

    "Seymour Duncan Invader humbucker"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    FAT. LOUD. WARM. I installed this in a 1991 Jackson King V pro, in which the original Jackson pickup had a bit of tarnish on the posts, and had always sounded thin to me. When I climb the neck and solo now, the notes are much warmer. They are still clear, so I didn't trade thinness for mud. Good, clean, clear, warm tone. Great metal tone.
    Ease of Use:
    If you know how to use a soldering iron, it couldn't be easier. Detailed instructions included.
    Quality:
    Well, the post screws are ceramic rather than metal, so tarnishing isn't an issue.
    Value:
    $80 is a fair price i suppose. You can spend a lot more on other pickups, you can also spend less. Bottom line is I'm happy.
    The Wow Factor:
    WOW was when I plugged in my guitar and cranked it up. It was a very noticeable difference. I was worried that changing pickups was a tone-junky thing that you needed golden-ears to really appreciate. I assure you the difference was not subtle.
    Overall:
    It did what I expected it to do. Strip away all the marketing language and hyperbole, and what's left is a humbucker that took a somewhat thing-sounding guitar and warmed it up quite a bit.

    Style of Music: metal / shred

    Experience: in a band / solo musician

    "want fat bassy tonal sound quality ? look no further im serious"

    Sound:
    if tou play metal and like say metallica and shred and want a kick in the nuts of power and bassy tone. its sound quality is good but for super shred it could be better,it responds well to messy say droped "d" metal riffs,this prodouct meets more than expeceted standard.its brill for my styles of heavy music on a normal 100watt amp it will set u back in your chair .. in a stack amp .. i tried mine on a behringer stack and i thought i was going to be thrown off stage. i recommend bridge position and 2 singal coil pickups for a wider range of tone this pick up performs if u like distortion and killer sounds its good with the bass up on an amp its unreal i play a jackson dk2 firestorm with the invader in bridge positionsounds intence .. i would keep this product the same but for shred solos id try to add a bit more to it .. not really sure what tho
    Feature:
    i feel it is a good product but yet again with shred soloing. .. could be more clean
    Ease of Use:
    it its easy to use but i found installing it a bugger but yet again i am only 15
    Quality:
    i think it looks great kind of like its going to attack you i thinkits reliable i mean i trust mine ive played a few gigs and had tonnes of hour long practices using it and it just keeps on going
    Manufacturer Support:
    i know a few people that have contact seymore duncan and a friend of mine works as a guitar engineer and replaces pickups etcetc ..they all said its a great company,.. ive had no problems
    Value:
    good value for money on this product its worth the money
    The Wow Factor:
    i have got to admit it looks well dirffrent but hey its wickedly cool and diffrent is good in my opinion
    Overall:
    i think i will be keeping this product for a while now as i fell it dose the job well and for the price i wouldnt spend anymore money on anything else i chose it for the metal and fat chunky tone that i need for my band and my agressive playing styles

    "its the chocolate chip pancake of pickups"

    Sound:
    the sound of this is soooo wicked. it has an insane mid-tone and it really rocks. i play lots of punk, and hardcore, and i find that it is perfect.. it just rips with solos too
    Quality:
    seymour duncan is THE best company when dealing with electric guitar pickups... no competition.
    Manufacturer Support:
    i have contacted them once on regards to shipping time, they were quite polite, and had very good answers to my questions. No such things for repairs, unless ur a moron
    Value:
    no doubt about it.... buy the invader with custom colors, i have a blue guitar, and i have a yellow/blue combo, it looks rad....
    The Wow Factor:
    even if you dont use it 100 percent of the time... it looks rad, and just knowing you have it, means ur totally bad A**
    Overall:
    its wicked, thats all there is to say
