    <Jamesbondvoice> The names Kerr, Whan Kerr... </Jamesbondvoice> :ninja:

    Haha, not really! Just a silly name.

    I've been attempting to play the guitar for the last 20ish years, don't profess to be any good what so ever but I enjoy what I'm doing. Recently started having a go at recording via a start up home studio kit. Into everything from Rock to metal, currently listing to the Dead Daisies and the new roses. Love finding new music and bands I haven't heard.

    Current guitars are

    Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy plus - about to have EMGs replaced with a set of Seymour Duncan Alnico's
    Fender Telecaster standard
    Maverick hardtale superstrat - modified with a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge

    Anyway. Hello.

    Welcome! Which Seymour Duncan pickups have you selected for your Epiphone? What was your rationale for selecting them?

    I've gone for the SD Alnico II Pro Slash, I believe these are wound more than the non signature. I love the EMGs but they are just too fierce for the sound I'm going for right now. After watch countless YouTube videos and research around the net, The SDs seem the perfect choice.

    The Slash signature versions have more mids and a bit more output.

    Yep, but not as much as the EMGs, plus it's cheaper for me to modify the guitar than buy another.

    When I changed over the stock pickup in the Maverick over to a JB, the guitar went from ok to fallen in love with the sound, I'm able to get Jerry Cantrell tones out of it quite easy with my Friedman pedal.

    I'll see what I can do for you. ;)

    Here are the guitars the Maverick, Telecaster and the pride of the collection, the Les Paul. The Maverick picture was before I fitted a JB but had a Dimebucker fitted.
