|When we decided to make the AttackBucker
available to the GuitarAttack faithful, we knew it was cool. However,
the review we got from our friend Jim Hintzen made us proud. Here it
is, like we got it:
Your Pickup Saved My Guitarís Life!
I have a Custom-built Swamp Ash Dinky replica. Itís a beautiful guitar, but
I could not get the sounds I wanted out of it. I had already tried three
different pickups in this guitar with no luck. I had the AttackBucker in the
neck slot, which sounded good. But this guitar has a massive bottom-end, and
I couldnít get a clear, sharp bite out of the low-E string to save my life.
Then I tried the AttackBucker in the bridge postion. Initially, I was
unsure, because itís not a high-output, and thatís what I would normally use
in an 80ís type shred machine like this. But it totally brought this guitar
to life. By playing with the pickup height and with the adjustment screws, I
sharpened up the soggy bottom end and also got a fantastic, thick sound
sound from the D, G, B, and E strings Ė something Iíve never really gotten
This pickup is throwing out pinch harmonics all over the place. It has a
great, full-bodied tone, and itís LOUD! Through a high-gain Marshall, it
leaps out at you and barks like a killer Rottweiler!
P.S. According to the ancient Japanese tradition, now that you've saved my
guitar's life, you are responsible for that life. To that end, I think you
are now obligated to make a neck pickup for my guitar as nice as the
AttackBucker. And also a really high-output version of the AB Bridge for my
new Custom Lynch Bengal.
Domo Morigato, Sensei John!
Thanks, Jim...we appreciate
the kind words!
