For years Dave Mustaine, the legendary charismatic leader of Megadeth, relied on our passive JB and Jazz humbuckers to record some of the most influential riffs in the history of Metal. But like most extreme players, eventually you just want more. We worked with Dave to voice a set of high output active humbucker pickups that deliver the distinct tonal character of the JB/Jazz combo, but with extra ferocity and gain.

The Dave Mustaine LiveWire set is perfect for players who want to try active pickups without drastically veering away from the tone of the passive pickups theyve become accustomed to. The smooth upper midrange crunch of the JB and the articulate warmth and clarity of the Jazz neck remain intact while the custom tuned active preamp delivers the increased output and touch sensitivity only an active pickup can provide.

A unique covered passive humbucker look embossed with Daves signature also ensures these will look and sound great in any guitar. We include pots, mounting hardware, capacitors (active pickups require a special cap value), battery clip, stereo output jack, and wire needed to install these high output humbucker pickups.

Seymour Duncan pickups never stop amazing me! i already have a set of AHB-1's in my Jackson V and i love them. But a friend of mine has a Dean signature Mustaine V loaded with these puppies and after i played his guitar once i had to have these pickups in one of my guitars. the preamp built into the pickup provides the benefits of an active pickup without sacrificing the passive organic Duncan tone. Great for classic rock, thrash, old school metal, black metal and other heavy rock and aggressive music. so clear,concise and full of punch! The active preamp allows higher gain and more output without sacrificing the tone, response and feel. The resonance of the bridge and neck pickup is matched with the SH-4 JB and SH-2n Jazz Model. thats what the duncan specs say
