SD 1/4pounder noise

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by MCBTunes, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. I know they sound wicked thorugh a pick. But when they are played with fingers are they not so good? I mean, are they so hot they pick up a lot offinger scratching against the string noise?

    Just curious. I play both ways. And dont want to have to limit myself after buying the pup.
