Well then i would say either Cbomb, Alnico Nailbomb or the Cold Sweat. The Cold Sweat will give you more bite while still having enough balls, the Nailboms will be not as 'bitey' but still give you plenty of chunk :-)

I'm not looking for more bite, so the C-bomb is what I'm going to start with, though I like the sound of the Alnico Bomb too........... But I have also been made aware of the WCR Iron Man, and heard a few clips and have been told that it eats the C-bomb for breakfast.....  :tfrag:

Doubtful, for there isn't a superior pickup.  Its only a matter of personal taste.  BK's are good, Duncans are good, ect.  Its a matter of personal taste.  They are all awesome, just having different characteristics.  To say that one pickup will eat another for break-fast is a biased statement. 

Any proper guitar, with the right set up, quality pickups, and a good rig will destroy in the right hands, not matter what.

No, but most of his other offerings. Except for the Crossroads they all had a distinctive midrange hump (Darkburst, Godwood, Fillmore, Herc) - like the Duane Allman tone built in permanently. Which is good, except when you want to play something different. The most obvious difference between the models was the output level. So unless the Iron Man is voiced differently than his mainstay of pickups I believe the C-Bomb would be better suited to metal.

Interesting.... I wonder how they all have a similar midrange character when presumably they use different magnets, wire etc?  Unless they're all basically over- or under-wound versions of the same pickup.

As far as I know, Darkbursts and the older Goodwoods used the same wire whereas Fillmore and Herc (which is no longer offered) have/had thinner wire, as does the newer Godwood. But this is only from forum descriptions - I have not asked Jim personally. But my description of their tones is from personal experience, and in more than just one guitar each.

Cheers Stephan

I had a strong GAS for the godwood... then I ordered my custom riff raff and forgot about it completely PDT_003
I also bought a WCR herc for $50 on ebay, but got scammed by some lying studio douchebag :grrr:
Riff Raff, Mules, Black Dog, VHII's, Cold Sweat
