Huginn – Pickup Choice

P1010727         P1010728

For the Bridge I have chosen to utilise an EMG HZ4 just like Muninn. I found this pickup to give a very good ‘hot’ metal sound when driven hard.

As Huginn will have a brighter and more mellow finish with the gold hardware and ashen-grey finish, i wanted a little more warmth and tone in the neck position, whilst keeping the raw aggression of an over-wound humbucker. In this case I have opted for a custom Alan Entwistle ‘Darkstar’. This has an open-coil appearance by default, so i will be adding a plastic covering to give it more of an EMG vibe for symmetry.
