Sure they are what Zak Wylde, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, or Toki Wartooth use if that drives you.

I have tried many amps, and messed with my EQ (Peavey 6505+ Combo) and I just cannot get a warm enough clear sound out of these. They aren't dynamically responsive, and the volume knob does near to nothing for them. They don't lower much in gain with guitar volume even on one. I would look at a good set of passive DiMarzio pickups. You won't regret it. close [-]
