Yeah, so apparently the pickups that are used in the signature models aren't actually the pickups he used.

Someone on YouTube said he actually had an EMG 81 and Dimarzio Dual Sound as a comment on a video where someone was playing the MG-120X signature model.

Does anyone have any certain information on what pickups he used like info from a score book or something?
Specifically from the Blue Blood and Jealousy era if possible.

Thanks!

EDIT: Also, if anyone has any extra info on how hide's guitars are different from the signature models could you please tell me? :)

I think hide made made his pick ups by himself. At least that's what I read a long time ago...

The signatures are different from hide's guitars in every way eXcept the shape, at least that's what I've heard.
The only way to get a hide-guitar would be buying a Fernandes/Burny MG from eBay and changing the pickups.

I've heard that hide had a Fernandes Sustainer -pickup (neck position) on most of his guitars.
That explains some of the tricks he does on Dahlia.

he also used  "Dual Sound TM" Humbucker DP-101 by DiMarzio.

At least that's what is written in the book which lies on my knees =)

I'm gonna read it very carefully but I don't have time enough now because it's all in japanese...

It looks like it costs about 100€

EDIT : I did forget to tell the reference of the pick up....
