any of y'all got 1?. I'm considering purchasing a Schecter Damien platinum FRS. it is 150 dollars extra for the sustainiac pickup. the 1 that is cheaper has EMG active 8185 combo. any input would be greatly appreciated.

I like older pickups. The new f150 is too boxy looking. The gm's just look weird to me. I'd get an old restored c10 or something. Hope this helps......

I havent used one, but try the gear page forums. tens of thousands of users...someone has probably used one.

I haven't tried one. It depends on what you want, I guess. I love sustain but I find I can get plenty of it in different ways - using a compressor (Pigtronix makes some that seem to sustain for days), using a Boss sustainer pedal (I've tried one and it's cool but it's kind of a pain to have to kick the pedal in whenever you want to sustain a note). Hollow body and semi-hollow body guitars tend to get that controlled feedback much more easily too (that's my trick actually - I use a hollow body on stage and i don't have to be loud for the thing to just go forever).
