    Bringing the topic back to the SC20H...best pickups for an SC20H for blues? For mayhem?

    Totally makes sense, I don't think there's much of a difference either way.

    Man that's some smart looking rig! That's a badass little powerhouse LCW, do you gig with that? Also, how are you liking those V-Type speakers in that cab?

    I love how guitar gear has taken over his tv stand.

    Thanks - absolutely loving it! I do run some pedals into for more gain. Favorite right now is the Airis Savage Drive.

    Liking the V-types so far! Had some V30s with a 5153 in the past (which I found a bit trebly) and a Blackstar HT20 with a 70-80 loaded 2x12 which worked ok but didn’t have the depth of this setup.

    I don’t gig - just some hack bedroom player lol. Although I’d like to think this setup could be gig worthy for small clubs.

    PS - really liked your video showing the various tones from the SC20. Especially the Tool riffs. Edit: actually it was tce63’s vid but you had reposted it.

    Nice, I'm kind of happy to see guys like you with these kinds of rigs that are at home players. Makes me feel a little better about my gear, because I'm an at home player these day. I use to gig a hundred years ago, but now I'm retired and things are tight soooo,.... I need to be careful. One can spend a lot of money on this stuff!

    I love your setup!

    Yes i've played the combo at G.C near my house many times. They can't sell that amp. It was a return and it's been sitting for over 6 months. Sounds really bad. Nothing like a 4010 combo (2204) that i had from 1982. Doesn't sound anything like it. Sounds cheap like a DSL 20. For $1499 I wouldn't pay $400 for it. Was that bad.

    @Ian Alderman has a SC20 combo and the clips he's posted in this thread sound great! I’m a little put off that Marshall didn’t put a 12” speaker in the SC20 and SV20 combos like the mini Jubilee, but Ian’s combo sounds thick and full and growling.

    Maybe @abkeller1 played a bad one at his local GC, maybe there’s something wrong with it, I don’t know. But the clips I’ve heard here and on YouTube sound great!

    Maybe the one @abkeller1 tried was a bum unit, which is a shame. I'm with @scozz on wishing that the combo came with a 12 though the 10 inch does fine.

    In all actuality I'm rethinking the bridge pickup situation in my Les Paul. There's a big bottom to the Studio Classic combo, and right now having a Seymour Duncan Pegasus it sounds pretty good but with a big and loose low end.

    Not sure if a Custom 5 would sound good with this combo. It's got me thinking a pickup like a JB or a 498T may work better for this amp but we'll see. I'm certain that there are plenty of PAF on steroids players out there that sound amazing through a jcm800 though.

    Bottom line is that even though the combo is only packing 10 inches, it's pretty girthy sounding, and packs a wallop for it's size which continues to surprise me every time I've played.

    The pickup should be matched to the guitar, not the amp.

    Once I get my pickups installed (Seymour Duncan 59 in the neck and Custom 5 in the bridge) I'll throw up a clip. I feel like from my research that the pickups, guitar, and amp should all be complimentary. I feel like they'll give me what the stock pickups had, but a little oomph that the stock bridge pickup was missing. The burstbucker pros were actually pretty good and fit the guitar quite well, though I never tried it with the Studio Classic.

    I wholeheartedly agree with pickups matching the guitar not the amp though. If I decided to buy something way different than the Studio Classic, say a Rectoverb 25 or something like that, I'd want to make sure the pickups are going to stand and deliver for that amp as well as the Marshall.

    I have burstbucker pros in both of my LP Traditional’s.
    They both sound great coming through the Origin’s and the Dsl40c’s, my epi’s had all got changed to SD JB’s except 1 it had EMG’s in it.
    All my Strats got SD’s of one flavor or another, and through my Marshall amps they all sound great!!!
    Cheers Mitch
