Tyler Strat Pickup Mod

I love my Tyler, but I was having some trouble playing it with distortion on a loud amplifier. The bridge pickup would squeal uncontrollably on the gain channel of my amp with the volume cranked up to rehearsal/gig levels. I figured it might be the cover on the Duncan JB, so I decided to pull the cover off and give it a quick test. I was correct. ;)

Typically, factory covered Duncans do not have pickup tape installed on them, so I just stole some off an old, cheap Ibanez pickup (I was never going to use anyway) and taped it up. The pickup looks stock, and now my Tyler behaves at high volume. ;)
