Dimarzio Titan vs Seymour Duncan Nazgul Pickups Comparison (Video)

Last week I ended up buying an Ibanez RG752 off of Craigslist (I had zero plans of buying another guitar so I’m still not sure how that happened). It came with a set of Seymour Duncan pickups, a Sentient in the neck and a Nazgul in the bridge. They were wired wrong so it sounded […]
