DMT Pat Baker (Baker Act) Bridge Humbucker Pickup.
A Guitar Ninja Review

This is the pickup that Pat designed for himself so its with a degree of interest I loaded this baby into my Guitar.

Now, over the years I have gone from one pickup brand to another in search for the perfect pickup to match a particular guitar and as I am the Guitar Ninja, I have a vast supply of Guitar weaponry at my disposal, so I have fitted this pickup in both a solid Mahogany V (USA Pro V) shaped Guitar and a Maple Topped mahogany Single cut (Dean Soltero USA) to really get a feel for this pup.

One thing that strikes me about this pup, is the expressive quality it seems to impart on both guitars. The push strident tone of the V seems to posses more harmonics than ever. Just holding a note with a good dollop of volume and gain, results in a rich harmonic explosion that reminds you why a guitar can stir the emotions more than any other instrument.

Switching to the Maple topped Single Cut, I was utterly blown away by this pickup. I have for many years used a popular make of pickup well know for its fondness for maple caps. But this pup tames the spiky top end and flabby bass that plagues many pickups designed for this purpose. The result is a clear, mid prominent, harmonically rich sound that works with any amount of gain or Power Amp style gain. Chords chime without bass notes over powering the balance. Single notes sing into harmonic feedback (if desired) that actually makes you wish the solo had just a few more bars in it…

I would recommend that any rock or metal guitar player with a Mahogany based guitar look no further than the Baker Act to give their them the cut and life that this pickup imparts. However make no mistake this ain’t no vintage offering. Its high output and lively mids kicks that question right in the strap button. This pup will rock and roll all night long, party every day, drink all your beer and demand to be used loud on full blast baby!

At the end of this review I expected to refit my old pickups. But I can tell you that this will not be happening, as the pickup and subject of the review have now become part of my own weaponry….Get in!!!!!!!!!
