sounds good pard...honestly you could actually help me make some patches on the Axe when I get set up over there...I've been working so much (at least 60hrs a week) that when I can finally play every night, I don't want to fiddle with the thing hahaha...terrible. Still playing my $3500 mayones on a line6 spider 2
The only time I've ever played a seven string was a low end ltd 7 in Guitar Center in Tacoma. When you move to Clallam I will definitely jam with you. I have a drum set, and my pod hd500+monitor at my house so you could just bring a guitar and be set. Or your axe fx
I play drums pretty well too.
Yeah exactly, they're just not really my style. But like I said, they sit in the mix just about perfectly. I've been into more vintage style pups lately. JB/59, CL/LF, PAFs and the like. You really do need to come check the fiddles out tho mang. when I was your age (hahaha) I actually had to drive into Seattle just to play a 7-string for the first time. Also, should be moving your way in the next few months.
Yeah I know what you mean, it's so tight that you have to play everything perfectly and really focus on what you are doing. The thing I love the most about it is it's compression. It makes it hit really hard, that's the only way I can describe it. Like smacking a snare drum. I dig compressed high output pickups though, I played Emg's for a long time and liked them. Same with black outs. My D-activator x's have more output than any Emg's i've played. They're almost scary high output
Ohhh that's right it's that PRS hardtail bridge...looks pretty damn similar from the pics, if anything the string spacing may be a tad different. The only thing with the aftermaths for me was that when I was just sitting down and playing/jamming they didn't have the sound that made me want to just let loose if that makes sense...a tad compressed. But for recording, once I did some post-eq and mastering and all that, it did seem to get a bit closer to the "sound I heard in my head" kind of a thing. I'm more of a plug-and-play kind of a guy though so playing-tone is more important to me than recording-tone.
