    I have one guitar with Moderns, and it's legit the tightest and "fastest" guitar I got.

    On the other hand, I put the Moderns in another guitar, and it was mud city.

    They just seem really fucking picky about the guitar.

    the moderns aren't any faster/clearer than the m6 or elysians ime. i guess for people used to muddier pickups they're super clear.

    The pickups sound pretty nice, but what I'm really interested in is that chorus/vibrato effect he's using for the cleans. It sounds so deep and wet. Teehee.

    Am i the only one who much preferred 6 year ago Merrow? He has gotten seriously mature with his writing his production and recording skills are top notch now.

    But i just preffered his older style. Way groovier/bouncier and more memorable. Alot of this new stuff is like too slow/eerie for my tastes. Iike i say. Grown up music.

    To be brutally honest, I never really liked his music or style. I like him, I like his guitars, and I really like his tone, but I just never got into his music.

    Question for you knowledgable guys.. if I have a modern set, and I try to use the same wiring and put the new Open Cores in (just to test, before I install in another guitar later) - will that work?

    The open Core's have the Single coil / ground where the Modern has HF Tilt and ground in the same places... wonder if that'll make a diff? Wonder if I should hmm.

    I'm pretty positive this would work just fine as long as it's setup as a push pull config.

    curious, is the universal battery pack bigger than a 9V?? I'm considering getting one for my Kiesel HH7 potentially (if I keep these pickups in there) but the 9V doesnt really fit, esp with the 2 push-pull setup of the open cores.. Wonder if the universal battery would fit but I am doubting it, based on pictures (not the connector jack, but the battery itself)

    no dimensions on the site.

    I got the steff set for both 7 and 6 strings. Amazing sounding pick ups.

    He's grown tremendously and he deserves the success he's attained, but I'm with you, his older stuff was more memorable.

    Yes. It's basically a phone batter + another thing that is about 2 phone batteries thickness. It's not as thick as a 9V battery, but it takes up more space overall. It's not really space saving - but it's super nice to have a low battery warning and the ability to recharge it so easily. Normally if I play live I change out my 9V's just to be safe. This saves out on a lot of batteries - just not space :-/

    Quick question...

    For the Abasi 7's (non-soapbar), which I believe are the nickel and black nickel versions (Black Nickel - PRF-MS7-TB2 Nickel - PRF-MS7-TN2), does anyone know if I would need to route our the pickup cavity to stick them into my Ibanez RG7321? I know that it will likely require drilling at least one small hole for a toggle switch and I'll likely use a shop to do the work vs. doing it myself, but I just wanted to double check.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Yup. Need to route the corners to be more square. Maybe even widen it a bit.
    Hell, I had to do it with my PRS SVN, and that was supposed to fit covered pickups.
