I usually play with an EMG 57/66, I have those in both an LTD-KH602 and an ESP Standard Eclipse. I really like them in the KH, they sound great, big and ballsy and dynamic, good amount of attack. they sound pretty good in the Eclipse, but not as good to me. I may just put a JB back in that. I'm a bedroom/living room player so I don't need to cut through any mixes. I'm playing through a Fargen DBC with a hot-rodded JCM800 channel. I have an Ibanez ARZ700 that I don't really love (EMG 81/60), it's not just the pickups, I don't really love the guitar, but I got it cheap, so whatever. I'm looking to upgrade this and would mostly play drop tuned in it, say drop C. So, there aren't many in stores here, but I was able to try out a PRS Holcomb. I love the guitar, feels great, looks bad-ass, but I felt something was lacking in the Omega (bridge). The clarity was great, I loved how tight it was (amazing, really), but I felt like it was missing some bite. I should note that I was playing through an OR15 (though not high gain, it's pretty dynamic), it's what I could get some time in front of. Any recommendations for something else that I could try? To make it more difficult, I'd like: 1. The tightness of the Omega with the aggression of something like the JB (doesn't necessarily have to sound like the JB, but tight and aggressive). 2. Preferably something that already comes stock in a 25.5 scale length guitar. I tend to buy used so if I'm waiting for the right combo, it will take a while. And, I'd like to keep my costs under $1000, so it would be better if it came stock. Thanks, and happy holidays, all.
