    Okay guys, this one ought to be way easier than the S7420FM-TW. I'd like to get one of the Dean EVO-7's in black, because I think it would be a great guitar to modify. Solid, LP-style guitar... maybe I'll put EMGs in it, or Bareknuckles.
    Anyway, let me know if you have one, and want to sell it. r3dd3n@aol.com.
    Thank you!

    Wouldn't a DiMarzio Evo 7 be the best to put in that guitar? :lol:

    I've always subscribed to the idea that you ought to choose a pickup that accentuates the natural characteristics of a guitar. In an RG762#, there's kind of a scoopy sound naturally from the basswood, so put in some Blazes, JBs, etc. In a RGT, where the sound is a little thicker, use an Invader. A Parker, where highs and high mids abound, use the DiMarzio Parker pickups, or a Pearly Gates, or something else with a lot of highs.

    Though I've never played an EVO-7 before, I'm going to assume from the body woods/construction that it has kind of a thick sound to begin with, so I was planning on emphasizing that with some Bareknuckle Warpigs, 707s, or maybe an Invader or Tone Zone.

    Meant to add: it's never worked well (or as well, anyway) for me to try to 'balance' a guitar out... putting a pickup with lots of highs in a guitar with lots of lows, or vice versa.

    Actually, an EVO might work pretty well with an EVO. They have a fairly creamy rich sound in the neck and a nice punch in the bridge.

    ... not that I'm against the idea. I love the pickup.

    Just in case someone actually responds with one of these while I'm gone, I'm just letting everyone know that I'm getting married in a few days, and will be in Italy for 2 weeks, so please, still respond, but I may not get back to you right away. Just PM me, since its unlikely this will be at the top of the list by the time I get back. Thank you!

    okay, how about this... I'm just plain interested in a Dean EVO-7, whether it's black or not. If not, I'll figure out some fun finish project with it anyway. So, let me know if you have any sort of a Dean EVO-7 that you'd be willing to sell. Thanks!
