It sounds as though you might possibly benefit more by getting a Grind/33 pedal or similar clone rather than a pup swap?
So Cobra Commander is housebound and making YouTube demo vids now?
Fixed bridge 7 string MIK/MIJ Iceman w/ a 27" would be the permanent cure for the GAS.
Don't knock the GAS! GAS gives definition and meaning to otherwise pointless and inarticulate lives.
Rather that 7 string Iceman than anything else. Make that, and that'll be the last guitar I'll have to buy.
C and D apparently.
Wouldn't using a thicker set of strings alleviate the issue? Something like a set of .062?
I don't believe there's a cure for my GAS, but I always wanted either a 7 string acrylic-bodied Mockingbird or Iceman with a 28" scale neck.
In my case it was a used Kiesel 7 string, but everything quoted above holds true. If the OP isn't in a rush to buy then do what I did and...

I have a Two-Notes Le Lead and I honestly can't hear anything the tube is supposed to be doing when I using it straight into a DAW. Same w/ an ADA...

First thing I thought when I heard it was early 80s Italian film score. And yes, that's a compliment.
I was wondering if that might not be suspended in order to help get the economy back on its feet after things begin to normalize again.
Tom Warrior = mahogany Icemans
@rdhx have you considered giving Schecter a shot? I got a KM-1 for cheap a while back, and really liked it.
Plague prices ftw!
I got a pedal on the cheap last week too. Got to love these panic sellers.
