The EQ switch broke on my RGA7, and completely destroyed my chances of getting another one as i got mine before the big shipment came in around june ( I got mine at February) It's a pretty good guitar. Pick-ups a trash i think.
But i've got a 1527 now. And i'm sticking with that for a good while ;D
I haven't tried out an RC7
But i do own a 1527. And i must say it's a great guitar, very very comfortable neck. Excellent fretwork and i imagine if you swapped the pickups it'd sound twice as good. Only thing that bugs me a bit is the tremelo, mine needs properly setting up as the string...
When i saw him live, i'm sure i saw a POD X3 ontop of some Marshall dummy's
I have a good feeling he's using some sort of Line 6 head and cab, because he's got that real fat heavy line 6 distortion tone, that's excessivley loud too.
And yeah i've heard some great things about this guitar. About it being real smooth, and something that you can rely on for years. Which is something i'll dig a lot. I don't usually go for Basswood guitars as i just have a belief it isn't a great wood, Mahogany is what i'm usually...
I was thinking the D-activator, but i've heard rumours it doesn't sound the best in Basswood? Of course i wouldn't know for sure, i know it sounds great in mahogany since i've played a Xiphos 7 of my friends a good few times.
And i didn't know the EVO was much of a brutal pickup O: Learn...
I'll check out that Mod man, thanks much ;D
And yeah i had a feeling i might have to swap the pups, what pups would you recommend? I'm playing brutal death metal kind've stuff, so i want something that really growls and screams. But also it need some clarity for when i hit full chords. ;D
Can't you tune to what Devin Townsend does on his 7? Open G? Or i could be wrong, either way you've got a real low G note, and still have a high e if you need it.
EDIT: Just saw you're not a fan of open tunings. My bad D:
Yeah bud, i'll be doing that for sure. One reason why i've stayed away from double locking trems is the whole restringing process, i heard it takes people like a half hour and stuff. D:
And i don't know if this is because i'm half asleep or just really stupid. But i'm not quite getting your...
So yeah, buying an Ibby 1527, for £700 (Good or bad price?)
Anyways i was checking up on it's hardware and noticed it has an Edge Pro 7
What are peoples opinions on the trem? It'll be my first time using a locking trem on any guitar, and i wanted to know if it's a good trem or whether i...
