    I got the iron label s7 natural finish and didn't like the PAF 7's so i put some dimarzio XN2's. based on what information I've gathered XN2's have a great output in direct comparison to the crunchlabs. I plugged it into my jcm2000 and for some reason on the bridge pickup it still sounds muddy. i might have to replace the tubes because my head is damn near 10 years old? idk.. I've seen a few threads about these guitars but i don't really have much of an idea as to how different pick ups can affect the overall tone on with this type of body (basswood or bubinga?) lol

    I'm indeed a noob btw

    Hell yeah man. 2x. I found that the Tone Zone 7 and the AN 7 worked GREAT in a SIR27FD... the TZ's brashness works with this one for sure. I also put the new bridge on it to get rid of that blocky bitch.

    If the tubes are original, I would definitely put some new ones in. I typically get about a year and a half out of my tubes.
