    i was disappointed playing "pure" with the pus...normally i'm boosting the signal with my boss gx 700 to the same level my other guitar has (for noisegate and so on).
    then,it sounds ok to my ears :rolleyes: nice train of thought sound hoho,works for me

    update:
    rewired my electronics and the potis are bypassed....now i'm quite like this :agreed:

    I've owned an RG2027 for a few years now. Sounds great, you just have to slap the right pickup in it. TZ7's are good :)

    But I think it sounds good, I mean, there's plenty of people that downtune mahogony 6strings to the levels of a 7string, and they never complain...

    Hey, welcome man, and congrats on the recent nomination. :)

    The TZ in mahogany wasn't for me, but I have a feeling our tastes are a bit different, and even I had to admit that it sounded better clean and for chunky riffing than the Evo that replaced it. For lead work, though, the lack of high end was kinda a detriment. Course, I wasn't playing the world's brightest toned amp at the time those days, either... ;)

    :wavey: whats up man. congrats also on the nomination, im diggin the new record very much. i always wanted to try a mahogany 7 because i like to have my low chords have a bit of loosness to them... but i want to keep my speed picking really distinct and clear, can it still do that? :rolleyes:

    I have an Ibanez 2027 with an Evo7 in it and I love the sound. I run it through a dual rec, and constantly get compliments on my tone after shows..

    Oh no, that's my old 2027, isn't it? Man... I keep running into that thing. Glad you're enjoying it, though, and I can attest, that's a great-sounding bridge pickup in that guitar... :)

    Heh, yeah that's the one.. guess it was about 2 years ago I bought it from you now. It rules. Fargin' heavy though. It's my main guitar, and everytime I pick up my basswood 7421 it feels like it's about to float away. Hasn't yet though so that's a good thing.

    Yeah, tell me about it... I don't think I ever played more than a two hour gig with her, but you felt it in your shoulder the next morning...

    The UV that's now my main player, on the other hand, weighs next to nothing and sounds just ungodly. I don't get it, but you can't argue with tone... :)

    Glad that 2027 worked out for you, though.

    Man, that PWH you've got is sweet... that's the only UV that I really drool over. I love its more classic look.. very nice.

    Thanks! You gotta see this one in person, though- it's more of a cream than a true white, and the body's taken some abuse over the years. It's beautiful the way a beat up old strat is beautiful (and sounds just disgustingly good, too).

    It certainly makes this constant bombardment of pictures of my old 2027 you're subjecting me a little easier to take. ;)
