I'm probably going to buy a 8 stringer, don't know if fanned fret 25,5-28' or just straight 28'. The body is going to be swamp ash and the fingerboard is maple don't know about the neck yet but it will be bolt on. I love death metal and prog. I'm NOT interested in Juggs or C-bombs, I want something with big deep tone, clear and not much pick noisy, I prefer tight palm mutes versatility. I plan to tune to standard. My amp is a 5153 so I don't want any pickup too trebbly. Are Lundgren M8 going to pierce my ear like nails in this bright guitar? Should I go for something proven dark as the C-pigs?
