    Hot overwound PAF is about all I know about it. High output and clear. It's a bit of a risk but I like trying new pickups and can't find anything negative about the guy's stuff so why not :lol:

    Plus even with the stupid expensive boutique bridge and decent priced neck and middle it's less than 1/2 the cost of the Fender Custom Shop relics I was looking at...

    May not be exactly what you’re after, but I had a Fred in the neck of an Ibanez S for years and worked really well as a hot PAFish pup there.

    Hmmm. That makes me think Duncan Custom. It will be interesting to see how it is.

    I'd just go with a relatively "generic" PAF, in the sense it's in the typical output range, etc.

    On sale for $115 at Prymaxe and the Memorial Day coupon saves you another 25%.

    I feel like only in the US can you stack coupons :scratch:.

    Original plan: sell huber, buy jm, buy strat.

    Current rollout: huber listed, jm bought, mystery high end guitar bought, squier pulled out of storage.

    Trying to convince myself I don’t need a 6 string E-II EC. Definitely not one with EMG’s. For sure. Don’t need it.

    I would really love a Japanese Jackson. Anyone any experience with these? How are the trems on them? I've seen them only have livenced Floyd Rose trems.

    You're talking about the ones like the DKMG witht the JT580LP? I actually liked mine for the most part. From what I can tell they can be swapped for Schaller Floyd Roses (not the Lockmeister).

    It appears to be, but none of the ones I see match the 16" radius at the bridge. The Schallers look like they are all the same, since the Lockmeister and the other one are the same dimensions.

    I cannot get the coupon to work at Prymaxe. I am severely tempted to spend money I shouldn’t on an Ultra Wave.

    It didnt work on all items especially demo. But if you log in and put in cart and try coupon and it doesnt work, you should get an invoice emailed to you with some form of discount. Worked twice already with me. You could always chat with them if impatient too lol.

    I could have saved $400 on a HW Vox but decided against it. Ended up saving almost $400 on the EVH 5153S and matching 212.

    Be careful ordering at Prymaxe.

    If you do take the risk, make sure it's actually in stock and not preorder, or you'll be waiting MONTHS.

    And when you go to request a refund, you'll be told you can only get store credit. If you get it and wish to send it back, tough, because regardless of when you receive it, the return policy starts the day you order. I'm sorry, but their practices are horrid. Not worth the "deal" you get.

    So only buy stuff you're sure you want and don't need quickly and don't use them as a rent-a-center and you'll be fine. I've used them for some pickups and pedals I definitely wanted and have had no problems. Be prepared to wait if it is something that isn't in stock though.

    I'm still waiting on the EVH Frankie Relic I ordered from them in summer of 2019. But in fairness they warned me it was a long wait and last time I inquired they said possibly june.
