K that one worked.

When I use your soundcloud link I see this:

Re: Custom Jem Blitz!

Nope... not me, lol.

Here's another piece (called Grimm12) with the JEM (all guitar parts, except strumming acoustic) is the JEM:

Any wah or envelope filter tones are from the new Wahoo pedal from Sonuus (incredible wah that has no pots... no noise).

Prelude to a Dawning:

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/l...ll/play1153571

The JEM Sublime through a clean Pritchard amp. All wah and modulation effects (even the drive and distortion) via the Sonuus Wahoo pedal. Incredible pedal... will be selling my other wahs.

Re: Custom Jem Blitz!

Could you upload a video of a sound test? Would love to see it in action!

Re: Custom Jem Blitz!

I don't have a video camera. The luthier did a video (hardware has been added to it since), but he pumped it through a Line6 amp with a particular effects setting (and so you can't really tell the true sound of it). I'll tell you this... all my guitars and all their pickups are predictable with my equipment (amps, pedals, etc.)... but these Sublime pickups have such a unique personality in how each one responds and relative to the volume and tone knobs. I know... all pickups are like that to an extent... but these are so 'sensitive' and dynamic that the more you learn how to 'tame the beast,' the more you can do with it. Extremely hard to hide behind mistakes... and so, if you hear any in my playing, there you have it, lol.

Re: Custom Jem Blitz!

Nice work on the musical pieces B. I've got another project going with Andras also. Those Sublimes are cool and they are great to work with. More planed next year too. Enjoy!

Re: Custom Jem Blitz!

His pickups are incredibly dynamic... the more you play the more you get a sense of technique and what to do to shape the notes. Incredibly interesting stuff he's doing. Not like stock DiMarzios I can tell you that (although I'm speaking to the choir!).
