UV777Bk Freshly Modded

Just finished the mod on this guitar. Turned out nice. A fresh twist with so many of these UVs out there.

Evo7 in the bridge, Blaze IIs for neck and middle. The Evo7 is very nice. A great surprise with all the negative comments I've seen on it.

Neato!

I thought about doing the same thing with chrome pickup covers, or a clear pickguard.

I've got the Tone Zone 7 in the bridge and a PAF 7 in the neck, stock single still.. I actually kind of like the sound of it, but may change it later.

The black/white look is nicer than I thought it would be. Sweet!

I keep wondering about the Evo7ís. Do they have a lot more gain than the stock PUís?

Hi Bob.

I don't know about the Evo's but I found the Tone Zone to just be a better pickup overall. Tone/gain/feel etc.

Factory pickups (regardless of who's supposed to make'em) generally underwhelm me.

In otherwords, you'd probably notice and improvement regardless of what pickup you put in there. The stockers just lack character to me... or maybe I'm just hearing things.

BTW - Seymour Duncan offers about half of its line in 7 stringers too. The Duncan JB is a long time favorite of mine as is the Full Shred. I have one of each coming and am going to play 'swap the pickups' for a day and figure out what combination I like most.

Tommy: Nice!

The black guard with white laminate and white pickups looks really sharp on that guitar.

Good job!

Thanks for the comments guys. I am happy with the results, especially sonically. *Bob, the Evo does have a lot more gain, but a lot of it is the mids that are boosted that *sonically make it cut through and drive my Legacy just like the Jem7VWH and its Evos.

Those stock pickups are Blaze IIs guys, not your ordinary stock pus. I love the Blaze IIs, but the older ones on the older UVs seem to have more life and clarity to them. IMO

Thanks guysÖ *There have been a lot of keyboards worn out on Pickup discussion here in the past, but I didnít pay too close attention. *Now that Iím pondering a custom (7 string of course) I am paying attention.

Tommy, Did Genie Pickguards make the pick guard?

Yeah, Roger made it for me Bob. 48 hrs after the call to order it, it was at my door. Roger is awesome.

I know what ya mean on prior pickup discussions. I saw many, many threads turn into a pickup discussion. Good luck if ya decide to change yours. Of course, you could follow through on your custom 7

Re: UV777Bk Freshly Modded

Now that's a silly request. Why would you want to delete threads older than 3 years? There's a wealth of information and history here.
