Alright...I'll keep the UV, but...... - (this is mostly goin
After my three-gig test period this week, I've decided to keep this UV777Bk we've been discussing.
Here's what I plan to have done, now that I'm committting to it:
First I'm going to have it set up (by a luthier, per jemsite recommendations) with 10s. *I've been thinking about 'lightening up' from 11s to 10s anyway. *Since there are no stock 7-string sets of .11s I'll just go with the 10s. *The 09s are too whimpy for me (sorry). *Also taking into account Gregory's post in this decision - that the guitar sits better with 10s
Second, I want to change the middle pickup - absolutely.
Forgive me if this thread is on the wrong board or if it's been discussed a thousand times before - I couldn't find it anywhere.
I play a lot of neck/middle position clean sound - a lot of R & B funk stuff, so i need that hot/punchy sound. *The Blaze just doesn't deliver that. *I love the sound I get out of the Texas special in my RG-550, and the way it combo's with the PAF pro in my neck position. **Anything comparable to that in a 7-string p'up?
What are my options here for a single coil or stacked-hum for a 7? *
I'd like to hear personal prefs, but I'll be happy even if you just give me some names so I can research on the H-C website.
