Here's the pic of my freshly modded UV
The Bridge is an Evo-7 (silver pole pieces)
The Middle is the Tom Anderson Custom Wound
The Neck is a PAF-7 (silver pole pieces)
I thought it'd be fun to put some red in there - got the knobs from Ishibashi in Japan - didn't take long, only about 10 days from the day i ordered them to the day they got here. *The shipping wasn't outrageous and the 2 knobs/tip were about $8 US.
I'm considering a red strap, but i'd have to find just the right match. *I'll probaly have forsake the DiMarzio Clip locks too (which Kevan will be proud of me for).
I'm still not sure if I'm crazy about the color scheme. *I may play around with some different color pickguards in photoshop.
Here are my thoughts on the electronics themselves:
The Evo-7 is very close to the Evo-6. *It's got that nice hot output without being overly crunchy. *I really like it. *
I'm not as keen on the PAF-7. *It's a bit darker than the PAF-pro counterpart, but I find I'm able to use it clean on its own (rather than in the 4 position) more than the regular PAF-pro. *It's got a good stratty sound, but it's not quite punchy like i want it. *I'm going to reprogram my preamp a little and I'll give it a few more weeks. *
Overall, I prefer both new pickups to the Blaze 2s. *The Blaze 2s definitely had the crunch, but didn't have the clean. *For my gigs, I need a good sound for both.
I'll be recording some stuff with it soon - check the Mulitmedia section in a few weeks.
Thanks fer looking!
