UV freshening...

At the risk of striking ire into the hearts of purists everywhere... BEHOLD! I replaced the bridge with an EVO7. The other two remain Blaze's. And for God's sake, yes, I know the toggle knob is still black.

Re: UV freshening...

I "defiled" mine as well...



Evo7 in the Bridge, Tom Anderson Single, PAF7 in the neck

I like the way yours looks with the black and white. just about anything is better than the cheezy mirror.

Re: UV freshening...

Evo7 = goodness! It's not defiling really, it's making your guitar more yours

Not sure if that question was for me, but i'll answer...the evo7 is great. far superior to the Blaze, IMO. I play a lot of different styles at my gigs and evo is versatile for most situations. It's bootom heavy, but not overbearingly so.

It cuts thru well. I wrote & recorded a little Evo7 demo a couple years ago. Everything you hear is evo in my UV.

Re: UV freshening...

hey cool. its hard for me to compare, since we have diff. gear, gain settings etc, but it sounds like the evo7 maybe has more crispness on the high end?

Re: UV freshening...

I actually love the Blaze bridge - maybe it's just the amp I run it through, but it doesn't sound scooped at all to me, and it's got this great way of always falling into semiharmonic overtones... I'm a bit bored with the neck Blaze though - it sounds like Vai no matter what I do - and I already ditched the middle singlecoil. I think I'd swap out the neck if I could just decide on something to put in there.

Re: UV freshening...

You can always unsolder two wires and go back to "normal". No harm done.
