Cool Breed into my SG (Yummy mahagony pics inside(Big))

So Ive had this Breed sittin around for a few months, and my anxiety finally won me over yesterday.

I originally got it from MF, to go into my mex Fat Strat (HSS). Anyhow, didnt like it there, too middy for my taste I thought. This led to me buying an Evolution i think the next day, lol. The Breed was in for 3 days while i waited, and i kept trying to like it, but no. However, when i went to wire the evo, i found i had wired the breed slightly incorrectly, I went on with the evo wiring anyhow, but i decided not to bias myself against the breed as i had erred in installing it. Btw evo was EXCEPTIONAL in the strat, still is, but yall know this...

Anyhow, finally decided to try it once again, in my stock, superb, gibson SG standard. Bridge pup was fine but, pups lying around sceam to be used, and a few reveiws on harmony central praised breed in the SG. I gave in.
When I got the guard off, wow, it just looked so good I had to break out the digi:

Without the black guard, it lit up so nicely. this one has amazing grain


I should have gotten one of the controls. Clean, sturdy wiring, very well done



Almost forgot! Finished product: (sorry, mr.470 loves the camera)


Well, as far as the Breed in the SG: Bleh =(. Dont get me wrong, the lead tone is amazing, the warmer, rounder, more polite version of evo, Vintage Hotness, lmao. But the mids of this guitar, which I thought would be tamer due to the thin body(?), came out strong, as Dimarzios EQ curve suggests. Too strong for me, I was aiming for a more versatile sound that could handle some heavy riffing and thicker chords, but this is way to fuzzy-ish! But obviously a great pup in it's own right. It could make some other tone woods very happy. It looks great too.

Next up, Steves Special. I hear good things. And Jani cant be wrong...
Thanks for readin!

Re: Breed into my SG (Yummy mahagony pics inside(Big))

Hmmm - yes, I have to say the PAF Pros in my older JEM sound nicer than the Breeds in the newer one IMHO - Duncan Pearly Gates and Custom Custom also good choices if you want tone, but not necessarily tons of gain - bridge P/U in my PRS (the Pearly Gates - the Custom Custom was just TOO loud!)- mmmmm very nice indeed!

Gorgeous SG - I'm guessing that the "NB" written in the front P/U cavity means that some observant soul at Gibson thought the same as you about the grain, and decided she has to be "natural brown"!

Cheers,

David

For sure, it should have the small SG pickguard.

Re: Breed into my SG (Yummy mahagony pics inside(Big))

Update: Hmmm Im actually starting to really like this pup in the SG. The clangy-buzzness of the new strings has been wearing away, uncovering the sounds they were masking. The mids are actually not bad at all, maybe in the higher registers of the lower strings, but overall very managable. Breed has a lot of depth to it, and is very responsive to changes in pick attack and how hard you dig into it, thus versatile. You can go from open-sounding to tight in an instant. Again, great lead tone.

Anyhow, it'll stay in for now. I think
