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!
