Re: Difference between RG8570 and 8670?
ok, it's just me or what.
i've got 8570, swaped the pickups into duncan Distortion bridge and neck, in the middle is litlle 59.
the original line up : tone zone, blue velvet- air norton did not please me well.
the reason I changed the PUs was I found the tone is too muddy, not mentioning that it was very smooth and 'polite' distortion with the original Pus, i thought it was the tone zone, I never like yone zone anyway, so i changed it.
now, with duncan, there is an improvement, but still muddy.
I compare to other Rg with basswood and same pickups ( duncan distortion), the basswood produce more gain and brighter sounding than the 8570.
Is it because of the maple top on the 8570 or do I have trouble with the potentio or something?
the output on 8570 is ok, there is no problem on the output.
