Well, after looking at all sorts of posts on here, and the old forom, plus spending hours at Dimarzio's site looking at tone charts, I got an Evo7..
I like it, it's pretty darn crunchy, sorta like a mellowed out(harmonically), then overwound, Norton.. I like all the midrange it puts out, and the massive treble helps a bit too..
Funny thing, the pickup takes up the whole rout on my RG7, it's the right height with no risers, just sitting flush against the guitar.. Pretty cool..
I'm gonna save my full opinion till I've had it a bit though..
The AirNorton7 is exactly what I expected, same tone as the 6 string one..
What I'm kinda miffed about is that Dimarzio told me they don't make these pickups in white, so I had to get creme.. I really wanted the white to off-set the blue RG.. Oh well.. Still, they're about a million times better than those stock new7 things...
Just for fun, here she is.. Currently unnamed, but that'll change soon, as I start playing her more..
Still Haven't gotten used to the neck width, but that should come in time..
She's wired like this now, though:
Bridge + Neck tapped(inside coils)
Bridge + Neck
Bridge + Neck tapped(outside coils)
One megaswitch, one 1meg volume, and a 'dummy' tone.. :biggrin:
Sorry for the blurry images, I'm not really good with cameras..
BTW, did I mention the Evo7 sounds sick playing gallop rhythms on the low B? Well, it does.. :biggrin:
