Re: I need to upgrade my RG2750E VGD Suggestions?
Picguard looks great on there! Totally changes the look of the guitar! Well done!
As far as pickups? I'm a similar style but a different format....I tend to use a lower output pickup and use more gain at the amp....instead of the other way around...works for me.
My current Axes have the following:
Jem FP2 - Evo 2 bridge, Evo neck
Jem 70V - Gravity storm neck and bridge
J-Custom RRG4 - Transition neck and bridge
J-Custom purple - Custom 5 bridge and neck
Universe Green dot - Blaze bridge, neck, middle.
I have tried a pile of different pickups over the years. If you are doing 80's metal, etc....have you consider a Dimarzio Super Distortion or Super 3 for more mid emphasis? Would sound great in there. If you like the Petrucci stuff, a Liquifire and Crunch Lab combo are great for high gain! That chrome bar on the Crunch lab would go beautifully with that pick guard you have on there.
What would also look neat on that guitar is if you matched the truss rod cover to the pick guard!
