Re: NGD RG1420F
Congrats! H H + a whammy always = win IMO. Nice collection.
On the stock pups that you mentioned surprised you - I'm NOT surprised to read that, lol. I have the red 1420F and tried numerous DiMarzio's in it (Tone Zone, Fred, Super Dist, Air Zone, Evo's) for several months, recording a lot of reference tracks to revisit the tones after my ears freshened up...and you know what I settled on for now? Yep, the STOCK v6 pups!!! I slapped them back in and that was that, knew it as soon as I heard it. I guess it still (like always) comes down to all our other variables, guitar/pups into X amp, speakers, mics, blah, blah....and with THIS guitar, the stock pickups felt best through my particular setup, go figure.
Enjoy your new axe!
