Opinions on USRG30
I have owned two USRG30s for a while now (my first for 11 years and my second for about 6 years..hooray ****!). Apart from the physical damage sustained by both from an upset ex-wife, theyre really quite pretty. However, as i develop an ear for tone, etc...well, i dunno. Do they sound a bit loose and hollow to anyone else? Now, to be fair, im fairly gear-stupid, and it may be me. Lemme explain; I play my blue USRG straight thru my old Marshall VS100 with the stock Tone Zone/ PAF Pro pickups. Fairly weak tone, to be honest. My low end is weak, with no clarity, and my highs are a bit too thin. I switched the same Dimarzios out of my other USRG to EVO 2s. Some difference but not really. Conversely, my Les Paul with stock Burst pickups sounds big, fat and tight.
Yes, i know, apples and oranges, but MAN what a difference. Considering i paid about the same for all three, i expected more! Basically, how do YOUR USRGs act? sound?
Help a guy out!
