Re: Took some pics today.
Wow, that is really cool. Are those stock and/or DiMarzio, or did you add other stuff like Duncans and others? I like the visual appeal and if the pickups are different models, it can be fun to change them out to get a different overall sound.
I am waiting for plug and play, like EMGs, for Gibson, DiMarzio, and Seymour Duncan so a player could have an arsenal of pickups they can quickly swap out each time they change strings. A Jem with two 36th anniversary pickups and vintage single coil will sound quite a bit different than that same Jem with stock, hotter pickups. It could lend a lot of versatility and pretty much get those old Les Paul sounds and old Fender sounds without having to ditch the familiarity of the Jem.
So much is said about the wood, the top, the fingerboard and while one could hear some difference, the pickups on a solidbody electric guitar is the lion's share of the plugged in sound and it would be great to have plug and play pickups.
