Anyone tried a Seymour Duncan Screaming Demon in basswood?
If so, how's it sound? I'm sorta itching for a new bridge pickup for my 7620, as I was never 100% in love with the Tone Zone (a little overly mid-y, weak treble but somehow still with a bit of fizz in the "presence" range- great PU, but not perfect), and since my tonal philosophy has always been a bright gutiar into a dark amp and sicne I have a dark amp (Nomad-45, set fairly dark), I'm thinking a brighter pickup is in order.
I've always loved the smooth-yet-cutting quality of lynch's tone, and after checking out the sound clips for the JB, Custom, and Screamin' Demon over at seymourduncan.com, still came away preferring the SD to the other two. Problem is, 1.) it was probably demo'd in a Les Paul, not a RG, and 2.) it's not a production 7-string pickup, so I'd have to drop $140 on a custom shop version. I'm a little hesitant to do this, for a tone wood that I've never heard it in (Lynch uses alder and maple, I believe), so has anyone tried a 6-string version in basswood? Any thoughts?
