Well what do ya know?? I finally found a use for the tone knob. I played with the tone knob on her and tamed the brightness a bit, right where I like it. I understand the what switching the magnets does and if you are looking for more aggressive, it is certainly a good mod.

Yeah, the DY color is just so different, it's yellow but not really. odd color really.

Well, that was easy. Changed the V7 magnet with the V8 magnet.

The neck certainly sounds better but I am not sure on the V8. It took an already bright guitar and made it brighter I think. Just playing through some of my presets. May have to re-eq some of them. It has more clarity rhythm wise but leads are a little brighter.

A real easy mod though and really does change pickups.

Definitely try the magnet swap. It's very surprising how much better it all sounds.

Thought I would update on this guitar after putting some good time into her playing.

It is awesome and either my tones have changed or my ears have changed because I am absolutely loving the tones from the maple board. Aggressive but not overly trebly and that is with the stock V7,V8 pickups.

Thought about throwing the Air Norton I have into her this weekend and had thought about putting a Screamin Demon in when money allows but now I'm not sure about the Demon. May look into the magnet swap instead since I have never tried it or heard the results.

The previous owner had it tuned Eflat and had 10's on it. Had to make some adjustments, have not decided if I want my tech to set it up or not. It is incredibly easy to play.

Love having something a bit more aggressive than the Herc.

Thanks!!

I went to clean it last night and was going to clean the fretboard and decided it was not necessary. Its really clean.

All I am going to do is change strings, change out some of the pickguard screws, change the 5-way switch and take a look at the changing the input jack because it does not snap in real well tight. General maint stuff.
