The Godin Glissitar is killer. I ALMOST bought it. The store let me try it out in my studio for a few days. Its an 11 string fretless classical electric guitar. BEAUTIFUL tone

* THANKS! I'll keep that in mind This summer in august i will be working at the state fair carnival... ill make around 1200 dollars in about 10 days... that will give me enough to present my sales pitch to my parents as to why i need a JS90th and a set of evolutions :thumbsup:

One more delema.... I know you guys can help me out with this one *and i know what your gonna say*

recently i've been looking at the Godin LGX-T's..

well i think you all know the question.... LGX-T or JS-90?

hahaha :biggrin:

The Evolutions, in my JS, sound great to me . They actually sound more 'Satchy,' to me, than the stock ones did. Go figure . I never really did like the FRED at all, though it sounds great in my CP. BTW, I am running through a Legacy also. Great sound .

well, yes.....


I for one, have no problem modifying any guitar, as long as its stock isnt numberd. In that case i would leave it be unless i had an INCREDIABLE reason to change it.

Why? *If you improve the guitar, go ahead! *Just don't let a hack do it. *AND, don't expect to get as much if you plan on reselling.

I am happy to report back that I have solved the problem, I was just limiting the sigional so much going to the cab that the speakers wernt driving... leading a a sloppy sound..... i also starte using 1.20 or so gauge picks and that helps alot to get a crisper sound. I just need to get ahold of a 2-12 cab to use instead of my 4-12......

i still think i want to change the pu's on this guitar though.. maby AFTER i find a JS90, i will pack this baby full of some evo's or somethin... i could have it routed and put a sing coil in there too.... THAT would be verry nice.

but who would wanna cut a pice out of such a beautiful guitar?????

Iain did put Evos in his JS. *They sound very good, though the guitar still sounds very much like a JS.

Personally, I like the PAF Pro as a neck pickup, but I don't usually use distortion with the neck pickup. *I have a J-Custom with a Fred in the neck. *It works better with distortion I think, but sounds a little 'flat' clean when compared to the PAF Pro. *If you're looking for something similar to the PAF Pro tone-wise, but with a little less bass, the Fred would probably be a good choice.

The Air Norton is also a great neck pickup, very smooth. *I've only played one a couple times, but wil be putting one in a guitar soon. *Sounds great clean as well.

The Humbucker from Hell, as Jono noted, is another great neck pickup to use with distortion, very very smooth, brighter than most neck PUs, bu not in a bad way.

Either of those three should take you in the direction you're looking to go, the Air Norton would be my personal choice of the three.

Well I have Semore Duncans in my strat. I have a Screamin Deamon in the bridge, a Hot Rails in the middle, and a lil 59 in the neck. I like them acually. But I think Dimarzio's pickups are better. I tried out a double fat strat the other day with 2 pearly gates in it. Sounds very very cool. If I had to choose between pickups it would be Dimarzio's all the way. I only got these because I knew nothing about gear and needed new pickups. You should change the pickups you have now into the Pearly Gates, but if you like your Fred, try the Fred in the neck position and see what happens! you can always x-change it for other pickups if you don't like it! :biggrin: oh and I was kidding on that Legacy high gain thing, it has a nice amount of gain, could go a little longer...but that's what a DS-1 is for! I like to have lots of gain for my leads.

I know what your talking about...... when you have 2 loves in your live nothing is better than bitter sweet is it?

aaaaanyway.. enough sap.

There has to be people here with Other Dimarzio PU's in thier guitars. and i'd really like sugguestions from those of you out there that dont even have expierence with the PU's cuz most of you probably know more about them than me.

Didnt Iain want to put EVO's in his JS? i think i remember that from a while ago.... coulda been someone else though. i have been concidering the neck EVO but i dont know how it would match with the FRED.....
