  1. Pickups & wiring
    Sooo, I know this has been debated many times on many forums but I have understood that Blackouts have a bit more bottom-end. Considering Basswood does not produce much bottom-end, anyone have experienced success with one or the other? I play an ibanez RG Thanks!

Under the stock pickups I found that there are small maple blocks glued to the body that prevent the much...

    Hey guys! I just installed my Duncan Blackouts 7 in place of the EMG 707's that were in my Schecter Loomis C7. If you want an audio tone comparison I'm sorry I don't have any sound clips. The recording options available to me at this moment are hideous so there wasn't much point. but I can...
