I've got an Edwards E-FR-130GT (Forest model), maple/walnut neck-thru, ebony board, ash wings, OFR. Came with a JB/59 combo stock, they sound surprisingly good to me but as any gear whore knows, something else might sound better.
So I'm leaning towards a set of Dimarzios from Banjomikez, I'm thinking Crunch Lab/Liquifire but I'm seeking input before placing the order.
- Has anyone tried this combo in a maple/ash/ebony guitar? I know woods aren't everything but I'm curious to hear from anyone who may have tried something similar.
- How does the Crunch Lab compare to the D-Sonic in your experience? I have DS/AN combos in two of my 7-strings and they are the cat's ass. I wanted to try something different this time in the Edwards, hence why I'm thinking CL/LF.
- Tone I want: Thick, grindy, not-super-tight. Something like Necroticism-era Carcass. I play into a gsp1101 > TS100 > VHT 2x12.
Will the CL/LF combo get me there? Won't be too bright? I welcome any suggestions, I've read enough posts here to know that you guys know your shit. This guitar is also getting an all-black hardware makeover, including shiny new OFR & Schaller Minis. Should be tight.
Thanks for any input, cheers.
