So, I went and did it. Short picstory, and I wanted to show people how fucking awesome Banjomike on ebay is.
What do we have here?
Need a tool to open this...
Check out all the goodies!
Wait, didn't I buy something? Oh yeah...
Bye bye Blackouts, you were good, but you're just not nice, using those batteries!
"Old wiring pic"(forgot to take one)
[Yes, I went to the solid black knobs.]
These pickups are pretty nice, the Liquifire is less compressed than the blackout neck, more overtones. The Crunchlab is a little noisy, not near as bad as the DS7 I had(maybe they worked out the bugs?). It's a got a lot more mids than the BO, which I love. The bass is a bit big though, I might try spinning it around to see how that sounds.
Overall I'm glad I made the switch, as I'll never have to worry about the battery dieing and my tone going to shit because of it. It's also nice that all my guitars have fucking Dimarzios now.
Banjomikez is the shit! That looks great, the new JPs sound awesome with those pickups in there so I'd bet in that guitar they sound killer too. Definitely dig the Crunchlab more than the drop-sonic too!
