Well as you know i built the swirled strat recently and i just cant be bothered in doing the grand pickup hunt and all that crap or waiting for custom pickups.
So i've thought about just grabbing some EMGS most like 81/60. However this is the first Alder bodied guitar with a full on maple neck ive ever owned/played and i only have experience with basswood and mahogany and a brief bit with swamp ash.
Whats the verdict? Will it sound like the hammer of a thunder god? Should I buy nine? or shall i just not bother?
Any other recommendations are welcome as this alder/maple business is a completely alien thing to me.
And tonally i just pretty much want some kickass 80s high gain tones.
Bah this should have been in the pickups section, Can somebody move it for me please?
