So, I'm currently building a new fiddle. Kind of a twin brother to Zebra in America.
Swamp ash body
Hard maple neck
Madagascar ebony fretboard
Through a recto
I'm wanting the best pickup for a progressive metal tone. Think the tone from Mirror and Lie off of Awake from DT. I love the tone of blazes in basswood on that album, and would like something similar. I am also leaning toward alnico because i have all ceramic pups and they are a little harsh in the highs. If you do recommend something ceramic, try to not suggest something too harsh in the highs.
Crunch lab/liquafire? Full shred set? Duncan custom/jazz? Blaze set? Go!
