Sold the Custom Custom and '59 that came stock with the V-1. They looked badass (nickel covers!) but just weren't cutting it for me tone-wise. Way too vintage, not so much in output, but in voicing.
So I picked me up some Distortions!
The guitar was sitting here like this for over 2 weeks. Stringless, and pickupless, poor guy!
Just as an FYI, Schecter wiring is super fucking tidy. Seriously the nicest, neatest wiring I've ever seen on a production guitar..
Also, luckily most of the intricate wiring is already done "off the pickups" so to speak. i.e. the coil tap (not to mention the two separate volume pots) are already all wired up, so it was just a matter of wiring the pickups to their 3 respective points, and it was super easy since I'd already come from a set of Seymour Duncans.
And they're in!
And back in all its heavenly glory!
Been playing it through the triple rec for the last hour, fucking huge tone! Lots of sturdy mids, big low end (but tight) and a nice sheen in the top end. This is my Drop C guitar, and that tuning (and this guitar, in particular) really suit these pickups.
Awesome, man. A lot of my guitars are set up in Drop C. I bet that is just a killer fun setup all the way around.
