Hey guys, I've just joined to this site and loving it so far!
But onto the issue.....
I have an Ibanez RGA7, it's a very comfortable guitar and I love playing it but the sound is very loose and flabby.
The original stock pickups the guitar came with were absolutely horrible so I swapped them out for a Crunch Lab/Liquifire combo but it's still very flabby sounding.
Is there anything I can do to tighten up the sound? I've been messing around with the pickup height and adjusting the pole pieces but still no luck.
Ideally I'd love to get as tight as Periphery's tone.
Any help would be much appreciated!.
what gauge strings are you using at the moment? i don't know much about 7 strings and string gauges, but it might be a place to start, and someone with more experience might be able to advise if a change of strings could help.
also, if pickups have made little difference, it could be your amp/settings. what are you using there?
i think i heard somewhere that periphery use some quite extreme EQ settings - ie bass down very low to get rid of the flub, quite a lot of mids etc.
