Ok #guitarists and #guitar players of #instagram , I need help deciding between these two beats right here.
Both are 7 string guitars and there's only a $100 difference in price. The #Jackson has #seymourduncan pickups and the the #Ibanez has #dimarzio pickups and an extra inch.
Jackson = 25.5"
Ibanez = 26.5"
Here are the links to them both.
A true workhorse all around, here is my Gibson Les Paul Studio in green swirl burst. Originally equipped with a 50's fat baseball bat of a neck, at first it was a little uncomfortable getting use to it so I decided to have my friend Doctor Guitar in Fountain Valley California shave it for me. I added what I believe to be one of the smoothest, and easiest maintained tremolos on the market @stetsbar tremolo, Grover locking tuners, custom truss rod cover, Seymour Duncans 59 and JB, and a mirror pickguard. Now this guitar plays and sounds even better!! #gibson#gibsonlespaul#gibsonlespaulstudio#stetsbar#grovertuners#guitarporn#guitarist#gibsonsofinstagram#seymourduncan#gibsonusa
New #seymourduncan custom pickup! Excited to put it in my Ibanez. I wasn't quite bonding with the Bareknuckle Aftermath pickups that came with the guitar. They don't sound full to me. Going to swap out the neck for the typical 59'.
Here’s a quick clip of Pancake’s stock bridge pickup up against the wonderful @seymourduncanpickups Antiquity I. I’m editing together a full video comparison with the amp mic’d up, but I have a lot of other work to finish first. My impressions of the Antiquity pickup are thus: it’s an excellent pickup that gives me exactly the things I like about the stock pickups, but with added output and low-end. See, the reason I swapped in new pickups for the old ones is that over the summer, I started feeling like Pancake was missing something. By far my best instrument, but finally the low end was staring to bleed away, and I found that to get the consistent output I like, I had to dig in a lot more than I like. You can see that in these clips, I’m hitting harder on the stock pickups and slightly more relaxed with the Duncans. The lows are tighter and more up front, and the highs are slightly subdued, which is great for me. Also, I’m playing with the tone control on 10 here, which almost never happens for me; I live at 6 or 7, and when I need more twang. Oh, and you’ll be pleased to know that I actually added treble for this demo so it could be useful for other people. Instead of setting Presence and Treble at 0 on the Marshall, I’m on 4 on both. 😎
Full good-sounding demo coming soon!
