I have a c5 in it now for the bridge and kinda like it but am wondering if the guitar is too dark for the lack of mids of the c5. I wonder if the custom custom is too midrangey? Any oppinions or experiences? I also have a 2004 les paul studio I am wondering about. It is even darker than the 1994 classic goldtop I have. The c5 sounded great in my Schecter C1+ because the mids were more prominent than the les pauls but I am forced to sell it on ebay to pay for the 2004 studio. Check out the auction on ebay under c1 plus or inkblottest.
