It's been 2 weeks since I switched to a Pearly Gates neck in the ole SG and I'm
not digging it. It sounds kind of brittle and harsh. I have it teamed with a Rio Grande BBQ, which sounds GREAT distorted and not so hot clean.
So I'm thinking of either plugging my 59's back into both spots, or maybe going in an entirely new direction and getting either a set of Phat Cats or maybe '57 Classics from Gibson.
I want a really crisp, vintage sound out of the neck. Something that will be right at home playing blues, rockabilly, etc. but will fatten up when I roll the volume tone down. I don't use the neck much with gain, 'cept when I'm going for the Clapton Cream vibe.
