So, I've been playing my Epi Dot Studio stock for a few weeks now and have been having alot of fun with it. Originally I'd planned to put a set of GFS Dream 180's into it when I have the electronics re-done on it with stacked pots so I get both a Volume and Tone control.
Tonight I hauled out the Ohm Meter and took some reasongs. The neck comes in at 8.4 and the bridge at a whopping 13.6.
Well, that explains why learning some heavier stuff lately I happened to gravitate towards that guitar.
But the downside is that it's got me re-thinking the GFS' pickups, considering the bridge clocks in at 8.3.
I could deal with a little less heat in the bridge, but truth be told I really kinda like it that way. The bridge was a little gritter than I was used to, but still I liked it. The neck felt a little underpowered and muddy. I could deal with one of those two, but not both.
So now I'm totally confounded as to what to put in there.....
Should I got with a C5 for the bridge and maybe something a little hotter for the neck? Should I take one of the pots before it gets installed and make it a no-load at maximum to open it up a bit? Is an A2 really what I should be looking at versus an A5 which seems to dominate the higher output pickups?
