Road King replied to the forum post ESP Phoenix pickups. Hmmm

I like the EMG 60A or the SD Pearly Gates in the neck. Maybe the EMG 57/66 set could give you the mix of active and passive properties you want. The Dimarzios already mentioned are also a good choice.......MORE »

Norton in the bridge, Air Norton in the neck.  36th Anniversary PAF in the neck would be good too, but it'll be a touch muddier.......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post How much are custom painted guitars>?

Figure the base price for an ESP Custom Shop guitar is around $4000 USD, options and hardware, custom inlays and graphics increase the price.  If you'd like a better answer, fill out a custom order form here and bring......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Tones Too Warm!

I made this last summer, a few days after receiving a new amp.  There are a few places where it drops out to just single instrument sounds.  Neither of the guitars are EMG, and based on what you've said, they're......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Cat chew toy

Yeah, you could have it sanded down a bit and rebuffed.  You may even just try rubbing it with an old, soft piece of rubber (part of some people's sanding/smoothing process during finishing) to even out the extra "relic"......MORE »

Recorded sound (especially close miked) doesn't always mimic the sound in the room.  Looking into some of the specifics of your cab, another thing to experiment with is to maybe close the back of the cab.  It might......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Tones Too Warm!

It doesn't sound like a wiring issue to me.  I'd suspect all that's good.  Strings may have a bit to play on the twang/bite, but it's not going to be drastic enough to make the Horizon sound significantly more like......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Tones Too Warm!

Yeah, that's pretty much how I'd expect those two guitars to sound when run through the same setup.  It seems like the EMG sound (and perhaps humbuckers in general?) isn't what you're looking for.  The mahogany......MORE »
