Hi, how difficult is it to install a push-pull coil split on this guitar?
Hey F F, all depends on your individual skill level. Shouldn't take more than five minutes for someone who knows that they are doing.
Can this guitar do clean tone as well? I wanna sound super chill and then scare the shit out of people.
Hey Guitar kid, the Black Winter are ceramic pickups so they have a fairly high output level but will sound great clean or overdriven.
What’s the story on the fret markers? Do they have to be charged to glow and, if so, how?
Hey Kay, this will use Photoluminescent plastic, which when it absorbs light, will GLOW!! You can use a flashlight to charge these before playing. UV light charges the material faster and for a longer duration.
Thank you for that info!
Now make this exact same guitar with a 22 fret scale and a bevelled edge at the top instead of that sharp archtop edge and you'll have made the perfect guitar!
Thanks for your suggestion! I'll get right on it!
Excellent! Put a super thin C shredder neck on it and I’m down for two pre-orders!
Seriously, it’s a great guitar!
Thanks for the suggestion Kay!
What's the difference between this Blackened Black Winter and the Standard Black Winter?
Hey Alexis, our black winter pickups will have a black Seymour Duncan logo.
Thanks Carl, so there is no difference sound wise?
Hey Alexis, the color of the logo will not affect the sound of the pickup, they'll be voiced the same.
This guitar is just beautiful, I like every part of it, the minimalist layout, the premium feel from the black satin finish, the volume knob solely, neck without inlays, everything is just perfect.
They say "less is more" and as a minimalist, this guitar just fits perfectly for me.
I own a discontinued model LTD EC-50 black satin and I'm seriously considering upgrading to this model.
As I enjoy playing clean sometimes, by chance, in the future, will you produce this exact model with a neck pickup included?
Hey Devan, glad you enjoy the styling of this. As for a neck pickup...probably not, the main allure of this series is the stripped down minimalist features so we will probably stick with the single pickup configuration for the Black Metal series.
And is this guitar comfortable to play in D standard or down to Drop C? My EC-50 is a lower line of LTD EC guitars and it sounds great.
Hey Devan, all of our instruments will be comfortable to play in nearly any tuning. We ship out instruments setup in E standard so it would be necessary to have this setup to your specific tuning and string gauges afterwards. We always recommend having a professional perform this type of work if you are unfamiliar with the practice.
