Ignoring my obvious GAS, I have yet another Schecter Banshee 7. If you remember a few months ago, I had bought another Banshee 7 in black. I liked a lot of things about that guitar, but it had issues from how the previous owner treated it that kind of ruined it a bit for me. The neck never felt as solid as I'd like (shifted in the neck pocket a bit and I just couldn't fix it with shims or anything outside of gluing it), there was quite a bit of finish scratches, the wood under the volume knob had been busted from being hit, and the frets on the upper part of the neck on the treble side were raised up enough that the high e would get caught under them from time to time (the leveling was fine on them though). Also, I can't fucking stand the Nazgul/Sentient combo. Just never sounded good on the low strings and the neck just sounded bad on every string. I knew I liked the guitar a bit but I wanted one that was better taken care of. Well I got that and a pick up upgrade in one. Plus it's red. Specs Schecter Banshee 7 Passive Alder Body With Quilted Maple Top Ebony fret board 5 piece maple and walnut neck 12" - 16" compound radius neck Graphtech nut Hipshot Bridge Guitarmory Atlas Alinco Pick ups I bought this guitar off Reverb after "window shopping" one night. The big selling point was they came with Guitarmory pick ups. I've been really interested in trying them out and holy shit could I not be more happy. These are some of the best sounding pick ups I've ever used. They have an amazing grind to them without being harsh. Since I haven't seen many sound demos of them, I've recorded some quick and simple riffs with the bridge and a bit of lead with some gain. These clips are recorded with Helix Native using the 5150 amp with a TS9 boost in helix and a Precision Drive. The IR I'm using is a zilla fat boy 2x12 with a low cut to 130 hz and a high pass to 14.6hz on the IR block. No post eq or anything outside of delay for the neck Here's the bridge (just a single track to try to get a more realistic idea of how they sound) https://soundcloud.com/frostbite-108667210/guitarmory-atlas-alinco-bridge And here's the neck (my lead playing is terrible please excuse the mistakes haha) https://soundcloud.com/frostbite-108667210/guitarmory-atlas-neck-delay So far, this is the tone I've heard in my head for so long. Amazing grit while still having some clarity on bigger chords. Honey moon phase may still be in full effect but we'll see. I'm a pretty big pessimist and it takes a lot to blow me away haha I'm in the process of selling my other Banshee for what I paid for it and the extra I paid for this guitar compared to the previous is less then what the pick ups would cost new so it kind of just made sense to get this.
