Compared to a light Fender guitar or an all mahogany SG where the initial attack may contain plenty of brightness, that upper content decays more rapidly and leaves you with a mellower, darker note that rings out long. Very interesting.
Precisely why I've been getting re-interested in my Schecter neck-through (maple, with mahogany wings). Monday night, I intended to just change the tone cap from .047 to .022, then got completely disgusted with the pickups (OEM: Duncan JB & Jazz), and and wound up gutting the whole thing
Stayed up into the wee hours, swapping the pups out and trying my old strat pups in the H-H positions, wired passively (w/o the buffer). 100% improvement in clarity, but with the great sustain of the neck-thru and heavier woods (compared with my strat)! Next will be re-connecting the loop and buffer...
Ruklick (one "c") told me a few days ago he was doing this loan, and I thought he'd just totally lost it... hope I get to see it in action when they come through PDX.
