I had been a member of the Flying-V squad for a while, but I wanted to share my new toy, added to my family:

I went to a guitar store called GUITAR CENTER (with over 800 guitars on display) in Nashville. The attendants, who were very helpful and accommodating, let me try the following axes:

ESP LTD EC-1000


Gibson USA LP


Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT


And decided to get the (obviously)








The Gibson USA LP IMHO has the best sound, way better than the LTD Eclipse (but haven't been able to compare it with an ESP Eclipse). But I am a heavily Megadeth-inspired guitar player hence I got the Dean instead.

So far so good. :aok:

This is his brother which I left back home sa Pinas




Just wanted to add:

awesome purchase, mustaine factor! :)

Thanks for appreciating.

I'd like to share my experience with the attendants of Guitar Center in Nashville. First I went there, one attendant was very accommodating, showing me a lot of stuffs and I said "no thank you I am just looking around". Despite of telling him that, he kept on showing more stuffs to me and even handed me the LTD EC-1000 should I wanted to test it. I am amazed on how good their customer service is. Once I started testing the EC-1000 on an amplifier of my choice (they let me chose what amp I wanted to use for testing), I didn't noticed that he placed a couple more guitars by my side should I wanted to test more axes. Those guitars were more than a thousand dollars apiece.

After 30 minutes of playing like I was in heaven, I handed them over the guitars and said thank you, I might be back. The attendant gave me his calling card. I mean, what the... None of them discriminated a customer doing just window shopping.   :mrgreen:

Without promising them anything, I returned a couple of weeks later and purchased the Dean VMNT. I told them that I'll be flying off to Manila soon and then showed me a bunch of more guitar cases ideal for flying, explained to me the science of flying with a guitar, gave me tips on how to secure it, and a few bubble wraps. Upon checking out from their cashier, I asked the attendant if I could have a guitar pick for free and he automatically handed me over a handful of it.

Wala na akong masabi. As in WOW for customer service!

How I wish guitar shops have attendants like these in our country. Super amazing!

I can't forget my experience at LYRIC MOA, when I asked one of the attendants how much was the Edwards Alexi Scythe, and the reply was instantly given back to me without hesitation "MAHAL YAN SIR".

The moral of the story is that, each person that comes in your store is a potential buyer, may not be today but who knows when. The nicer you are to them, the more GAS will be induced. Just my two cents.  :money:

Hi.

Got a 90s epiphone korean v. The stock pups sound anemic for drop C, medyo muddy and loose siya. I use a set of not even slinkies, cant remember specific gauges. Sa pod xt ko siya gamit specifically the spinal puppet amp sim.

What pickups can you recommend for tight riffing? Dunno kasi the wood type of this geetar, seems a bit too light nga eh.

Thanks sir!

You might wanna try the following:

1. Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1

http://www.seymourduncan.com/images/products/electric/humbuckers/AHB-1.jpg

2. Seymour Duncan Dave Mustaine LiveWire

http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/humbucker/high-output/lwmust_livewire/

Perfect for down-tuned high gained setup. LiveWire Mustaines may be a bit less hot than the EMG's but had a much thicker tone. The lows and mids of the Mustaines are greater than the EMG 81, which I think is perfect for C tuning. It will sound better too if you use the strings with gauges 13-17-26-36-46-56.

Just my two cents.

nakakainis yun bantay ah.

i think our local music stores SHOULD train their frontliners on PROPER CUSTOMER handling. i know this is a little bit OT na. pero the best customer service i had was in audiophile pioneer, thanks to sir lito. kahit araw araw ako nagwiwindow shopping dun date, he was very accomodating, for a time suki na ko sa kanya on guitar setups and repairs and accesories.

Up for sir Lito! He was the one who installed the Seymour Duncan Dave Mustaine LiveWire on my Jackson King V JS32T (the lowest end King V). After what he did, my King V sounded bad a**!   :razz:

Mustaine! That's badass!

Was actually thinkin of passive pups, either jb or distortion for the bridge. and just disconnect the tone pot. pero i'm kinda curious sa blackouts. i do have emg81/85 on a prs and emg81/81 on an ibby, both mahogany. And i do love that metal tone i get from active pups. diba si mustaine naka jb din dati? I worry kasi where to shoehorn the battery.

Any ideas as to the kind of wood ng epi ko? Its a bit light and soft. Di kaya plywood? Hehe. I read sa mga forums na may mga plywood epi na galing korea during the 90s, pero bihira info and mostly sketchy info. Maybe i should try scrapin off the paint to find out.

Seymour Duncan Mustaine LiveWire is practically a set of SH-4 JB and SH-2n Jazz pickups but are "ACTIVE". So imagine the punch it can give you. Mr. Lito of Audiophile Pioneer was able to properly make room for the battery when he installed the LiveWire to my King V JS32T. I think kaya naman yan with an Epi V.

As for your other question, that I can not answer. Di ako maalam with Epiphones but I'll help you by me trying to google it in the next few days. Can you post a picture of your Epi V? Thanks!

@mustaine_factor,



thanks bro! dami kasing info na magkakaiba. nothin definitive on a 90s epi V. think the actives will be the best for tightness. plus the body wood won't be the weakest link in the tone, if it does prove to be a laminate body. otherwise i'm still on the fence with the passives, either a hot paf, distortion, jb or even a rail bucker of some sort like a L500xl, dimebucker or x2n! plano ko dito to take away the tone pot and neck pup from the circuit, and just have volume pot and an uberhot bridge pup!

pero that hot jb tone with the mustaine set sounds like what i'd like to get. megadeth rules! \m/

Hey guys, anyone here use a V with the output jack on the front face of the guitar? usually near the bottom wing tip.
I was wondering- parang awkward ang design- the cable would be very exposed to movement when playing live. and when hooked through the strap, makes the guitar look weird (nag-shape na triangle)

sorry pag medyo vague (hope i make sense)
Anyways, any thoughts on these?
