Thanks to Jap Axes for that
I will pm you what guitars and pickups I used


The Phantom smells disappointment.


Don't take offense to this.... but it's a bit tedious with the third party talk, the "here's me playing, guess the pickups", etc. Again, I'm not meaning any offense - it would be nice to know who you really are, talk in a normal manner because you obiviously know your way around a guitar and you hold alot of knowledge we can all benefit from.... but it's like reading from a comic book some time.

Oh Marcus,
you've been a stick in the mud since day 1


First of all this isn't as forum for quarreling (I'm sure Ned wouldn't appreciate it). but I really love the fact that someone gives a damn to be doing this in the first place (Way to go Ned!!!!!)
We appreciate that you've created this forum and everything you've done, although we shoulld acknowledge it more often.

I posted my prized possession # 1 Tokai Love Rock
trying to find out what model and what year it could be
and your first response to me was a sarcastic "Its a guitar"

and that kind of continued down the line.
So it's that kind of behavior that makes me stay anonymous.

And second of all I speak in the 3rd person just for fun that's all. Your the only on it seems to bother. Life's too short. You'll know who I am soon enough. Chill out.

I choose to remain anonymous at the moment and I have that prerogative. And I have my reasons why. There are some forum members who do know who I am and respect my privacy.
And I promise I will never engage in this kind of pissing match. I just thought I should state my claim.

So please don't take offense to any of this. It's all in good fun, and if you don't like it you don't have to read or respond to my posts.
I will reveal my identity eventually but not just yet. And by the way, I was in your backyard in June, so for all I know we may have met.


So where was I, what was the order of the files that you liked?

Woaoo Amazing!!

What I find interesting is that in my ears the BG pups sound sensibly different when mounted on the two guitars while the Dry Z's sound more similar.

Was it also your feeling when you hear them live?

If yes, would one say Dry Z's will sound great in any guitar, but yield more or less always the same sound while BGs may be less predictable but will be more revealing of the soul of the guitar?

BTW I like those blind tests, one should also try to compare ALS vs. LS or reborn vs. Love rock, etc.....

Hey Oligo, your right. The BG's react differebtly in different guitars. I've only had the leisure to put the Dry Z's in these 2 so far and I would venture to say that they sound how they sound and I believe that was refelected in both guitars. I would love to do some live clips of both to see what results we would get.

So that should be the next shootout.

ALS vs LS vs Reborn etc , great idea.

Hey Oligo, thanks for being a stand up guy and taking the time.
your opinion is appreciated.

Regards,,
The Phantom

That's rather haughty of you to say. In the almost 9 years here on this forum, I'm sure most would say that I'm rather even keeled, post substantive information and have a sense of humor. I'm not prone to sarcastic or smart assed remarks - I'd love to see that post you refer too because I can't find it - however if I did say that, then you might have caught me on a bad day as we mortals sometimes have. But I did find plenty of "nice guitar" comments from me on your photos.

Who's quarreling?? I gave an honest comment and you obviously took offense.

Bro, if you get that easliy offended on this very civil forum compared to some of the others out there that would chew you up and have to hide behind anonymity, that's pretty funny. It also appears that you've picked up your toys and left the sandbox before:

Oh, and if you're in my back yard again, look me up, let me shake your hand and buy you a beer. That's how we do it here in Texas.

Hey Oligo, I got to really try the Dry Z's live last night and they are great.
There's no doubt these pickups sound fantastic, but IMHO $600?
Most guys can get something for a fraction of the cost where they would not know the difference. However if you are a tone aficionado you will seek these out but again its the most expensive pickup Ive had to buy.
Again I still need more time and trying it out in different guitars to get an even more in depth detail review.I also want to see see how the Z's sit in a mix as a solo track, that will be interesting to.
