I hope its ok to post one selfs playing on an SG once in a while:
I wanted for so long to record my solo guitar version on this song.
"Love for Sale" is a song by Cole Porter introduced by Kathryn Crawford
in the musical The New Yorkers, which opened on Broadway on December 8,
1930 and closed...
Yes, I hear that the 490´s are more mid and narrow sounding (less bass and less crystal highs - good for drive) and 57 more open sounding with more bass and high freq for pleasant cleans. With a good eq tweaking on a drive pedal the 57 can get nearly the same mid, anyhow. It´s harder to tweak...
You don´t write your style, but for me, that need a full, clean and sweet sound, it helped to switch to 57 both PU´s.
They work for drive chrunch up to blues lead as well.
I use this POLE PIECE height setup:
I would like to present the flip side of my blues/jazz playing.
A standard tunes. "I Remember You".
There is some room ambience from the Iphone, but in a way I like that better than recording to PC so all the ghost notes and finger sounds can be heard..
Yes, if you are experienced. Still I know a lot of players who don´t do that, and change this and that for a lot of money and to no avail.
But then again most likely, it might not be the case for DC Guitars..
Before spending so much money, have you tried to make your "cheap SG" sound and play better checking the SG specs ?
If not, I recommend you learn the way to do it (you tube) or make a luthier do it.
I mean, no matter which price and year built it matters the same: Truss rod adjustement , string...
Here is a track where I think I hear the mid switch sound of SG.
Very strat-like but more open.
The overall sound is a little more "loose" than a LP would sound.
Im more and more sure that he is using the SG on this album..
Hi SG friends
Im a new SG player, new to the forum here, and works a lot with the mid PU position.
It might have been up here , but I would love to hear your experience with it.
Where and how do you use it ?
