I had a DGT in the neck slot of my '05 AV '62 RI Tele....sounded so good!
This thread really makes me want to put an Abraxas into the bridge of my 594. I'd not take considered keeping the neck LT but that's certainly an option.
I put a 85/15 bridge with the LT neck in my McCarty. That guitar does what I want it to now... but the Abraxas bridge might be an even better choice since it’s still vintage voiced and not as modern sounding as the 85/15. Seems like lots of folks pair the Abraxas bridge with a Mule in the neck... so it should sound fantastic with the LT.
Sorry, only just seen this. The Abraxas bridge in my Bernie makes it sound like I've always thought a Les Paul should sound. It's a vintage sound but with just the right amount of extra oomph. I find it difficult to accept that anyone would find them lifeless.
I used to own a Bernie with a set of Mules. Would never call the Mules lifeless. In fact, it was my best sounding guitar beating out a 2013 SG Deluxe and a 408 Signature Limited. The Abraxas pups are just hotter versions of the Mules, so I reckon they would be a pretty kick-a$$ set of pickups.
I put a set of Abraxas in my Bernie. Best choice, ever. Those pick ups were the sh!t
It was me, I said dude to Casi. I couldn’t help it, I got excited with Casi’s selection pickup contenders. As for the lifeless comments, I’ve never heard it before this thread. They sounded great on my CU22.
Hmmm. Lots of dudes with Bernie’s.
Do I need a Bernie?
I think I might.
I need one to put pickups in.
IMO probably the best SE ever made. I tore mine down to the rafters (so to speak), built it back up, and it’s a great guitar that quells my desire for a LP or a SC. Seriously fills the desire for that kind of guitar.
Throwing down $600 for the most aesthetically pleasing one you find, or around $400 for a black one with no veneer, would probably be the most satisfying under-a-grand guitar purchase you could make.
Picture added for dramatic effect.
I approve of this message.
You do, definitely.
Nailed it. Bernie, hands down, best SE, eva!
Now ya'll enablers are making me consider a Bernie.....
"Consider"? Obviously, we're not doing a good enough job!
It's in the queue...but there are a few before it at this point in time.
$450!!! What are y’all waiting for?!?!
