I Would Cannibal Corpse That Bad Boy All Day But That Is Me. In All Truth, It Would Probably Benefit From A Pickup Change For That Music But Still, I Would Rock That No Problem.Hi. My name is Danny and I am a Metalhead.
I own an SC245 with 57/08 pickups and I love it.
I've also got some high gain amps.
But I would never try playing Norwegian black metal or any of those other fast paced over the top super-distorted kinds of Metal with this guitar as I believe it is much better suited to classic hard rock and classic Heavy Metal. If you want to do that fast & heavy Death Metal stuff, that's why PRS made the Mark Holcomb model. Much better tool for that job.
That looks awesomeSo I lost that one Stripped 58 because the guy decided it was too difficult to ship.
I ended up getting this one. Great guy, has a large guitar collection and many sat in their cases for years since purchase. He bought this 2012 Stripped 58 new and it hasn't bene used since he mostly plays other style of guitars.
It's got the 57/08 pickups.
Ill give a good go with the band but I'm curious if any of you have used the 59/09 in the bridge position of this pickup.
I don't know if this guitar has split coils or not, reverse polarity, etc.
I prefer Alnico V pickups and this will be my only guitar with an Alnico II bridge pickup.
