1 Toxophilite 8 months ago So I had a good run in rock trio rehearsal tonight with the 52 Electro 2 I've been restoring. What a fine beast so far.I've never played a guitar with Dynasonics for a full rehearsal and I enjoyed, particularly, the articulation every string has. They do hit distortion pedals very dfferently though. The pedal needs more level than with hilotrons which is interesting. Normally when I play a drastically different guitar I can't endure it for more than a few songs but this time I played it all night and enjoyed it. We were playing a lot of clean pop, some latin and some heavier distorted rock/alt rock.I'm trying to tweak the bottom end vs the top end. This I've heard is a Dynasonic thing.Right now I have the bass string pickup poles BURIED almost 1/8" inch in the pickup while the high strings are almost 1/8" above and the bass is still a little too dominating.My plan is to make new angled shims for the pickups that mostly lift the treble side. Ed was saying the tortoise shell ones can have problems so it's not a big deal. Also they're very brittle. With the treble side closer I should get a bit more girth to the treble sound while the bass strings will have a little less boom Here's a picture of how they were set up for this eve's rehearsal .Pretty extreme and I like a nice bottom on a pickup!I might also flip the neck pickup around orientating the poles of both of them like hilotrons. Any other tips/ideas from those in the know?
