    Both sets just arrived in the mail. I’ll have the Dimarzio PAF 36th anniversary set installed in the PRS SE Zach Myers this weekend.

    While the stock pups are actually very nice pickups for stock... they are still missing a little something in the dynamics department and I have to fight a bit more to get those harmonics that tend to come with ease on my Les Paul. Hoping these will remedy that. I checked out every review I could find and while nearly all of them were quite positive... this demo (in a PRS SE Zach Myers) put it over the top for me. I have a feeling I’m going to love these. Would have loved to have stuck with the zebra pattern, but Dimarzio puts their two creams inside where I prefer the look of the creams outside with the black inside. Oh well... it will look sweet with the all cream.



    The Cavaliers were a no-brainer. I loved the last set I got (Nashville Lion w/ Lion King) which turned my Classic Vibe Custom into my favorite guitar. So I got a set for my Classic Vibe Butterscotch Blonde, but went with the Huge Lion and Fat Lion King set this time for a little extra something different.

    These will be another few weeks before I install... waiting to get everything here so I can upgrade it all at once... doing the aluminum/brass saddles combo and Obsidian 4-way switch & wiring kit like I did on my other tele. Also getting a custom leather pickguard done in memory of my wife.
