GuitarGoat Posted May 25, 2007 Report Share Posted May 25, 2007 Hey guys, I've been hanging around here a little while now and finally got a name. I just had a few questions for you guys if you have any experience on any of this stuff. This is for my second guitar, a guitar styled like a Dean ML. My first one was a super strat with a headstock kind of like an ESP reversed, EMG-81s, custom wiring with an EMG Afterburner, Original Floyd Rose Bridge, 24 fret rosewood fretboard, full maple neckthru construction. A real shred guitar. Anyways, my next one i want to be a Dean ML Styled guitar like I said. I want it to be full maple again because the sound is killer, real bright but with enough low end for me. I was wondering if this would be way to heavy for the ML body because the strat is 10 pounds if im correct and the body is even thinner than the normal 1-3/4". Could I hollow out chambers on the body without affecting to much like strength and would the sound not be as bright as the solid body? Another thing is the strap button placement. I have heard that the button being too high will make the guitar unbalanced so I am not sure if i should put it on the heel or the upper horn that hardly exists on this guitar. One last thing: has anyone here compared the Bill Lawrence 500XL pickup to the newer Seymour Duncan Dimebucker? I hear they are both good but can't decide and don't know the difference totally.
