If you run it though a solid state amp.



I think wood may make a difference but not as much as people think it does which is why people do poor in blind tests.

To be honest arguing about it is pointless, no one is going to convince anyone either way and using hypothetical situations as a basis for an argument wouldn't even hold up on Jeremy Kyle.

EDIT:

OliOsbourne you reminded me of this stone guitar

You didn't prove shit, you just ignored what I said. You're not saying anything that's above my comprehension, bro. Again, get over yourself.

Alright, yes, fingerboard material makes a difference with sustain and other things similar to that. I'm not saying material doesn't make a difference; just not a difference with tone.

No shit. I never said anything about sustain. Learn to read.

Acoustically, wood makes a difference. Strings will always make a difference. But it's just logic. Since you really know what your talking about, tell me how body wood and fingerboard wood changes the tone.


Firstly, grammar doesn't matter much in forums, I'm not sure what gave you the false impression that it did, and secondly,

Take for example, two unplugged guitars, one mahogany and one maple, the mahogany guitar is going to sound darker when it is unplugged (this will happen for most guitars when comparing mahogany to maple.

Take your guitar, strum all six (or seven w/e) strings open, and lightly touch your finger against the back of your fretboard. You are going to feel your fret-board resonating with little vibrations. Wood is used because WOOD RESONATES. That's why a flute made out of wood sounds different than a plastic flute. The body of the guitar resonates a lower frequency. Its why they're called woodwind instruments not dogshitwind or plasticwind. This resonating of the wood changes the tone of the guitar as when the string begins to vibrate the wood resonates affecting how the strings sound when strumming, the when the strings are vibrating, the pickup, picks up the vibration of the string, and amplifies it (like you said).

not sure actually, they're both pretty hot.

Tighter bass?

the duncan probably has less bass. whether that means the dimarzio is less tight, though...

Better leads?

super distortion probably

I know this isn't quite related to your question, but here's a pretty awesome vid comparing different Duncans:

IMO from that video:

Blackout (Standard) > Distortion > EMTY Blackout > Blackout (Metal) > Invader > Gus G. Fire Blackout > Full Shred > 59/Custom Hybrid > Custom > Alternative 8 > JB > DimeBucker

Any idea if there's a similar thing for DiMarzios?

I never realised there were so many different Blackouts!

I agree with your top 2 choices, but I'd put the Custom 3rd though.
