mutha f*ckers...

ok, enough profanity...the other guitarist i play with bough himself an epi explorer after wanting one for so long. but now a few months later, he doesnt like it. a bit of buyer's remorse. now he would rather have a PRS SE double cutaway.

he claims that the explorer is too warm and he wants a brighter sound for the lead playing (since he is predominantly lead). i told him, mahogony+big body/lots of wood is gonna give you that warm sound. so i said, maybe a new bucker could help you out.

so if anyone has a suggestion for a nice bridge bucker to brighten up his lead playing.

btw, we play mostly modern progressive rock/metal like Tool, Opeth, Mastodon but also have some alternative influences like the Foo Fighters, Nirvana ect....

DiMa Evolution is a duh for brighter sound. PAF Pro in the bridge is kinda iffy, mine sounds warm but my dad's sound bright, same body wood and all that in consideration.

Bare Knuckle Nailbomb perhaps. Expensive but bright, airy, and thick all at the same time.
