Greetings All! Thanks for looking in and many more thanks for any future replies!
I've decided to throw down some bucks on an SX Ursa 2…partly to finally have an SX of my own, but also as a possible mod platform. I've got an SD Quarter Pounder Jazz neck pickup just itchin' for a home and I'm planning on putting on a maple neck/rosewood fretboard with pearloid blocks. Also, I may throw in some conductive paint, if needs be. I have some more artistic
mods in mind down the road, but that's for another thread.
Here's the two models I'm debating between; http://www.rondomusic.com/URSA2MNASHMRD.HTML http://www.rondomusic.com/URSA2HUMmncar.html
My questions are pretty straightforward;
Would I be better off getting the Ursa 2 Humbucker instead? If not/if so, why? What kind of sound would I expect to hear from either?
Overall, I like a rather aggressive tone, rich in mid-range, but not at the expense of the lower range. I'll likely add some Ernie Ball Cobalts to push it more towards that, but I'm trying to take all possibilities into consideration. Weight is only a small factor, but I can't help but notice the humbucker model appears to be a bit lighter.
If anyone with firsthand experience with either or both of these models could chime it, it'd be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your time!
