Replacing Stocks in ESP LTD C-305

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by brutalmetalguy, Nov 24, 2003.

  1. Hello.

    I was just wondering if anyone had a suggestion for pickup upgrades for a brand new, stock ESP LTD C-305.

    I play very heavy, very fast Death / Groove Metal. I'm looking for very deep tone, but at the same time I want crisp, clear highs. I play lots of chords in which I want the crisp "clank" like that of Cryptopsy, but I also play lots of fast riffs where I need depth and clarity. The humbuckers sound great, but I want something even better.

    I'm a long time bass player, but I'm green when it comes to mods. If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it.

  2. EMG DC 45's instead of those HZ's and you could wire the pre amp at 18 volts. If u search it should show you how to do it.
  3. Version Luminol
