Alfi - hope it works as well for you as it does for me. Don't forget to do some height tweaking for best results. Let us know how you get on.

Looks like it will hit the post office later today, just in time for christmas (here in Norway we open the presents on christmas eve)! Very excited, now I can finally pull that hideous reverse zebra Juggernaut out. Zebra pickups do not look nice in a LP Custom Silverburst... I will let you know what I think!  :smiley:

The Abraxas is up and running, and it sounds great! My first thought was that there is certainly no lack of highs, but it is more smooth than the Riff Raff, and it does sound more balanced. With shiteeeloads of gain it can lose a little tightness, but it can still chugg like a champ with the right amp. And to Slartibartfarst: it lacks neither bite nor articulation, as you can hear in my clip. The amp is a Marshall DSL + TS profile on my Kemper.

EDIT: apparently something went wrong with the recording, it cut in the middle of the pinch harmonic... Well, it is just for you to hear what it sounds like so I won't do anything about it  :smiley:
