    Got her installed in my McCarty std today. It sounds thick with good note separation. The highs seems a little less bitey than a HFS. It also has a tighter feel. I usually need to set my bridge pickup a little lower with hotter pickups and the screws actually were too short for me to get to the 4 or 5/32 area that I usually prefer. By comparison, I have my 5708s and 5909s around 3/32". I have to put some longer screws in tomorrow and I will try to do a clip. I have a 5909 in the neck so I can't do matched \m/ set middle position.

    Gotta finish grabbing some tone samples today. Shipping the Metal to Queen City tomorrow for review by a real metal player.

    Snapped a few pics yesterday after putting gold pole-pieces in them. Polished covers look great on this guitar.

    Stunner!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    I thought the "\m/" stood for "metal". Thanks to Skitchy's video I now know it's rock fingers. Man, I feel like such a bonehead.
    Too many and never enough...

    YES! I freaking love it. I can't wait to give these puppies a run for their money. That guitar looks way better in your factory than at my place haha

    Here's a quick sample I did. These are parts I wrote inspired the 1st time playing thru the \m/ pickup. It's still rather new so forgive the slop and slight out of time/tune. I keep altering the parts, or I would've had it done sooner.

    I love the clean tones! Out of curiosity, is the bridge on the guitar locked down or floating? Sounds incredible!
