|Thisn is one of those "make your dad proud" kind of things!! Yesterday while coming home with my boys, I played "Mr.Scary", we got home before the song was over and my 10 year old tells me to wait until it`s over to turn off the car.|
After the songs conclusion, he then proceeds to tell me that he wants to learn the song!!!!!
I was shocked , he worlds away from being able to play anything more than three basic chords, right now, but dammit, I`m going to teach him, right after I learn it!!
I am as proud as I can be of him, now if he`ll just keep the drive going!!!!!!

|OK, thru multiple e-mails with EMG and multiple attempts at re- eq`ing my seetings, an actual eq (graphic or parametric) inline or a treble booster is what it will take to boost the top end of these EMG`s. Even their other models (model 60) that claim to be bright, probably will not be enough. Perhaps it`s time to go back to Seymour Duncan`s!!!|
While the signal strength of the EMG`s is amazing, they are just so much darker than I am accustomed to!!

|I don't know what it is, but drenching chorus seems to be what really wakes up the EMG's. I have never tried a compressor, but may have to consider one on G~ Dude's recommendation...|

|OK, at SDB`s recomendation, I made adjustments to the height of my EMG`s, now I can hear the difference between the bridge and neck pickups. Plus the guitar was tuned to a 440, I dropped it a half step. Compression and chorus seem to be what the EMG`s like for that all out blitzing metal tone.|

|Agree. The best i have ever owned. I have the SH-H2. Seymour Duncans. standard. The EMG 81 is a Hot pickup.( gain Boost).|

|Yes, the guitar feels amazing. I knew I would love the neck. I briefly had a Import model back in 05 (Fusion HH) . It showed me what these CR necks are all about.|
Plus this is the first guitar I have ever had that has the Ebony fingerboard. I prefer the look of the maple fboards, the Ebony sounds great , takes a light touch to ring out the sustain. The EMG`s are stock on the DK-1 like SDB mentioned, atleast on current models. They do have a Soloist model that had Duncans as stock.
I really do love the guitar though, best I have ever owned. And your`s??

|2800 may be the MSRP, but any GOOD dealer will work from MAP. Most KV2's retail around 1,899 give or take a few bills, but doing better than 2800 should not be difficult at all..|

Thanks, I love it!! Am having abit of a time adjusting to the EMG`s, they do sound great, but seem to lack some top end, I`m experimenting with some things to try and solve that issue.
