Been ages haven´t played in standard tuning and with passive pickups. Thanks to the great people at ESP Guitars and Seymour Duncan providing this excellent LTD deluxe EC-1000 with JB Seymour Duncan pickups. On top I´m using Elixir Strings with Orange Amplifiers cab and also using my AMT Electronics P2 preamp distrortion and my Godlyke Distributing Inc. Maxon overdrive OD 808 as an extra boost, through my Seymour duncan powerstage 170 power amp. And that basically my solo sound. For rhythm I cut off the maxon pedal.
