It's the budget version of the signature.
I played it and thought it sounded good for the money.
So I decided to try and push it with something from when he started using his signature guitar since Smith is a rhythm player.
I am not mad keen on the single coil sound. Not that it isn't okay (but it has the single coil hum), but it seems to me the Fender Murray hot rails one will get you the solos you want. I mean IM is a four-guitarist band!
Even these cheap Jackson humbuckers made it quite well, but I am considering sticking the one from the signature model, a Seymour Duncan TB-4 bridge pickup, or a DiMarzio Super Distortion.
Does anyone else own or try one of these? If you are into Iron Maiden rhythm, give it a go.
