I`ve been dead set on getting the Herc set but after hearing a few killer clips of the Goodwood and reading reviews of the Darkburst and the Shredder I`m stuck here on deciding which one for me. Pups are going into a mahagony body w/maple cap and ebony board/mahagony neck ( McNaght Single Cut ) This guitar then plugs into a Mesa Single Rectifier. My style consist of TOOL style riffs, Satriani/Vai leads (in my dreams), licks like SRV & Eric Johnson and clean jazz styles like George Benson. Anyone, please chime in and give me your opinions. BTW, I`m dead set on WCR. Oh yeah, current pups are SD JB b and Rio Grande Texas n.
