Deep Sixx Humbuckers

Can anyone out there please tell me the difference between the standard Epi TBird Humbucks and the Deep Sixxers? Are they custom wound for instance? I`ve tried everywhere for some kind of answer.

Re: Guitar to Bass

Hey Matthew, I have recently swapped over to bass from being a `guitarist` for 20 years! I also play with a fairly light pick (.52mm) and sometimes palm mute - it`s also possible to double pick with a lighter softer pick which reduces fatigue in the picking hand. The chunkier strings take a little w...

Re: Favourite bass part?

John`s bass line on My Generation - The Who is just amazing. Money - Pink Floyd and Jason`s My Friend of Misery - Metallica, is cool too :)
