Been a really challenging year,. First covid, then my dad died, followed by my father in law. My mother in law can't live on her own, so she lives with us now. I had my own bout with covid in March, but I'm fine. In spite of everything I just mentioned, life is really, really good.
The only thing that I changed on my 2011 R9 is the bridge pickup. Dare I say it : just a Seymour Duncan JB, because I am a hard rock player not a blues guy or vintage freak... That said, I have a 2006 LP Standard USA production and in that guitar there is also a Burstbucker 2 which sounds very good in that guitar.
