Hi,

I made a custom axe: RG shape, with Edge/Floyd w. copper block, lacquer sprayed sides and back, nitro on top (for looks in iced-tea burst), one single coil and one HB, maple neck (not the greatest), poplar body. It is now 3 years old and isn't sounding any better compared to my other, albeit amazing, few electrics. So just wondering if some lengthwise drilling in the body may be in order to liven it up. Another idea, might be to mount a transducer/shaker to it and hum it out in hopes to awaken it. I was almost desperate enough to install active pickups but they don't come low output/vintage-toned just high-gain units.any thoughts/successes?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
