Interesting choice on the pickups.

Other's:

I’m looking forward to the contrast. Do you know if the Thorium is comparable to a Dimebucker or a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck? I can’t find any information for its DC resistance and etc. I was hoping for the guitar to emerge by the time I have a community concert mid July but I guess I’ll have to use my old faithful (an 87 custom Kramer Pacer). I have a feeling a few other people used their stimulus for a new axe too :P

I do not. I dont know much about either the Thorium or Holdsworth. I have heard good stuff about the Holdsworth neck but players are all different.
