The Orion set is one that is very comfortable in extended range settings. Shining in fast-paced picking and tight, beefy chugging. It articulates chords evenly with an aggravated edge on top. This is a true friend to those that not only enjoy getting technical but also those who want to stand out in the mix. The close-fitting low range and noticeably present mid-range combine with a full and well-defined top end to yield undisputably fantastic results in aggressive applications from speedy tremolo riffs to groove-laden djenting.
The neck comes with a choice. Sweet release from the aggression? Or continue the trend?
If the latter is the goal you’re interested in, let’s talk about the ceramic option. The ceramic magnet provides cutting tones for the neck that possess an affinity to thrill-seekers. This ear-to-ear grin-inducing match to the bridge has well-regimented and controlled lead capabilities.
If you're looking for contrast, the sweet release from aggression is found in the alnico 5 option which adds balance to the set as a whole. This neck version has honeyed tones that compliment the bridge position quaintly. It's wonderfully suited for lightly distorted lead passages and cleans that seem to just pop off your fingerboard in a glassy manner.
