Steve R Posted July 24, 2006 Report Share Posted July 24, 2006 G'day everyone! Thought I'd stop in here and ask for some opinions. last year I decided that I'd spend the time (and cash) to get my main guitar working and sounding just how I want it to. It's a maple & alder body, with a maple neck and ebony fretboard. So as you can imagine, it's a pretty bright machine! Anyway, I won't bore you all with details of my trials and errors, but in the end, I've got two Seymore Duncan humbuckers in it, an 'Alnico Pro II' in the neck, and a 'Custom Custom' in the bridge. This setup has been alright, although to be honest, I can't say I've been 100% satisfied with it. Lately I've really been noticing that I've having trouble getting a bood sound on both pickups. The trouble is... I really like the sound of each of these pickups individually, but together, it's hard to get a good setting that will sound great on both, either the bridge is too bright, or the neck is too dark. Anyone have any sugestions? I like the big fat sound of the APH-II, but I also like the gain of the Custom Custom. I'd thought of swapping it for a Pearly Gates in the Bridge, but then read that they're even brighter, so I suspect that's not the way to go! Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated. I play in a band where I'm the only guitarist, so I'd like a fairly even tone. Cheers, Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
