Thanks for checking out my wish list, I really appreciate it guys.
First up is to upgrade a couple of humbuckers in an old Aria Pro II, it's Les Paul styled with a chambered body and has a coil tap switch on it. I am a bit of a vain fool, so I only want pickups that come with metal/gold tops like a LP covering. So what I want out of the clean is:
1. Ability to go bell like, classy cleans, fenderish as a single coil, take advantage of the acoustic sounding chambers. I want good high frequency response, but some beef too. Something nice clean, and a tad acoustic sounding. I have a sh2 Jazz pickup, it's pretty sweet, but a bit too midrangy for me. Any suggestions? not to mention other brands, but I have a Humbucker from Hell from Dimarzio and I love it, but might want to try something new.
2. For the bridge I like to have a PAF + more sound. I do play very hard rock, and instrumental rock, so I really want something high gain, but has balls and isn't too crunchy but more growly? Like a PAF on steroids. A lot of midrange and harmonic content. I do pinch squeals, and I just like hearing harmonics. I have a Duncan Distortion, it rocks. I also have an Evolution and it's ok. I prefer the Duncan distortion sound, and I have an EMG 81 which is just ok for me. I want something with more feel than an EMG81, less bite than a Duncan Distortion.
Really I just want another great bridge pickup to play with. I'm a tad worried that Pearly Gates or a Screamin Demon won't have enough output. But I like what I here., Any suggestions?
I like classic rock, and I like a classic warm sound, but with an extra bite and growl, turn it up and shred occasionally so I do need a farily hot pickup. So let me know what you guys like and why!!!! thanks!
Thanks again guys!!!
