Earlier on, I found that the bridge pickup on my tele was sounding a little shrill. I thought that I might have to change the bridge pup out. But first I decided I would try a few things. Firstly, I adjusted my EQ. I had my treble at 8, mids at 6, and bass at 5...after I changed them, treble at 6, mids at 5, and bass at 5, made a huge difference. It then sounded slightly muddy, so I propped up my amp so that it was aiming up slightly...another huge difference, sounded almost perfect, not too much brightness or muddiness. I then tweaked my tone knob slightly and that was it, it sounded pretty darn good. Keep in mind this is a crappy amp I'm using (Fender Frontman 15-G), but it sounded surprisingly good after all those adjustments. So my suggestion to all those people who keep switching pickups on their guitars, try tweaking a few things on your amp before switching pickups or magnets and it could make a world of difference to you.
