Before I begin, guitar specs for those unfamiliar with this axe:
Flame Maple top
Maple set-thru neck
Original Floyd Rose tremolo
Distortion bridge pickup
'59 neck pickup
1 volume knob
mini-switch used to toggle split modes
The guitar itself rocks in nearly every way I can imagine. I just think it is too bright sounding for what I like. I would love to fatten up the bridge pickup sound and pull back some of that top end that this guitar naturally produces and get something sweeter sounding for the neck position. Harmonics are also a necessity.
My favorite guitar tone in my collection comes from an LTD FX-260SM with a JB installed in the bridge. I would like to get somewhere in the ballpark of that tone with this Gus G guitar.
I will entertain all ideas pertaining to passive pickups, both neck and bridge. What do you all think?
