I've been back at home the last two consecutive weekends and the only axe I have down here is my Schecter with the Alt8/Jazz set (that Jazz reeeeally needs to come out), but I've been really digging it for the most part.
Unfortunately, I'm not vibing with the top end of the pickup anymore. It's overly harsh and scratchy with my setup for whatever reason (not even the 81 has the same top end harshness), and I'm thinking this could be the more 'ceramic' leaning tendencies of the A8 magnet coming into play.
Has anyone tried the 'Alt5'? In my head it works out, but I'd hate for the pickup to lose all it's tightness and punchyness once I take the A8 out.
