Hey everyone, new-b here. I've got an Epi Slash tobacco burst from '07 and came with the Alnico II Pro's. I've been thinking of getting the new sig set with 500K CTS pots, caps, etc. and was told by my local tech in town that they were "weak by todays standards" and recommended going with a set of Pearly Gates instead. I'm pretty happy with the tone of the standard A2P's but figured the new set would be a bit better. Tone wise and musically I'm pretty much classic-blues rock based. So any comments from those that have heard/own these pickups and can comment on the "weak" statement would be appreciated. Thanks in advace!
