I put a set in my Ibanez semi hollow, ags83bbg. Might not be an "s" in there. Its bubinga for what its worth. How I use pups generally is neck for cleans, middle if I need a little more treble, almost never use bridge pups for clean. On the dirty channel I play what I call mid gain, classic rock kinda gain and try to use settings that allow me to use the neck pup without it being mud. In a perfect world this setting does not fall on its face when I switch to the bridge.
At first listen I was a bit skeptical of the bridge Seth(with dirt). This of course was at home at lower volume. At my occasional pretty loud jams though, this pup is smooth and cuts nice while still having balls. Its somewhat woody too. Kinda reminds me of Dicky Betts tone. The neck clean was and for the most part is still a very nice clean. Dirty is another story. Kinda flubby without much definition. I tried lowering the bass side a little, still a little meh. I use ghs nickel rockers on most guitars because they usually tame some of the highs that annoy me. Thinking about trying a set of boomers on this one tho.
So anyway, what are some opinions as far as adjustment go? Or is this the nature of the beast? Is this why for instance, the stew mac folks prefer an a5 in the neck of their parsons street humbuckers? Would it make that much of a difference?
