Okay, so...I posted about this Edwards LP that I picked up, which I must say...highly recommended. Happy to provide details to anyone interested, but I digress.
I played out several times since that post, and I totally dig it...98%. The JB in the bridge is much nicer to my sound than I thought it would be, but since I am about to do some work on it anyway...I have some magnets (A3, A4, and UOA5). I have read a lot of the posts so I have an idea of what folks think, but I have a specific question. My sound with this guitar is that Robben Ford-type Fender Blackface + Barber Small Fry + whatever I need, which usually isn't much. The JB actually ends up sounding pretty nice for this IF I keep the volume rolled back and drop the tone a little. Opened of course, we get that high gain, ice-picky thing that everyone told me about, which I just don't use. Would I be able to counter this most effectively by:
a) Using one of these magnets (A3, A4, and UOA5) instead of the stock A5
b) Changing the tone pot to a 250
c) combo of the above
of course we also have:
d) leave it alone and use the vol/tone (I certainly can do this)
e) you need a different PUP (not sure I do)
I really though that JB was coming out, but after playing it...sounds pretty great in the "sweet spot." I guess I'm asking if I can widen that sweet spot. I may put an UOA5 in that 59n too, but that's really pretty perfect already...I love 59's.
I know there are a ton of questions about this PUP and mags, but I beg your indulgence as my question is pretty specific and I found lots of "can I get a classic rock tone" questions, but...that's not my bag.
As always...Thanks all!
One thing to add...I am gonna split these PUP's when the work goes down...in case that matters.
