Thread: Duncan Distortion vs Suhr Aldrich in mahogany body and neck

  1. #1

    Default Duncan Distortion vs Suhr Aldrich in mahogany body and neck

    Dear fellows,

    I've been playing a guitar with a Duncan Distortion in the bridge position for a while. It has mahogany body and neck and a Gotoh Floyd Rose.

    I like the tone of the guitar, especially the aggressiveness and chunkiness of the TB6. However, recently, I started missing some high ends.

    I was thinking in replace the TB6 with a Suhr Aldrich pickups, based in some demos, I've seen. Which Seymour Duncan pickup would be similar to an Aldrich pickup or a Distortion with a bit more hight?

    Cheers,
    Ivo

    My guess is that it would be the Dimebucker.

    The Aldrich is a cool pickup, but it's got less treble than the Distortion.
