PAF Pro in 540R neck.

Why do I not like this pickup in the neck of a 540R?

It just seems too honky and does not clean up real well. Not warm at all.

I have an Air Norton I might try instead.


To be honest, not real fond of the Breed in the bridge either so I have a Tone Zone coming to try.

Re: PAF Pro in 540R neck.

I had the PP/TZ combo in my old 540R and thought it was great in that particular guitar. No idea why you don't like the Paf Pro. I also have that same combo in my RG 3120 and it sounds nothing like it did in the Radius.

To each his own. The reality is that you never know until you try.
