Looking for fat neck humbucker for 24 fret super strat
Last time I asked about what bridge pickup to go for and finally found a perfect one. Thanks again for recommendations, ideas and comments!
I'm definitely set on Perpetual Burn(bridge) and SSL1 rwrp (middle) but I haven't yet found a perfect neck pickup. The guitar is very bright and punchy basswood bodied PGM301 with stop tail bridge, bolt-on maple neck with maple fretboard and 24 frets. The guitar is so bright acoustically that it made most neck pickups sound like a strat, even though wired as a standard humbucker. The pickup placement appears to be the reason but I'm pretty positive that there is a perfect pickup for this application.
List of neck pickups I've tried:
Too mushy and undefined when playing fast solos. Nice cleans and split tones
-Humbucker From Hell
Very focused sound, too bright for my taste
Bright and spanky but too bright, nice split tones
Sounded very bland and low power with this guitar. Didn't like the split tones
Too smooth and compressed for me. Cleans have natural compression which I don't like
This is what's in currently. Still a bit stratty and twangy but I can just about live with it. Has nice sustain when soloing and notes get nice harmonic feedback. Full clean sound and super nice slit tone.
So, I'm looking for a darker pickup than AN, which is just a bit too bright. The ones I'm looking for are P-Rails, A2P, Breed neck and Air Zone.
