Okay, I'm after your opinions. I am building a Universe copy with a maple neck and fingerboard, and ash body. I'm going to put a H/S/H pickup set in it as per a normal UV, but what humbuckers do you reckon I sould go for? I love the switching on my current UV, where the bridge humbucker is selected with the single coil, and will certainly copy this. The sound I go for is quite a high gain, not toppy like ACDC, but not all tuned down heavy and dark like any EMG equipped guitar. I like a harmonically rich sound, with plenty of usable feedback - a balanced tone, not scooped mids or bass or treble heavy, but a broad, bright tone; you get where I'm coming from
. So my questions are: my current UV has blaze humbuckers, but what is different about an evo, or air norton, etc? Any help would be appreciated, and I know this has been talked about quite a bit before - sound is just about the most personal, elusive, impossible to explain part of guitar playing, IMHO.
Thanks in advance for all your opinions,
cheers for now,
