Confirm my doubts...
Finally spent some time with the new RG1550M last night and while I like the general tone of the pickups, they sounded kind of muddy to me (I DO have them backed down about 6mm). I'm pretty fickle so I want to make sure it's not just me.
I've read posts where many have said they hated the V8, V7 pickups. I compared it to the Super Distortion in my SAS and the Super was much brighter and articulate.
Now the SAS should be warmer because it is mahagony, so I don't want icepicks if I put them in the basswood RG (trying to save myself some work). What do you think?
