Pickups for s470?
Hi guys, nice forum.
I have recently bought a used s470 (mahogany body, maple wizard 2 neck, h/s/h pickups) not sure what year but its in great condition and has the zr trem so Iím guessing 2003 or 2004. I love the way the guitar feels and like the trem a lot, but I hate the tone coming from my stock hum buckers through my fender stage 160 amp. The neck pu is total bassy mud, like some one through a wet blanket over my amp. The bridge pick up is just a little better. No matter how I set my amp or guitar tone and volume, clean or dirty channels I canít find a satisfactory tone out of the humbuckers. The single coil sounds fine though. On the same amp my Mexican strat sounds good and my friendís les paul sounds great so I guess itís the pups on this guitar. Any recommendations on new pups? I think I want to go with dimarzio, something not so hot but clear crisp and tight good all around. Also any suggestions for a distortion pedal for metal (metalica, danzig tone, not death metal) the fender amp doesnít do metal.
Thanks in advance sorry if the post was too long,
