S470 too trebly so need advice!
So this has been my main axe for quite a while now, but the overriding problem I have with it is that the bridge p/up is far, far too trebly. The neck is great, lovely and warm with decent output, but the bridge just sucks ass. The pickups are of the Powersound variety, and obviously not brilliant, but in all the other S-series guitars I've played with these pickups, the bridge isn't as bad. Anyway, I'm gonna upgrade, but having had problems in the past when changing pickups, I'm a bit wary this time. Thus far I've narrowed it down to these choices:
1) Air Norton/Tone Zone combo- possibly too much mid wih mahagony body?
2) Pair of Evos- nice output, harmonics etc. but a bit unsubtle when clean
3) Pair of Breeds- never really heard much of these, but from the specs on the DM site, they seem like damn good pickups.
Any suggestions you have would be great, and most welcome.
