THAT!

I am sorry for practicing necromancy with this old thread, but I came here after a long session of googling "Gravity Storm Mahogany".

I also find my j-custom (mahogany body with maple top) muddy with the Gravity Storms, but the sound was great when I had them on a RG550LTD (basswood)

The reason I installed the Gravity Storm at the j-custom was that I preferred the tone of the RG550LTD with Gravity Storms over the 4x times expensive j-custom with Tone-Zone/AirNorton. And now it is even worst!

Have you finally installed the EVO-2 at the mahogany j-custom? What is your impression?

Yes, put an EVO 2 in that particular guitar a while back and it's been great. Huge fan of that pickup in the J.Custom. Still haven't found a neck pickup I totally love in it. I have an Evolution Neck in there currently and am thinking about switching to a PAF Pro.

I dont have a maple top on it, but my RGR580DW has a mahogany body and I have 3 evos in it (Evo 1 bridge). They sound AMAZING, even the Evo neck.

I can second that! Evo2 in a J.Custom works very well and I too like it very much - nice and crunchy.
Please let me know when you finally switched to a PAF Pro and the how it changed the sound.

Re: To anyone who has used Gravity storms

Thank you for the comments.
I will put the Tone Zone (bridge) and Air Norton (neck) back into the j-custom, Gravity Storms back into the RG550, and maybe I will try the EVO2 at the j-custom later.
