New Pickups

Right guys, I need some new pickups.

I have a 22 fret, floyded, basswooded guitar that is currently really bassy sounding and not too nice.

I would like it to sound a lot higher output with a lot of mids and treble for the bridge and less bass but still a bit bassy in the neck.

Thanks for any help

Andy!

tone zones have too much bass (For his situation, I personally think they're the greatest, but he wants less bass), try a humbucker from hell, FRED, X2N or PAF pro

At the moment I have two Jackson humbuckers.

I was thinking of getting a PAF Pro/Evo Combination or a HFH/Evo Combination.

Paf Pro or Fred's are awsome pickups. Personally...get a Fred and wait until Satriani unviels his new Paf Joe! I'm waiting and waiting for em!!
