PRS Custom 22 with FRED/PAF JOE or PAF-PRO/ PAF JOE
I have a beautiful PRS Custom22. I put away the Dragon 2 (a bit loose and weak, neck is muddy to my ear).
I tried Norton bridge + Fred neck. I was thinking it was the perfect combo.
Don't like the Norton in fact. Too much mids and gain. It got distorsion on clean channel. I would like an open , airier, clearer, more versatile bridge PU.
For bridge PU, I would like a versatile, yet powerfull PU. With harmonics and overtones, biting and very clear too. No distorsion when used clean. A good split tone for both.
But FRED was very nice in neck. I love biting tone , even in neck position, and clarity above all. I like trebly neck PU too. It was way better than anything I tried in neck. It could be a bit more clearer and a bit more treble, it would be perfect.
I play lots of shred / hard rock stuff (think GNR, Extreme, Bon jovi, Satch, Vai...)
I now think about this combo:
- either PAF JOE or FRED in neck
- Either FRED or PAF-PRO in bridge.
If you can give me some advices, it would be nice.
