Hi, after doing a bit of research I figured I would just ask you guys for some pointers.
Guitar: 2001 Ibanez Jem 7VWH- alder / evos
Amp: BOGNER XTC 101b
Cab: 4x12 Marshall - v30's
FX: TC G-major for gate, delay, slight reverb.
Style/objective: To put it plainly, The current setup with my JEM has no meat. It is too thin and bright. I am getting a mahogany body made to replace it and I am looking for some good pickups. I really like the chunk and harmonics I get from a PRS singlecut but I can't afford a legitimate PRS. I played a PRS SE245 (cheap version) and I like the harmonics and tone I can get out of that, and I am wondering if I put the actual PRS SC245's in my mahogany body JEM, or even a Gibson humbuckers. I don't really need a high output pickup, but I do like my EVH style harmonics. I want a good chunky tone, with some good harmonics, and growl while keeping my RED channel gain at 1 o'clock, while being able to hit my boost and get smooth semi-bluesy neck tones for a lead, while being able to utilize pinch harmonics without too much harsh sounding highs in the upper registry w/ my treble pickup. My current setup lacks a full sounding natural harmonic response, no matter the pickup height. I use 10guage strings.
If this post is too annoying to take seriously, you don't have to respond.
