Re: what pickup to try next?
Not really sure tone wise, just something different than what I already have. I do play mostly metal and tend to stray to the heavier chunck and always seem to scoop mids out. I just havent experimented with basswood much, they either already have emgs or were stock. Ive switched out several in my mahogany bodies but obviously won't be the same.
I love the evos in my 520qs(but mahogany so different), I don't like the stock hb-1 in my 565 it sounds too raspy(that is going to get swapped also) I guess I will just try several out in the 565 while Im waiting for the other guitar to get here, but will the maple vs rosewood fretboard make a large difference?
