I'm looking to replace my Duncan JB in an Alder-bodied guitar. As much as I love my JB, i find it just a bit too trebly and thin for my guitar, and I'm sure it'll sound MUCH better in a darker guitar like my Les Paul Custom. I've heard good things and bad things about the Tone Zone, so I'd like to hear from some experienced players, especially Mesa/Boogie players since I'm using a TriAxis.

Thanks, guys.

i'm going to buy one for my basswood rg, as they seem to be a good match.

from what i have seen/heard, it's a pretty love/hate pickup. people say pickup height is a crucial thing in getting them to sound good. seems good for bassy, screaming shredding ala paul gilbert.

going by paul gilbert's sound, they seem pretty "deep".

some people's muddy may also be some people's bassy, which is what i said before about it being either a love/hate kinda thing. as for the treble, i think it will be the opposite of "trebbly and thin".

Ok. From what I've gathered, Petrucci used a Tone Zone in the bridge thru a TriAxis for Images and Words so I can deal with that.
