So, I have a Damien Special and it has EMG Hz H4/H4A humbuckers in it. I had .11's on it and the tone was fine, but I wanted thicker strings so I switched to .12's and now my tone is disgustingly muddy.

I love the feel of the new gauge much better than anything I've done before so I want to keep them. So what can I do to fix my mud, UG?
what tuning, sometimes to get that 'crunch' you need slightly lighter strings than you think. for example a set of 11s of my guitar in C# standard sounds alot better than when i had 12s in the same tuning

if you had Seymour Duncan you wouldn't have that problem

try turning down your gain, as thicker strings vibrate with more strength than thinner, so that might cause some of your mud, also try turning down the bass a little
I'm tuned one step down and I've messed with pickup height and it all just kinda sounded the same so that's why I'm thinking I should change pickups.
