I'm going to replace the pickups on my Ibanez AS73 Artcore, and am really not sure what to put in it.
The tone I'm going for is a nice smooth jazz tone that can deal with being cranked a bit. Kinda like Trey Anastasio (Phish)'s tone. Maybe a slightly hotter neck pickup for lead work and a cooler bridge for clean? I'd really like to end up with a reasonably buttery lead tone.
Playing through a Laney VH100R, and looking to change both pickups. Price isn't really an issue, but I'd rather spend less than more.
