Been looking into buying a Charvel DS-1 ST and it comes with two Seymour Duncan AHB-1 pickups as standard.

I've heard that these pickups provide quite muddy sound on a distorted channel. Has anybody had any experience playing with them?

I am the only guitarist in the band and I really need to have definition on the lower notes on a distorted channel. I play through a Peavey Valveking with an Ibanez TS-8. Aiming for a slightly overdriven clean sound & fairly tight distortion. Think Stonesour, Staind.. that kinda jingle.

Secondly, has anybody got any feedback on a Charvel?

P.S. I am open to suggestions of anything around the same price. Looking for a Les Paul style, but not a Gibson/Epiphone.
