So I have a Jaguar that I love the feel of, but the sound needs changed a bit. The the single coil sound tone is great, but the EQ settings of 5/3/9 (bass, mid, and treb respectively) are way too lopsided for me. I want to find somthing more balanced, to bring out the cleans that I love in this guitar, take a little surf out and bring more jazz in. My guitar hero is Trey Anastasio, I'm not out to immitate his sound completely, but thats a ballpark. I little higher output would also be nice, but far second to clean sound. What do you perscribe, oh powerful UG?
My attempt at gear-
Fender Jaguar (limited edition Cream with gold hardware.)
Goya Rangemaster (1967 Italian Archtop)
Martin SWDGT Acoustic.
Vox AD50VT.
Ibanez Tubescreamer, Wasabi Delay, MXR BLUE BOX.

So? Change your EQ then.
No sense buying pickups when they won't make a lick of difference with your amp.

I'm not that dumb that I can't change my amp settings, different pickups are built to different EQ settings, standard fender Jag's are 5/3/9. My amp can change its settings, but can't change the fundamental sound of the guitar like new pickups can,

Well, it's a modeling amp, and pickup changes don't do squat.
Unless you're switching from like a vintage output single to a quad rail humbucker or something.
Just save up for a new amp if you're unhappy. Or, just use your EQ. If you just boost your mids on the amp, cut the mids and do whatever with the bass, you should balance it out.

Guitars aren't built to "EQ settings", that's the daftest thing I've ever heard.

"The daftest think I've ever heard," hmmmm, intersting. Tell that to Seymour Duncan, just a hunch but I bet he knows a LITTLE MORE than you do.

That's describing the EQ curves for specific pickup models. They're a rough guide to the tonal qualities of those pickups, however you don't get GUITARS with EQ ratings like that. Does your guitar have Duncans or something?

I really don't think pickups are your problem here.

Agreed Seagull, I believe we were misunderstanding eachother, shake hands and make up? So if pickups aren't the problem, and amps are, lets talk amps. I've been meaning to upgrade for a while now, and having been pretty happy with the Vox, I was thinking a AC30 Custom combo, but with new preferences emerging, I'm thinking something more jazz than classic rock. Lots of people seem to say Fender, like the Deluxe Reverb, are the way to go. Any thoughts or suggestions?
