Honestly, my guitar already sounds pretty good. It's just that's a bit muddy and doesn't get the exact sound I like through certain tube amps. I'm thinking an SD 59 and Custom Custom would be cool. Anybody know how the Custom Custom sounds for rock type crunch and distortion and how well it pairs with a 59? I already like 59s in the neck.

what is the guitar? i'd just be concerned that the cc might be a little muddy too, depending on the guitar.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I want a clear crunch sound that's tight for rhythm, but smooth enough for singing lead. Think hard rock sounds with some alternative and softer indie stuff as far as tonal range. Needless to say, the ability to sound decent on the clean channel of an amp is also important.

'59 is muddy to me.
CC would work excellent.

Although to be honest, the reason you sound muddy is because you're playing through a Vox Valvetronix.

It sounded muddy through a number of tube amps I like as well. Which is why I'm thinking of pickup changes.

ok... maybe a custom V or even a custom? might be worth considering, should be a little brighter than the custom custom...

dimarzio is the answer for everything

I'd love to see that on an exam.

DIMARZIO!!!!!


Anyways, after reading some reviews on your guitar, I would say just replace the guitar. It wouldn't be worth putting some expensive pickups in a $200 guitar.


That's my 'two cents' as you say in the USA.

There's sound clips of clean and dirty for all pickups on the SD site.
GHOST BLOWJOB!
