a short rundown to start.
i have two electrics, one is maple mahogany neck thru, ebony board with 81x pickup. the other, a bolt on all maple body and neck with rosewood board and lundgren m6.
last week i decided to try the lundgren in the neck thru. it sounds killer, but, its much less forgiving than the emg in this particular guitar, because in the maple guitar is does have some forgiveness.
it seems the low end with the m6 and this particular guitar is just so tight and focused, and "there" that any tiny slip up comes right thru the amp. I'm thinking this isn't quite the pickup for this guitar and will probably put it back into the other axe.
so my question is, without going back to active, what should i look for?
im not a huge fan of really HOT wound passives. I've been emg for ages, and the only other passive I've had in that time that i liked was the SD Screamin Demon.
thanks in advance -)
