Hey guys, just wondering if anyone could throw me some ideas for a new pickup. The guitar I am putting it in is the Peavey Vandenberg I've mentioned on here a couple times. Poplar body, bolt-on maple neck with ebony fingerboard, H-S configuration.
While I was super happy with it in the beginning, after having some problems with a grounding issue with the factory bridge humbucker, and then fixing it, only to have it come back, then replacing all the potentiometers and wiring and now to have it start squealing like a dying pig, I'm just sick of f-ing with it and want to replace it. I realize potting it would probably help a lot, but I seem to be doing more tinkering than playing lately. I'm tired of looking at it, it's annoying the shit outta me, I want it out of my life.
I guess I'm looking for something versatile. Nothing too hot, or anything like super chunky/crunchy/crispy/death metal-ly (for lack of better terms) as I play a lot of melodic and 80's stuff mainly in standard tuning with 9 gauge strings on this specific guitar.
I appreciate the input!
