Hi, I have a EVH 5150 III 50 watts, but, this amp have a tone very tight and a bit strident. Maybe because I use a PRS 57/08 Pickups, and this pickups give a tone PAF 50's decade, is clear and cristaline, but is a vintage pickups and low gain, humbuckers of course. I need a pickup that give me a tone less tight and strident and with the power enought to do thing like Hardrock or Alternative Metal, I no need a tone super compressed or tight, because I not do heavy metal, death metal, metal core things.
My guitar is a PRS Custom 24 made in USA. What recommemd me to this?
Other thing, the speakers of my cabinet are a Celestion Mesa V30, maybe, the problem is this. Because, for example in cleans sound like a sparkly clean with all the knobs at 12 o'clock, I like a fat tone fat fat fat but with definition. No a thin tone as this sound.
hmm, im not sure if the pickups are the problem. my friend played a custom 24 with stock prs pickups (he uses PRS metal pickups now) with a 6505+ through a mesa 4x12 v30s and his tone was massive and thick…far from thin. the reason he switched to the PRS metal pickups was that his tone was actually too fat and round, and needed something tighter.
