So I scored a 52 AVRI Coppercaster a while ago, and after playing it for a while, I think the bridge pickup is a bit ice picky for my taste. I honestly never thought I would say that about any guitar---usually I wish my bridge pickups had more treble on tap. But this has a thinness or stingyness to it that's not pleasant to my ear. Here's what I think I need: a replacement bridge pickup that tames the ice pick while still giving me that twangy "BRRRANG" sound hitting an open chord through an EL84 amp (I use a Mesa TA-30 with a Gold if that helps). I live on the bridge pickup, so this is pretty important to me to get right. The BRRRANG is non-negotiable for me, but I want more girth behind it. On the high strings especially. Another point of reference at the opposite end of the spectrum: the stock bridge pickup on the 2 MIM Standards I used to have, as well as the stock bridge pickup on my old Classic 50s, were way too bassy for me---not nearly twangy enough. So I'm hesitant to say I want something actively bassier... I think I just need something as lively as the AVRI bridge pickup, but less shrill. I started looking through Cavalier's offerings (shout out to @roknfnrol for the incredible demos) and am very intrigued by the Hydra Lion. Being able to select among, say, the Huge Lion, Nashville Lion, and Bakersfield Lion, would be amazing, and would seem to give me the control I want over 'level of twang.' Would that pickup fit the bill in y'all's experience? I play music that sounds like early Wilco, R.E.M., Petty (R.I.P.), Big Star. Thanks for reading my ramblings. Looking forward to y'all's insights.
