It's a hollow body with the stock ACH-1 and ACH-2 pickups in it. I find them muddy with no definition. I had another Artcore guitar a while ago and I replaced the stock pickups (ACH-1 and ACH-2) with a set of GFS Liverpool Retrotrons, and the guitar really came alive and I loved the sound. BUT, in the process, it lost its "hollow body tone", if that makes any sense. That woody midrange that only occurs on those types of guitars was evident with the stock ACH-1 and ACH-2 pickups, but sort of disappeared with the GFS Liverpool Retrotrons. I'm looking for input from anyone who has used different GFS PAF-sized replacement pickups with hollow body guitars, who can tell me if there are any GFS offerings that will bring clarity to the notes without losing that special hollow body tone. And yes, I'd like to stay with GFS as they are affordable and I've had great results from them. THANKS!
