    Personally, I'd wire a capacitor in parallel. That is a guaranteed way to shift the resonant peak of a guitar's electronics into a lower frequency. If you don't want to mess around with electronics try some pure nickel strings, I have and got rid quickly as I missed the bright tones from the standard steel core round wounds.
