Just got this a week ago... It plays really great and I think it's got a lot of potential but it sounds like its covered in a blanket. Both neck and bridge suffer from the same, but more the neck. I have played with the heights of the pickups to try to get it better but it's not clearing up. The pots are 500k for reference. I'd like to clear it up a bit. I'd like the neck to be good, clean and articulate and the bridge to be a little gritty and rocking. Right now I'm leaning toward a Duncan pearly gates in the bridge and a Duncan jazz in the neck. Think this will get in the ballpark? I'm open to other similarly priced options.
