Help us out though, WHAT are you trying to sound like or what sound that is different?
Great question, I guess what I want is more "openness" I want more definition to the sound ala "Riviera Paradise". I feel the pickups I've tried lack certain clarity and openness.. this is why I decided to look at vintage wound as opposed to overwound pickups. One thing for sure I want to avoid thought it's the "Ice pick highs", I can't stand that sound. I just want well rounded pickup sound... I know they are out there just haven't found them yet.
