    'some settings may already scoop out a lot of mids and so the difference is not so noticeable'...

    That will be the built-in Pooper Scooper then...

    Larry,
    You're correct! Pups & hogs are animals, and have no place on a guitar forum.

    Regards,

    “I like big bottom
    … and I cannot lie.”


    (Well, maybe not Kim K. big.)

    I do like the extended bottom range (and mids) of the MFDs - but I did alter p’up heights (slant)… as well as some individual poles to suit my big ears und I do play a bit on the cleaner side.

    Und vhat strangs are ya uh usin’?
    I went with the Fender Original 150’s (Nickel) .010 - .046

    And some of the MFD poles seemed “stuck” upon arrival here so I very carefully exerted back and forth pressure to move them. Mind you, it’s an older ASAT and the poles hadn’t likely been moved for quite some time. Can provide pics and measurements if you’d like, later.

    That is... if this all isn’t jokingly based in scatolgy.:rolleyes:
    Cheers!

    I just went back in there with my screwdriver and let me tell you, these pickups are sooper sensitive to the height adjustment. I brought the bridge up a teensy bit on the bass side and the neck went down a little. Seems much nicer now. The other thing I did which helps bring out the differences is to play licks on individual strings rather than strumming full chords. This accentuates the midrange differences, e.g. on the A D and G strings.

    Far as strings go, I haven't changed the ones that came with it but they seem like 10's of some sort. On the Peavey I'm using 9's. I may try 9.5's! I thought I'd settled on 10's with the exception of 11's on the Jazzmaster. Hehe, this is why it's important to have more guitars you know. You remember 6 months ago I told you I was trying to get settled in with fewer guitars? I lied.

    And I tweaked the modeler settings. Amp models, EQ, cabs. I guess I'm starting to realize that even with a conscious decision to minimize options, there are still too many. That Princeton Reverb is starting to look better all the time.
