Hi all,

I have just bought a wonderful S5570Q-RBS. The guitar is amazing and I like the tones !
I am considering however to replace at least the bridge pickup because I need to play DT/Petrucci stuff with this guitar. While the Hot Grinder sound is very good for leads, I would like to get a more tight, aggressive and clear sound out of my bridge pickup. Sometimes I have the impression that under heavy distortion it gets a bit muddy Eh
On top, I also read that due to the guitar body and cabling, limitation for pickup size and cabling arise (e.g. D-sonic cannot be mounted with the bar towards the neck as the middle pickup is not reverse polarity).
Any suggestion? I was thinking about a Crunch Lab or a D-activator, or for a Duncan Custom/Distortion. Any experience with pickup replacement on that axe?

Many thanks !! Happy

MESA Mark IV\V. Pickups don't have enough impact on a final sound. Almost all the sound is in the fingers and amplification...
Just a russian with Blackfox. Blackfox you can hear here

Sorry for my English :-)
