Yeah, yeah, yeah - another 'pickup' thread. But this is one to address a situation that maybe others have dealt with - when you have a guitar that's just naturally 'dark' sounding. Mine is a Hamer Artist - flame maple top with a wraptail. Currently has the stock Seth Lovers - and I'm usually a big fan of those pickups (have had them in multiple guitars). But this particular set in this specific guitar are just dark sounding - not a lot of treble presence, and no amount of height tweaking seems to take that away. I've observed over the years that occasionally some guitars are just like that - this one's resonant as hell, but very low-mid focused. So is this something you can overcome with different pickups? I'm thinking there may be some models that others might consider too bright in other guitars might be perfect for this one. Tempted to jump on something in the Wolfetone sale (that's a good deal, Maynard) - wide open to other suggestions as well. I'm also thinking this is a guitar that might benefit from some 'hot' PAF pickups rather than lower-wind models. One other experiment I might try is a magnet swap - I have a spare set of Wolfe's A5 magnets from another long ago project. That's probably blasphemy to some people ("wait, what!? - then they're not Seth Lovers anymore!"). But at this point - well, why not?
