    I've got a custom Charvel San Dimas- style guitar with Alder body, maple neck with ebony board. It's got a Bill Lawrence L500XL which is a very high output pup. It's very round/muddy sounding. I need it to be more crisp/sharp etc. I read/heard somewhere that lower output pups = sharper/less round/more "attacky". I'm going for a 80s metal tone and slightly heavier. Which pups would you recommend? Thanks!
