As some of you may/may not know. I have been wanting to mod my Sheraton since early April!!! Well, I have had bad GAS for other things (see my effect pedals) and I haven't really had the money to actually do it. Now I'm kicking myself in the face for waiting so long.
Now that I have the money I really want to get new pickups for my Sheraton (among other modifications) and I was wondering which route you guys think I should go. I have been checking out the Seymour Duncan Phat-Cats (which are basically humbucker sized P-90's) as well as the Pearly Gates and 59's. I basically want something that is punchy yet not too bright or muddy and doesn't add to the feedback that the Sheraton already has with the stock pickups which is one thing I'm worried about with the Phat-Cats--Will they give me too much feedback and/or be too bright? What do you guys think about the other pickups?
My geeked rig is in my sig. I normally crank the master on the jmp and add in some pre so its loud with a normal amount of overdrive. The kind of tone I really want is The Black Crowes kind of crunch. If it means anything...I always keep the Sheraton in Open "G" now.
Sorry its so long...thanks for the help!
