    Installed the Alnico 2 Pro set; along with 250k pots and 0.047uF cap. The guitar is a little warmer and the tone is more "pronounced". I experience that "pronounced" every time I install a Seymour Duncan pickup. The guitar is still a little on the bright side; but more of a "crispness" and not "tinniness". I'll keep these in for a while at least and see how they do.

      I believe the brightness problem has been resolved. One thing about pickups, with alnico 2 magnets, is that you can raise them pretty close to the strings because of the weaker magnetic pull and it doesn’t cause any negative ramifications. So, I raised both pickups pretty close to the strings; but not too close. And now, I have more punch and more warmth without sacrificing tone.

        I am happy that you found the set that works for you. It is a set we don't hear enough about on here.

          I am using a different pick too. Been using these:


          They can be a little bright and crisp, so I switched to the John Petrucci Dunlop pick.


          It's like a slightly larger Jazz III. Makes for a warmer attack and tone. I also use the white Dunlop Medium thumbpick.

          Believe it or not, your pick makes a difference.
