So, I think the SD Sentient is *almost* the perfect neck PU for me...

    This is interesting, as my current bridge pickup is a ceramic magnet (Dmz Dreamcatcher)

    Does this significantly change the overall tone/feel/character of the pickup, other than addressing the main issue I was referring to?

        I love it. With that caveat that I had taken a hiatus from playing guitar for about 15 years, and the only recent pickups I've compared it to are: Dmz Evolution, Dmz Norton, Dmz Illuminator 7, Carvin C26 (7 string), this is what I think about it:

        Really like the fact that the output isn't super-high. Very clear yet rich sounding, with a nice, crisp attack. Highs are very smooth, not piercing at all, yet the crunch for chords and bite on single notes is still there. Harmonics/overtones seem to beautifully jump off of it, depending on how you attack with the pick- very responsive. Very capable of producing "bell-like" overtones above the 12th fret

        I'm mostly playing leads, but I was very impressed with it's crispness for rhythm, as well. I thought it did a pretty convincing Metallica MOP/AJFO rhythm "chug" when I scooped the mids & used the "deep V" EQ on my Mark III.

          No, it still does sound very much like a Sentient. It just tightens up the mids, and makes the pickup a tad more present.
          For my taste, it was exactly what it needed to make a good pickup great! Try it, I think this is exactly what you need (plus it is easily reversible if you don't like it - but I think this is what you're lookin for)
