    Tremonti pickups in Custom 24

    Hi all -
    Have any of you folks tried a set of Tremonti pickups in a CU24 (or22)? I have a 1997 CU24 with the HFS/Vintage Bass pickups and they just seem "tired" is the only way I can describe it. I've had several CU's previously and even my CE24 sounds more "lively" with the HFS/VB combo.
    I'm thinking of trying a set and switching my 5-way rotary to the 3-way push/pull system. But, I wasn't sure if the Tremonti's were specifically designed with a Singlecut body/wood mass in mind???

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts, opinions, and/or suggestions!
    Todd

    i don't think the tremonti pups have coil tap, so you won't get the single coil or in-between sounds.

    OK, maybe that's the reason I have never seen a set in anything other than a SC body style.
    Thank you!

    I've got Tremontis in almost all of my PRSi....

    They sound fantastic in everything IMO.

    The Tremonti bridge is tap-able. I put one in my CU24 and it is super hot, have to dial back the tone on it. On my Tremonti guitar, the bridge pickup seems to blend and balance better. It's all personal preference though, they are awesome pickups.

    I just picked up an SE Tremonti on Saturday and plan on putting the US set as soon as I can.

    Anyone have any laying around?
