I've used the Dragon II Treble pickup for a while now in the bridge of my Custom 24. I love the increased output and boosted midrange it provides over a vintage PAF-style pickup -- in my view, the Dragon II Treble is perfect for making a thinner-bodied guitar like the Cu24 sound like a thunderous heavyweight Les Paul or McCarty. It's a fantastic pickup for playing classic hard rock a la Boston or Slash.
However, as many have pointed out, the pickup can sound a bit "compressed," like it doesn't have a lot of dynamic range, and I'm wondering if there are any third-party pickups out there that can provide a similar output and tonal character without sounding quite so compressed. Does anybody have any suggestions?
