    Pickup swap suggestions for PRS Tremonti?

    I recently got a new PRS tremonti, really like the guitar except the bridge is a bit too angry/hot and seems a boot scooped.
    Neck seems fine.
    Thinking about a WCR Godwood, looking for hot PAF.
    Anybody swap out pickups in a Tremonti?
    What did you like?

    Before you spend any money, try lowering the pickup a tad and backing off the volume pot a little. Both of these things will tame the pickup a bit

    I think what Shawn meant to say is you definitely need to buy a set of \m/ pickups! LOL

    I'm sure theyre sweet but $400 is pricey and IIRC they only come double black which I'm not crazy about with the McCarty Burst on the tremonti..

    Its amazing what The Tremonti pups do when rolling down the volume and backing off the tone, and then Dime it and they growl!

    +1 on lowering the pickup a bit.
    also you might consider putting a cover on it , that worked wonders on my Lester

    I popped a covered WCR Godwood in and its sounds great.
    I think I am going to put a WCR covered crossraods in to match.
