    Nothing wrong with that. I've had my eye on the Ac15 for some time. I don't need to hang with a drummer and such so it should suit me just fine. :naughty:

    after playing it for a couple hours it still is amazing me, one thing, i wish i had of went with a little hotter bridge, the neck is fantastic as is the bridge, but a little hotter and it would be perfect

    You can try raising it up a bit if it's low. It should help.

    Get to know them a bit and break them in. If we need to go a little hotter on the bridge we can work out something. ;)

    you should hear the growl im getting out of a 10 watt vox :dude: it has so many different tones, from bluesy to acdc to nirvana it does it all with the turn of a knob and lotsa honk, can't get over how much they chime with the vox, it really is amazing the difference, ill try raising them a bit, clockwise on the screw for up? i dont wanna lower them by accident especially after i just had it setup

    :cool:

    I designed the Pro Mods to be very versatile. :naughty:

    Yep, clockwise on the screws will raise the pickup. Turn them up a 1/4 to a 1/2 turn and play it for a while to see what it does. As long as you keep track of what you do you can always put it back. You should notice the bridge will gain a bit of volume and get some more hair on it. This can also change as the pickups settle in. Crap, sometimes I tweak them over the course of a month or so.

    If you get the pickup where it sounds the best but notice you have a little volume difference in strings then you can adjust the pole pieces to taste.

    Every pickup will have a sweet spot in a guitar. It's up to you to find out where it works for you and the guitar. :slash:

    Versatile?

    I cannot start to describe the tonal improvement on my Epi SG Custom. Those Pro-mod are just awesome. Beautiful clean, delightful "chucka-chucka", take OD and fuzz like a champ. The "ice pick on metal" sound is gone.

    Thank you Kevin for such amazing pickups.

    You are very welcome a thanks for making my night with your kind words. :cheers:

    The more I thought about your set the more I was happy we decided to go hotter on the middle position. :naughty:

    Get me a good picture and I'll put you up on my new Fuelie equipped page I am building for my website. ;)

    All Fuelied up..great customer service/short production time/and overall a great product.
    He says when u get them the pickups they tend to sound brittle at 1st,and then after a few hours your guitar will begin to make noises you never heard before.hahaha All I can say is if it sounds like this after 30 minutes im extremely excited about what she will sound like tomorrow.


    Thanks man.

    :applause: Looks great man. I'm also really digging the top on that guitar.

    I've been trying to develop a name for the change I hear in them and the best I can come up with is "organic transition"

    I think I tend to notice it more because I always test through the same settings before I venture off to experiment with tone. All I can say is, keep beating on them. They like it. :naughty:

    Nice top there!


    I have experienced (without having any idea that it would happen...) the pickup ''settling-in'' phenomenon in both cases with new pickups in my Les Paul. At first it happened with the stock BB Pros and then with the Sheptones. It takes a few playing hours and then you feel like everything ''blends-in'' together, the wood & the wire...:hmm: Strange, I know, but you will feel it when it does.
