As the title says, i've been using an alnico NBomb in my all-mahogany (+ ebony fboard) Schecter C1 for almost one year now. I'm still feeling it's lacking mids and "balls" (i currently play through a Zoom G2, 5150 sim, and to get a nice metal tone i need to crank up the mids on the eq and still boost them with a booster. i think it's a pretty huge adjustment from a pickup's natural tone). IMHO, even after the mid-boost, it's not as "full" sounding as i expected it to be. Actually lacking some "body" (or "meat"? How do you say that? lol). Well yeah i love open, mid-heavy tones but what the hell this adjustment feels lame to me Important note: i didn't change any of the electronic parts since i bought it (pots, wires, condenser, etc.) so this could be one of the problems. I'm thinking of doing it in future time. Then i'm asking: do i really need to change components in order to get it to sound as its best (will it make such a great difference?), or did i just buy the "wrong" pickup?
