Well passives vs actives for one. Maybe that seems a bit "hurr durr", but for me now, I played for nearly 10 years w/ EMGs and really am sick of all actives because of it. I don't hold on to active pickup guitars for long at all, because I don't like how they respond to the guitar as much. It seems like a silly insinuation to make, but I do a lot more bedroom guitar playing where I can only hear my own instrument, so i'm a lot more attuned to a detail such as that.
Personally I felt like the Moderns did not allow for a Drop Eb bar chord to come in clear - it was a lot more muddied and I believe that had to do with the higher output. And I'll add that that is even further more surprising due to the Boden having a longer multiscale neck than the Tao. Even when using the other voicings to try to tame it down, it just didn't have a tone that suited my taste.Is the low end *that* much more defined on these Schecter USA pickups? is it something in the low mids making the Moderns a bit boxy or tubby comparatively? also curious to know what gauges you're rocking in Eb.
For now I'm using the factory strings that came with the guitar, they're still fresh for now and feel solid.
