Dear Sneapsters, i just changed the bridge PUP in my Gibson Flying V (build in 1989), took out the EMG 81 and replaced it with a Seymour Duncan Custom (SH-5). Buying PUPs is a difficult thing since you rely on reviews, videos, etc. but in the end you don't really know how a PUP will sound with your guitar. Well, the SH-5 had quite good reviews and the fact that Gary Holt used to play it speaks for itself. So i thought... Bought the PUP, threw it in and... eternal disappointment!!! In my Flying-V the SH-5 produces an overwhelming bass. Super soft, creamy and muddy. This might be ok for some kind of vintage stoner sound but definitively not for fast shredding riffs. I actually somehow like everything else of the SH-5, upper mids and high frequencies are great! But I definitively can't use this PUP without a TubeScreamer to tame the bass. Lowering the PUP height somehow improved the situation but im' still not really happy and consider going back to the EMGs. Are any of you guys having problems with the SH-5 and it's low end?
