Lower output pickups for Axis?

Lower output pickups for Axis?


I know so many people rave about their Axis pickups, but I am finding more and more that everything is sounding too “mushy” when I play with a lot of gain (just hard rock, not numetal or anything). I am thinking of changing the pickups out to see if that helps. I know some people recommend lower output pickups to help resolve this kind of issue. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe Bare Knuckle VHII or something.

Goal is to achieve rhythm tones that are tight with good note definition when playing chords, without being too harsh sounding. Somewhere between what I have now and the crisp “pop” that I get from my tele bridge pickup. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
