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 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.
