They're quite bright in this guitar, and VERY hot. This guitar gives me the most issue with hum when recording via the computer as the pickups are pretty sensitive.
Have a nose at :Fickle Freedom: on my myspace (myspace.com/desd1nova) for the Washburn with egnaters, and compare to :Given: which is my Ibanez Radius
I find the Egnater pickups in this guitar make it real easy to get a new style VH tone!
