Meh, they started getting a bit hotter as the years went on, and his tone started evolving into what it was circa the Balance album. I'm talking about getting that early VH raw chewey brown sound. A Seymour Duncan 59 in the bridge is a very good choice for this application.

I don't know. Wasn't trying to prove you wrong or anything, just thought I'd mention that about the pups in my EVH. That guitar was released around the time that For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge was released. I think that was the only album he recorded with the Music Man before moving onto to Peavey.

A word about the pups in my EVH. Very mid-rangy and very hot. The sound is a lot more "creamier" than the Tone Zone. I've actually been considering slapping a Tone Zone into the EVH, really not that crazy about the stock pups..

jeez... light bulb finally goes off in my head.
I always wondered how he was getting that subtle change in tone during his leads and that would explain it.
Thanks for the info. :)
