Well the time has come to further enhance my tone and i thought a great place to start is my pickups. I have a Jackson Ke3 Kelly which has a rosewood fretboard and alder body. I think it has SD JBs in it but im not sure. However Im looking for that 80s hair metal crunch tone and cant seem to find it with these. They have too much highs for my liking and have way too much bite. So i am looking for something a little bit warmer, and crunchier to get that 80s hair metal sound. I was looking at some Lynch Screamin Demons but send me some suggestions.

Try out some Dimarzio Super Distortions. I know a lot of 80's guys used those. I know Paul Gilbert likes them and Joe Satriani used them on his first record I think.
