I don't dislike it exactly, i'd say it lacks a full complete tone, if that makes sense. I want a pickup to have more body and more attack. The stock for me lacks a lot of midrange. For me it doesn't have an even tone, I'd define it by having a naturally scooped voicing and I know that this kind of tone defines the Stingray but ehhmm
... If I boost the mids, it gives me a very nasally tone which I really don't like. I was searching for audio examples and I've come across with this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE5wDSjrZts
which the seymour duncan (3:40 mark more or less) defines the tone that I am looking for which I consider really even. Hope this wall of text makes any sense and thanks for looking.
