Hey, I haven't played any Suhrs and didn't know what to put in the bridge of the one I ordered, and I chose the DSH+. Anyone have any experience with them? That's one thing that is making me kind of antsy about my purchase. So, anyone who can put my mind at ease... Smile

Gracias.

I'm sure it's HOT...

You should get some great screaming leads out of it...

Hrmm, maybe I should have just gotten the DSH. I already have two guitars with hotter pickups (LP Std. and PRS Cu24 Brazilian), wanted something for lower levels of distortion. I guess I'll just see how it goes...

What about the regular DSH? I don't know if this will tell you anything, but I love midrange...

Here's what I ordered, in case it will give you any ideas...
Standard style
Chambered
Quilt maple top
Basswood body
Maple neck
Rosewood fretboard
H/S/S

The DSH is a great pickup for the high gain tone. The DSH+ was a little too hot for me.

My new Suhr has the DSV which I love! It compliments the high gain of my Bogner perfectly.






I am always weary of a high gain amp and a hot pickup, but that is only my personal preference.

I think I'm going to change it to the DSV. I really wanted a nice pickup with lots of midrange and mildly hot, but... hrmm...

The DSV is more like Suhr's double-screw version of a PAF. If you are going with a mahogany-based body and neck and want the Allmans or other juicy Les Paul PAF tone, then the DSV is for you.

If you've ever played a Seymour Duncan '59 and a JB and you wish you had something right in between.....then that's the DSH.....it's clear, but cuts.

That's the thing - I already have a Les Paul and I'm trying to kind of get away from a tone that'd be really similar on the bridge. I haven't played a '59 or JB, so... don't really know anything about them. Smile

OK - I see that you have a PRS Custom 24.....that comes stock with an HFS in the bridge. That's a really high-output pickup. Assuming that you still have that pickup in there, the DSV is not quite as hot as the HFS.

Also......I've had a series of standards built with the exact same specs (electronic-wise) with different tone woods (koa, alder, basswood) and each of these lends themselves to certain styles. What are you looking to get out of this guitar? What kind of music would you like to play with it? Who would you like to sound like?

Warm, rich, fat, full. Those are the words that can describe it. I've only been playing for a few years, so I'm not really sure what direction I want to go in. I improvise blues, I attempt to do a bit of jazzy stuff, and I play lots and lots of rock (Rush, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen, The Darkness, Silverchair...), none of which are really meant to be played on a HSS Suhr Standard. Smile

So, I'll say mostly blues improv.

Hmmm...

I'd say go for the DSV...

Now to confuse you more: Have you thought about the SSV???

Rather than double screw, it is single screw... Has more honk than a DSV but the DSV has a "rounder" sound IMO...

To me, both work well for bluesy stuff... I have a DSV in the bridge of my alder Classic and I get plenty of smooth pseudo AC/DC tones out of it...

The DSV sounds rather like what I'm looking for. If I can get that changed on my order, I'm going to do that.

I emailed John Suhr and he responded that I should consider the SSH+, which I'm going to do. Thanks for all your help!
