After deciding that my Am Pro with the GM 62z sounded too close to my Am Performer with the Yosemite pickups, I took a look at what other pickups I had, and I realized that when I decided that I didn't like the stock V-Mod pickups, it was when I had the Boss Katana 50, which had a tendency to sound somewhat harsh and shrill to me, so maybe it wasn't the V-Mod pickups, but the amp that gave that guitar those properties. So, I put the original V-Mod pickups back in the Pro, and I love them. They don't quite have as sparkly of a high end as the 62z, but they're a bit more expressive and dynamic, and in comparison, perhaps make the 62z sound slightly thin and sterile. They definitely are a bit warmer on the low end, and maybe a little more touch responsive too. I'm digging them a lot with the THR10C amps. I've also recently switched from EB SS to Fender 250 9s on my guitars for the same reasons. They're a little less sterile sounding, are more dynamic and expressive, seem to stay in tune better, last longer, and bend a lot easier too.
