So yeah, consistency is an illusion. Choose what sounds good to you and go with it, that's the bottom line.
In the end, that's all that really counts.
I have a Parker custom shop DF522NN (NN for Notes Norton). Duncan P-Rail pickups that give me very good P90 sounds, decent rail sounds and good series humbucker and parallel humbucker sounds. Alder body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard, hardened stainless steel frets, sperzel tuners, and a piezo under the bridge that I can mix with the mag pickups.
But I stress my first instrument is saxophone. Guitar is my 7th so I don't have nearly as many years of experience on it. After saying that I understand lifelong guitarists can hear what I can't yet.
