I've played with the AX100, and with the G50 with the *same* guitar
and p/u. (GK2a as it happens).
They seemed pretty similar to me, not surprising as they are essentially
the same axon circuitry in a different box.
The A50 was released without claims of better tracking than the AX100.
In fact, I have them both here so will likely try a detailed comparison.

I'd be guessing the change of p/u caused the change in behaviour.
Is it possible your GK wasn't installed in the optimum position?

 so you guys got me wanting a graphtech p/u
( well, I really don't like the clunky GK 2a, )
