I've read about 20 threads concerning pickup swap for a baswood body guitar.
Problem is - I only get to do this once - I'm geting a used galaxy white rg2550z half priced in mint condition BUT with stock IBZ..
Before you flame me how to use search tools in jemsite - I'll summerize my final decision:
My style of playing is mainly blues,prog.rock,all sort of roots of metal with satriani / vai /gilbert fusion. Lots of shredding (80's metal) - more fusion.
I use tremolo allot - actually I think I discovered the durabillity of EZII - 3.5 years of everyday use. That's as far as it goes.
So I need the playability and most of all=> harmonic overtones
<=without sacrifising tone !!!!
1. paf pro / fred
I'm afraid this selction won't be enough when I pour in some metal gain
1.a mo'joe / steve's special ( my 1st favourite )
2. Liquifire / Crunch Lab
3. Air zone / Breed or Paf Pro Breed
( Actually Alaska sudgested evos and breed in many threads I've read)
I need harmonics , harmonics is what I need
