petrucci's pickup sets
hey i was writing to see if someone could clear this up for me. im a massive fan of john petrucci(what sane guitarist isnt?), and i know he has used a few pickup combos over the years, i was just wondering when. i know he has used the 'Tone Zone- Humbucker from hell' combo, and the 'Steves special-Air norton' combo'. i was wondering when he changed combos. i always thought he used the TZ/HH combo for images and words, and he used the SS/AN combo for Awake, right up untill he changed to musicman guitars. but i see that the steves special wasnt made untill 1995 and Awake came out in 1994, so was he using the tone zone for Awake? Also, in his old black and white picasso seven string, i see that the neck pickup pole pieces are the 'alan key' type' not the 'stud' type. does that mean he didnt have an air norton 7 in his ibanez 7-string? was it a blaze neck pickup? I know he used a universe before he got a custom 7 made, maybe he liked the blaze neck.
