Pickups for my RG...


So I have been reading alot of the pickup threads posted. I am looking for a classic sounding pickup.

Guitar: RG2XXV (Basswood/Rosewood/Trem/24 frets) going with H/H set up with only a volume knob as I never really use the tone knob on the guitar.
5-way switch (Bridge/Bridge split/both split/Neck Split/Neck)

Music: Classic Rock/Classic Metal..AC/DC,Black Sabbath,Judas Priest,80's/90's Rock/Metal

Amps: Marshall Haze 15H>212 Loaded with WGS Vet 30/ET-65
Blackstar HT-20 combo w/WGS Vet 30

Want to go with Dimarzio for the crazy colors....

I was thinking a Tone Zone/Air Norton. I really liked the TZ in my Charvel SoCal but it was Alder. I have read the Classic pickup choice is a Dimarzio Super D/PAF Pro combo. I was thinking of going with that as I am more than likely going with a TZ in my 02' Fender MIA OFR strat since I loved it in my Charvel.

Super Distortion and PAF Pro are a good pick. A newer set is the new Steve Lukather Transition set. They are very good too.

Re: Pickups for my RG...


all the pickups you two have suggested are great. If you are playing older stuff though you may want something a little brighter.

I suggest the crunch lab, or maybe a mo'joe or even fred. The humbucker from hell in the neck is a great full clear pickup that does single coil clarity with humbucker punch and fullness.

i would listen to some demos and then figure out if you are looking for a brighter sound or more of warm sound.

Thanks for the advice,I ended buying a purple set: Super D bridge & Liquifire neck after doing several different selections on the Dimarzio site those came up most
