Yep, Ibanez JPM days. Personally, to me, the best tone he ever had.

Re: Custom jem owners or modified jem's

Agreed 100%. The tone on the LTE albums was still great, but after that it got a bit worse each year.

Martyr: Biaxident for me is the best song of all the LTE work. Nice work getting it down I'd love to take a crack at it, but my 21 fret strat doesn't really let me

Re: Custom jem owners or modified jem's

Thanks for posting petrucci's pup configuration! I just ordered his old combo in green
and an evolution middle pickup as well. Can't wait to get this guitar put together.

You should be the person to ask about pickups. You recommended me exactly what I wanted with the EVO 2 and PAF pro though the middle pickup was my idea. I swear by the HS - 3

I like a more mid range tone think of that AC/DC tone with more edge or that Fair warning tone. When I go clean I can get those Andy Summers type tones.

You should be a pickup consultant.
Thanks bro. I'm glad you found the sound you liked and I will definitely give the HS-3 a chance for my next single (Jem custom HSH and Jem custom HxS) I get most of my info from jemsite members (falbo, jaxadam, rty#### (Rich)) and from just buying and trying different ones.
