Pickup recommendation


My PAW tribute Jem project is going smoothly, should have my new neck in a week or two! Now I originally wanted to use Evos in all positions, which sound epic and full of win, but I absolutely freakin' LOVE the tones from the Liquifire/Crunch Lab combo!

So now I am going to install Petrucci pickups in the bridge & neck, but now I need a single-coil for the mid that will work well with those 2 pups. What do you guys think?

EMGs are nice, but asthetically, a black rectangle would not look good on a swirled body.

Evo 2, True Velvet and Evolution neck. Can't beat that combo.
