Pickup thoughts for VWY

I've been considering a Breed in the neck and a evolution in the bridge setting... What do you think? The guitar itself should have a wider palette of tones this way?

Really cutting tone in the bridge, mellow and fat in the neck.. and then the middle of course =)

Kind of a crappy way of going about things, but try the different or get soundclips of people's guitars who have them and give them a listen before you buy something you may be unhappy with. Just a thought though...

I play in a band that runs the gamut of different musical styles on any given night.

I've found that I get a really wide variety of tones from Jem with an Evo in the Bridge, a PAF Pro in the neck and pick a nice hot middle pickup (i use Virtual 2).

I found the breeds to be much less warm than the PAF Pro. If you want to hear my stuff, drop me a line and i'll shoot some mp3s over to you.

Here's one to start...


I made this little demo to show all the different sound of the pickups from my Jem. This is from this past April.

Each verse has a different sound...

Starts with clean, Neck/Middle split.
Drums in -> Neck only/improv
Melody Verse 1-> Neck only
Melody Verse 2-> Bridge only
Solo 1->Neck with blues tone (a bit of O/D)
Solo 2->Bridge w/ same blues tone
Melody Verse 3->Neck w/ Full-on O/D
Solo 3->Bridge w/Full-on O/D plus Wah (my new Boss Pw-10 V-Wah :biggrin
Ending->Same w/ wah off.

Discliamer: This is the second take of a straight in/non-multitrack recording. 100% live guitar w/sequence. I only did it to provide a tone comparison - I know the playing needs work
