What's your favorite pickup on JEMs?

What pickups do you guys have in your JEMs? The stock Evos, Duncans, DiMarzios??

Just curiosity...

Oh, and BTW, what's the best pickup combination to nail that Petrucci's distortion sound? It's very heavy and clean at the same time!

Breeds...

...and John used to use an Air Norton in the neck and a Steve's Special in the bridge with Mesa gear... I'm not sure what his pups are in the new MM sig...

I have three Jems and each has different pick-ups. In order of preference: 1) Evolutions... 2) Breeds... 3)PAF's... I just love those Evo's, they scream! --rvj

He now uses "custom wound" Dimarzios. *

I'll go with the PAF Pro's too!!! *I have all three....really think I like the PAF's the best. *They are right down the middle...and in my opinion...just right! *I like the Evo's, I like the Breeds...but if I had to choose....then the PAF's!!!

Though I own a VBK with Paf's I'm going with the Evo's. I tried them once on a 90th model and just loved that kick ***

I like all three -- Evos, PAFs, and Breeds. *They are all great in a different way. *As of this moment I like PAFs the best but it switches around quite a bit depending on my mood.

As I said earlier I love my Evo's, but the PAF's sound better when using effects. The Breed's are muddier and the PAF's are cleaner. Truly I love them all, great versatality between the three.

I think I've never played a guitar with a PAF in the neck position. Does its output match the high output level of the bridge Evo?

Hmm... I thought EVOs would be the most popular favourite. PAF Pros huh? What's the deal with them?
How do you tell someone who's not the most elecrtronically knowledgable?

I prefer Breeds, they match in bridge and neck perfectly for me and i can sound them clean like a crystal or mudd and have more control over my sound. I don't like ultra high gain p/u's like EVO's in neck, i'll prefer Paf Pro, but in bridge is another history.
