550 Reissue pickup question
Ive got an RG550 Reissue coming in the mail, stock pickups are getting the boot. Ive always stayed away from DiMarzio, since you never see anyone with a real heavy tone using them. I kinda wanted to use DiMarzios. I want Hums with pole pieces and not bars i.e. X2N.
Im thinking Evo's? Will they stand up to a burly metal tone as well as rock?
Those or D-Activators..
Kinda feel guilty putting EMG's in this, but I will if I cant find a suitable DiMarzio. Oh yeah, they are going to be green DiMarzios to give it a different look.
Im also thinking of having it painted Desert Yellow since the stock black is beat to hell and chipped up. I figured since the paint is screwed its lost any collector value, so painting it yellow wont hurt.
