Dimarzios for an RGA
I have an RGA 121 and I'm trying to pick a set of Dimarzios.
I need versatility. I play either tech metal, hard rock, or post rock instrumental ambient stuff. yes, i do have multiple personalities. haha.
for the bridge:
i love mids for my distortion. crunch = happy. i need the bass to be tight. i need aggressive and in your face sound too. organic too, hearing that grainy sound of the wood... yeah... people find weird ways to describe tone.
i need it to sound good split for cleans too. i'm not too picky on my cleans, just as long as they aren't a bassfest of mud.
for the neck:
i need something bright that will cut through for leads. the neck is where i'm more picky for cleans. once again it needs to be bright so it can sound clear when it's split. of course when i say bright i don't mean so much that my ears kill, but sparkly and clear.
I don't want super high output (X2N, Drop Sonic, D Activator) in either position unless it can do it without being muddy, buzzy, squeaky, and sloppy.
I have been thinking that the Super 3 and PAF pro fit both of these descriptions quite well. I have also thought about a set of breeds or evolutions.
Thanks a lot to anyone who read this and responded!
