Re: guitar help

I think the 490 is a horrible pickup. For me way to trebly and thin. I changed mine in my explorer to a Barenuckle Miracle Man and all was good. For a Gibson i think i would also go with Duncans over DiMarzios. A JB in mahogany guitar sounds nice. If you can stay with Gibson Pub's . The one Cid mentioned or the burstbuckers are great fat sounding Pickups.

Re: guitar help

Ya know, ...this might be a sin but I have to ask the question, ...I wonder if a Tone Zone might get me a Frank Gambale type tone in the bridge and if it would match well with the stock neck pickup. Frank tone like Final Frontier. I love both lead and rythm tones in this song. I'm a Gambale newb. I just found his website a couple of days ago and downloaded some songs. I'm just blown away by his tone. It is very "me", very what I like.

Probably, I run the SG into a Fulldrive 2 into an Orange AD30 to an Avatar with 2 Vintage 30s.
