Just installed DiMarzios in my RGT

I didn't realize how horrible the Infinity pickups were until I installed my new EVO 2 and Air Norton. Everything is clear and separated, well defined and articulate. Crunch tones seem to be full bodied and cleans are just as nice as can be.
The Infinity 1 and 2 can't even be sold on eeebaaay because they would infect the tone
pool. I'll post pics later...Rich

I do love me some DiMarzio's, tho my tag team of choice is the Air Noton/Tone Zone. I had the INF's in an old 350DX and it just sounded really bassy, even in the bridge. Congrats on the switch, sounds like you made a good choice.

Re: Just installed DiMarzios in my RGT

I have a basswood Ibanez that the previous owner installed Tone Zone/Air Norton in place of the stock Ibanez pickups. I'll qualify this by saying that I really don't like the Tone Zone, but it is just awful in a basswood guitar. It's OK in my mahogany guitars, but it just is wrong with the basswood. On the other hand, I love the Air Norton in the neck, even more than I like it in the mahogany guitars.

Insanity! The TZ is HORRIBLE in Mahogany! I love it in basswood and alder though.

I think it's horrible period, but I was just trying to say something nice about it!

Alas, I must disagree. The Tone Zone is a fine pickup that sounds great through my rig. Basswood, mahogany, alder...sounds great in all different wood guitars I have.
