Re: new pickups in 2550

thats the same combo i was going to go for in the mid and bridge, but i was going to either put an evolution or breed in the neck

Re: new pickups in 2550

Thanks for the replies, just one more quick question. Do I need F spaced Pickups? I think that I do, I just want clarification on this matter before I order them. Any answers will be greatly appreciated, thanks guys

Re: new pickups in 2550

I did have this setup on my JCRG (now with Steve's Special in the Bridge) but the Air Norton/Blue Velvet/Tone Zone was extremely versatile. The tone Zone made great rhythms and leads whilst the Air Norton created great harmonics, clean tones and smooth lead tones. When the BV and AN is in parallel or the TZ and BV (parallel) you get a great clean tone and it's also very clear with overdrive on. I recommend this setup

I had a SS/AN combo on a 570, only i left the stock S1... that thing rocked, only problem was i had to raise the S1 a lil so the volume difference wasnt so noticeable

Yes, you need F-spaced pickups.
