..... shucks, that was just a lucky guess. I say Evo's and EvoII for bridge! Unless it's a Strat or LP...??? We are talking JEM/RG right?

Re: new pups

I have always prefered Seymour Duncan pups to Dimarzio, and will always suggest them over Dimarzios aswell !

this is what i am in the process of getting installed into my S520 -

NECK - S.D SH-2 Jazz
BRIDGE - S.D SH-10 full shred

Re: new pups

it's an rg470, not sure what wood the body is, i want a nice thick vai neck tone, and a mean agressive brige pup, what would be best for that? also thinking of doing the s too, but not sure what to go with.

BKP (Bare Knuckle Pickups) Nailbomb in the bridge, VHII in the neck and a Slowhand in the middle. Definitely.
