new pups for my rg 470?

i want new, better pups for my 470, but can't decide what to get. I was thinking evo's, but i don't know if they'll have the tone i'm looking for, i'm also looking at the super dist. and dimebucker, any suggestions?

Well, you specifically mentioned a tone that you're looking for. What sort of tone might that be? Knowing that will affect the recommendations tremendously.

I'd say one of the most popular combos seems to be PAF PRO Neck and TONE ZONE Bridge

Re: new pups for my rg 470?

some very popular combos and pickups

Breeds in both positions
Tone Zone in Bridge Air Norton in Neck (most well known combo)
PAF Pro in both positions (my personal favorite)
Fred in Bridge Paf Pro in Neck
Evolutions of course in both positions
Steves Special in Bridge and Air Norton in Neck

Those are always the fan favorites

ya i'm looking for a real hot tone in the bridge, but still clear and a really warm tone in the neck.
