Re: other paul gilbert pickups

he also used the super 2 back in the old racer x days.

in my opinion, the paf pro, fs-1, tone zone rig is very versatile. basically a mix of PG in a hsh setup.

on the dimarzio website, before the new one, it said that he used a h.f.h and it provided a demo of it, it was B.R.O.

Re: other paul gilbert pickups

He used Super Distortions back during RacerX because that was before cooler pickups came out such as the PAF pro and Tone Zone. He had them wired in Parallel for extra clarity.

When PAF pro came out, he jumped on that because its a very clear pickup and its still one of his favorites, he still puts it on his PGMs. They're my favorite pickup, just very simple, and trebly, and clear. Its like a fat humbucker with near-single coil clarity.

He also really likes Tone Zones, another awesome pickup. They are more bassy and have more of a midrange honk, which is fun for Mattias Jabs/Michael Scheinker impressions. (I go though many of these sessions during any given jam )

Im sure he's experimented with all the pickups, but he sticks with Paf Pros and Tone Zones, those are his staples. Humbucker from Hell is another one of his favorites, but he doesnt use them as often as the TZ and PAF Pro.
