Which Pickup - Tone Zone. Evolution, other??
Does anyone have any suggestions for my Ibanez PL1770? *
My main guitar is a PRS CE22 with a mahogony body and a maple top. *It has Dragon pickups in it. *I would like my Ibanez to be my backup but since I started using the PRS, the bridge humbucker on the Ibanez(stock) seems really weak. *I would like to emulate the PRS tone as much as possible and while I understand that it will never sound the same, I would like to hear some suggestions.
The Ibanez has a basswood body and my setup is gtr --> boss stompbox tuner --> crybaby wah --> digitech whammy (when I'm not being lazy, I put this in the fx loop) --> Rivera K100. *I play mostly high gain stuff with the occasional clean part. *
The reasons for wanting a similar sound as the PRS is because of the highly sensitive knobs on the Rivera (If you own one you know what I'm talking about!!!). *This is a good thing, but when you switch guitars and need to dial in a new sound, it can take a while because of how flexible the Rivera is.
I've been considering Dimarzio and specifically the Tone Zone or Evolution. *I have a Duncan JB Jr, in my strat and do NOT like it much. *It seems too muddy in high gain settings. *I aslo want to stay with a passive pickup.
I appreciate any feedback from the gear junkies out there. *Thanks in advance.
