Pickups for RG2027XVV - help me finally decide

Right here's the plan :

Blaze II or Tone zone 7 for the bridge (whichever is heaviest)

Sustainiac transducer in neck and a single coil pickup (cant find much info on em)

Can anyone who has tried these pups please post there opinions

I haven´t really tried the blazeII so I don´t know much of it but i´ve heard that it´s been compared to Steve´s Special.
I´ve got a JPM P3 with a Steve´s Special and a Rg2027 with a Tone Zone and I would say that the TZ is definately heavier. I´d say that the Steve´s Special is harsher... but I´m not too good at these kind of things since I´m not a huge gearhead. And of course we´re not talking about Steve´s Special here.

But one thing I´m sure about is that the ToneZone sounds frikin´ awesome on my 2027!!! :biggrin:

Heavy is good indeed! If you get a tone zone tell me if it really is heavy, as I'd like to find out seeing as I am thinking of putting one in a guitar I plan to put together... But as I've said before, the blazeII does me fine.

Good luck man!
