Re: Replacement Pickups for RGA 121
Give us a description on what type of sound you like.
The Paf Joe and Mo Joe setup will for sure be more versatile than the Petrucci setup.
It is more "in the middle" both sound and output wise, a setup that would do a good job no matter what humbucker sound your going for. The Petrucci setup are also great, but more to the shred/metal side of things (but not limited too).
The Joe setup are more traditional, if I should put it like that.
I have 3 different RGA121 setups, one that are Tone Zone (B) and Humbucker From Hell (N), one that are Breed (B) and Breed (N) and one that are Virtual Hot Paf (B) Virtaul Paf (N).
I love all 3, but for different reasons.
The Virtual Paf are the most versatile of the 3, in my opinion. I can bring that for any gig from very soft and clean stuff, to rock and blues, fusion and shred, about up to were hard rock mets metal.
I would put the DiMarzio 36th PAF in all 3 if I would change them today.
They would be perfect for you adriandavidb.
They might be a bit to weak for you legobricks (since you are looking at high gain monsters like D-Activator X, cool pickups, but not very versatile).
