Replacing pickups in a 550...
The guy from Giant (cannot remember his name for the life 'o me), Gary Moore (still got the blues, for example), Blues Saraceno, John Sykes, Ross Childress (Collective Soul), Whoever was in Tyketto (like anybody is going to know them), Gary Hoey, Billy Duffy (the Cult), The lead guitarist from Savatage/Trans Siberian orchestra (Al Pitrelli???), and Chris DeGarmo from Queensryche.
NOTE: I don't think ANY of these guys are using DiMarzio...Are they?
However, these are the guys whose playing style I like (but whose tone I don't);
Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Alex Liefson (sp?>Rush), Alex Skolnik, and Michael Lee Firkins.
Now, In my 3120 I LOVE the Tone Zone. *Really, I do. *But to be honest I have never had a Duncan in there. *I had a JB in a little Alder Yamaha I had and wasn't really impressed, but loved the same pickup in a Les Paul Studio Lite I had. *I keep thinking I need to just buy all Les Pauls, but I don't like playing them and they weight a ton. *When I look at the Duncan site and listen to their sound files, it all sounds pretty much the same to me. *I have a Tone Zone I can put there, but I also have a Distortion and a JB. *Are any of these going to get me what I want?
