Ibanez USAF2 - what is your opinion? - for potential placeme

Anyone care to share their experience with this pickup? I'm looking to replace a IBZUSA hum in my RG and want to get some added power and high-end. The IBZUSA is real PAF'ish but not really a "hot" pickup - does anyone know if the F2 is higher output? Maybe you remember that old 770 or 540 LTD you used to have. Thanks for any help.

Ibanez USAF2 - what is your opinion?

Yeah, the F2 is hotter. *F2 at bridge & F1 at neck is a good combo.

I thought the F2 sounded a little thin in my 540 sabre - a Tone Zone was better and makes the sabre sing (the F1 is GREAT at the neck!)

But the F2 sounded great in an old alder body from a 1984 Kramer Pacer (with a Carvin neck - don't ask!). *So it depends on the axe. *Plenty of people like the F2 in sabre bridge position, so maybe it's just me...
