Seymore Duncan vs. Dimarzio
I am pretty new to this web site and it is really obvious that most of you are really fond of Dimarzio pickups. I am curious about this. I have owned about 15 different guitars in my time with all kinds of pickups. I went through an EMG 81 phases, then did play X2Ns for several years. These days every guitar I own except my new Jem 7VWH has a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck or Custom Custom model in the bridge. My neck pickups vary - Alinco Pro II, Jazz, ESP hot rail single coil, etc... I really like the Evolutions but still find something very "Dimarzio" about them. My last Dimarzio clad guitar had a Tone Zone in the bridge and PAF Pro in the neck. THat guitar (an old 550) was tuned down to C# and it sounded cool with the Tone Zone. I am not anti-Dimarzio. I just think that Duncan's have a certain warmth that I can't generally get with Dimarzios. I am interested in your opinions on this issue.
