Re: DiMarzio Pickups
I supposed it needs to be asked, What are you trying to get out of your sound? I only have first hand experience with the breed neck pickup (basswood), and Evos (Alder, mahogany, basswood). EVO pickups are known to be particularly bright. Breeds are less so and lower output, but also apparently designed with basswood in mind. I personally think the amp you'll be running through is more important than the wood. If you're amp has a dark character EVOs might be perfect, if brighter they might be painful. My Jem for example sounds amazing through my otherwise muddy Crate V50-112 drive channel.
Depending on how deeply you buy into the whole tone wood idea, mahogany ideally tames some of the high end of the EVO, but might make the Breed muddy. I have heard that the Breed neck pickup makes a decent bridge pickup in mahogany though. I had an EVO in an Ibanez S470 (mahogany) and it was more piercing than what I get out of one in alder(Jem7v) or basswood(jem70V). The EVO2 is way more balanced in my basswood RG2550, than the EVO has been in any guitar I've played it in.
The dark matter 2 pickups were designed to go with the mahogany JEM77WDP, so you can always pull up videos of that to get an idea of the sound.
