Which pickups should I use? - dimme some hints guys....


I have a RG 570 that I want to change pickups on.
I though :

Steve's Special

Because: effective in dual sound and coil splitting clean modes, as Dimarzio says. I think ala Petrucci clean, hopefully.


Because: Satch use it in coil splitting, and that is that I going to do with it. And use volume pull stuff...but who does the FRED sound in neck position? joe uses his in brigde.

Then all the questions:
How does I coil tap the two pickups to get a "petrucci-sound"?
Anyone got a wiring diagram or something over volume pull and tone pull?

hehe... this is going to be something like the amazing petrucci's clean, and joe brutal distortion!
All help here would be very fine!

I have the diagram of petrucci's wiring and a diagram over coil spliting 2 humbuckers using a 3-way switch. (that is what I going to use...)

More questions later.
