I just picked up a 1989 Ibanez 540R with H-S-S configuration!
I really like the tone of the neck and middle pickup (C1), but they are very low output compared to the F1 in the bridge.
The F1 sounds nice, but is a bit on the Vintage side for me.
I have a Tone Zone F-space just laying around and will most likely put that in the guitar.
I am looking for a good (preferably DiMarzio) replacement pickup for the neck and middle position.
I'm mostly a neck pickup player, although I venture into bridge pickup territory for insane harmonics and feedback.
I use lots of gain on my amp (Soldano Lucky 13 - very souped up lead channel).
I like Fender cleans
I'm looking for pickups that are very good with clean or distortion tones.
Sustain is a must.
Note clarity is a must.
Touch Sensitivity is a must.
So far, my favorite neck pickup is the DiMarzio PAF-Pro that is in my JS
-1000. Something similar to this would be fantastic!
