About to pull the trigger, this pickup combo ok?
Gday, got a 1570, atm has a D-activator x in the neck and an evo in the bridge and stock s1 in the mid. Im going to re-wire the guitar and replace the pots which are pretty worn out and also replace the bridge and middle pickup. I really like the d activator x neck so ill keep that.
I find that for metal (nothing too extreme just some metallica pantera etc from time to time) the evo has a bit to much of a twang, and although it sounds excellent when my mini recto is cranked right up, it leaves a little to be desired when riffing at lower volumes. On the ohter hand my EMG equipped epiphone is far too powerful for my tastes.
For this reason i figure a d-activator x might work well in the bridge. While im at it ill also replace the mid pickup with either an Air Norton S or more likely a chopper.
Sound like a sensible combo?
