Anyone tried Dimarzio EJ Customs in a basswood RG?
I have so many RGs with 'regular' Dimarzios - Tone Zone, PAF Pro, Evo, etc etc etc, that I really feel it's time for something a bit different in my swirly custom. I'd like something that sounds a little edgy and gritty, and I recently played the new Taylor solid body with Gretsch-inspired pickups. That got me to thinking if the Dimarzio EJ Customs, which are deisgned to make Eric Johnson's SG sound like a Gretsch, would suit my needs in this RG.
I'm also thinking of using a Solo Pro in the middle for its similarity to the P-90.
I guess to some this would be sacreligious, putting such 'vintage' sounding pickups in a shred guitar, but I want to try something a bit different with this one.
