Basswood RG project: PAF Joe (N) and Breed (B)?
About to build up a basswood RG so I contacted DiMarzio about a pickup combo recommendation. They recommended a PAF Joe in the neck position with an F-spaced Breed in the bridge position. I'd like to gather your opinions, experiences, and suggestions. Thanks!
Here's what I asked them, specifically:
"This guitar will have two doublecoils and will be exclusively used to play hard rock, metal, perhaps a little alternative rock. No blues, jazz, or anything like that."
"I prefer a fairly bright sound and play little or no rhythm. I want to avoid any lead being played high on the neck from sounding too “tinny”, but want to avoid any overall “muddiness” when I do play clean or play chords. Distortion is provided by a DOD deathmetal pedal and/or the classic RAT pedal"
