Re: Best blend of Vai, Satch, and Petrucci?
Yeah i see what you guys mean that it's gonna be hard to find one that fits all three sounds. I don't aim to be able to duplicate all of their tones with one guitar, but I'm trying to find something that doesn't go to far in one direction.
In the bridge position, I'm looking for pickup that screams but has slightly rounded highs so it's smoother and not as sharp as the Evo, but still has presence that cuts through the mix and has a lot of harmonics like the Evo, and calms down and when the volume and tone are rolled off.
In the neck, I'm looking for something that is warm and fat, but not muddy or too heavy on the low end. It should have clear, sparkling clean tones, and pronounce chords well, with or without distortion.
I looked around DiMarzio's website and the D Sonic, Super Distortion, and Breed stood out to me. I'll shoot them an email though and see what they think.
Any other suggestions?
