Correct position to mount a dimarzio Evo

Well Seymour Duncan pickups got their name written on the face of the pickup so its impossible to mount it backward.
But how do you guide yourself to correctly facing a dimarzio evo pickup into a prestige 1570?
Where the holl of the pickup wires comes out, should be close to the pickup cavity boddy holl?

Thanks

Re: Correct position to mount a dimarzio Evo

Only some Dimarzios matter what way they go in, EVOs don't matter.
A good rule of thumb with Dimarzios is bridge, wire down towards the knobs and neck, up away from the knobs. If the polls look the same, they are in 99% of the cases. Sometimes you will see screws and lugs or screws and allens. These matter what way they go in the body.

Evos do have dual resonance patent, and they sound a lot different when flipped around.

Even pickups with symmetrical coils such as the Liquifire and Breed sound different when you install them reversed, because both coils can't be 100% identical.

LOL YES YOU SHOULD Jono, the information was provided for you above in the second post, and the facts were givin in the third post, WOW.

But I suppose Dimarizo has no clue what there talking about on there pups.


This is copied a pasted from the dimarizo link posted above,

(Some humbuckers have just a slightly different sound if you flip them to the opposite direction. There is no right or wrong orientation, but it’s a matter of preference for such a subtle difference, if you can hear the difference at all. Models that sound slightly brighter with the cable exit toward the bridge include:
Blaze™ Neck
D Activator™ Bridge
D Activator™ Neck
Evo 2™
Evolution® 7
Evolution® Bridge
Evolution® Neck
FRED®
Mo' Joe™
Virtual P-90™)

and I have a few sets of EVO's, and have them flipped on this, and they sound slightly brighter!

Evos sound like Evos (this may sound redundant but continue reading) when the bridge pickup is installed north up and the neck pickup is north down, while if you flip both around, you'll get extremely solo-oriented tones that are not as viable for rhythm/crunch/metal IMO and a big part of the typical Evo sound will be gone.

Firstly, the name's Jono - check that fact, miss jamm'n jenny

And yes you're right, the correct link was given but without quoting the info in question, another member subsequently posted that the orientation didn't matter with Evo's, which as you've correctly stated is not the case. I didn't want this to cause confusion.

All I'm asking is that if folks aren't 100% sure of the info they're posting up, then they shouldn't post it up till they've checked

LOL, Wow name calling really?
It was a miss spelling at my end, for that I'm sorry I was not poking fun at your name, it honestly was a mistake, I will go and edit that now, again sorry.

And after the dimarzo web link your still gonna say your right ?
Again DIRECTLY FROM THE DIZARMO WEB SITE!:
