D-Activator or Dimebucker Q`s???

So I own both a Dimebucker and a D-Activato and never really tried both, after what I`ve read online, sounds like I want a D-Activator in my T.O.M project: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f18/rg...on-118382.html

Any opinions??

Another question is, what is a good warm chunky neck pickup I could buy, looking for a blues ish but still hot humbucker for the RG27 TOM. I think I`ll want to stay Dimarzio if I go with the D-Activator in bridge.

Thanks!

i've used both, and you're pretty much dead on. a dimebucker is great, but that's always better with a tremolo. The d-activator is best used with string-thru or a fixed bridge.

I know it's not DiMarzio, but check out the new Railhammers. The Chisel neck might be right up your alley. I reviewed them on a TOM bridge guitar, amazing pickups.

Cool, thanks! I hear good things about them as well, may be worth a try!

I have dactivator in my mahogany s with zr trem and tried my friends dimebucker in his mahogany fixed bridge.
I found the dimebucker to have way to much treble and hot, dactivator has better palm mutes and better for alternate picking imo
