Dimarzio Breed/Air Norton Neck, SD Hot Rail, SD SH5

I am in love with the high gain boost sound along with the djent metal crunch... Similar to this song

I have an RG350 with rosewood finger board, basswood body, maple neck


I was wondering how this set up would go: I will be puutting in a 500K push pull pot in there! Just to brighten things up a bit.

Breed Neck OR Air Norton

Seymour Duncan Hot Rails Middle (buying from ebay as a BRIDGE pickup)

Seymour Duncan SH5

Is this suitable for the guitar and the sound i'm looking for? do they even fit the guitar?

They Duncan SH5 is a killer pickup, but make sure you order the TB5 (Trembucker sizing, space thing as F-spacing on DiMarzios) so it matches your string spacing.

Some people say the F space is not that important? and I plan on getting the D-Activator X for neck instead of the breed. (cheaper with same seller on shipping)

So the SH-5 is regular spaced (1-15/16" pole spacing). Would this work on the RG350 with an edge zero II trem?

Any humbucker will fit in there.
You just have to decide on the ones that will give you the sound you want.
To better help you--it would be nice to know what amp and effects you're using.

I don't know bass wood body or Ibanez. I have Breed in my HSH MIA Strat. It sounds very good. It is a little darker than DP151, perfect for a brighter guitar like Strat. I use 500K volume pot, but I have to put a 500K resistor in parallel when split to single coil to tame a little on the glassiness. It is very easy and can be done on the same DPDT switch that do the splitting so I have 500K for hb and 250K for single coil.

It is just as good for Strat neck as PAF PRO in Les Paul neck.
