Re: Dimarzio Evolutions vs. V7
There is a HUGE difference. The V series pickups are really a joke, most people hate them.
However, placing an evo in a basswood body might not be the best idea. Many have done it and loved it, but I much prefer the ToneZone for RG basswood bodies. It sounds amazing, and gives you much needed mids and lows to compensate for the light basswood characteristics.
An evo in basswood is just too harsh and brittle. Bear in mind that evo's were designed to go into the newer alder bodied Jems. There is a big difference between alder and basswood.
A PAF Pro would be an excellent choice to mate with the ToneZone for the neck pos.
