EVO on mahogany

Hi ya'll
I'd like to know who here has a guitar with a mahogany body and has Evolution pups on it (Bridge or Neck). I'd like to know how does it sound like.
I've just bought a RG3120 prestige, and it has a mahogany body, with a flamed maple top and it comes stock with a PAF PRO and a TONEZONEBut i'm thinking about putting EVOS 'se i'm more into VAI sound.

People say that the evo is a little Trebbly, but i think it won't be that trebly in a mahogany bodied guitar. What your opinion?

i want a fat and full sound i9n bridge and neck, and i don't like to hear the pick atack (tec tec) does the EVO hides this sound more than other pups?

I'll elaborate more after lunch, but i'll start with this much- I don't like mahogany, but an EVO7 in my 2027 almost made it bearable. Thick, sustaining, "screaming" lead tone. cuts beautifully. highly recommended (and Vai's "lacewood" is outfitted this way, and it was enough to convert rich harris, so... )

I would think that Evo's would work very well with mahogany. I am led to believe that the mahogany would warm it up a bit, yet still have the highs that Evo's characteristically have.

If you go through with the mod, be sure and post back the results! I have several mahogany guitars with the PAF Pro/TZ combination, and while I really like that setup, I'm also looking for a little more variety, so I'm considering switching one of them to Evos.

Ok fella!
i'll post a Review here.. but look at the dimarzio's answer:
Steve's tone and attack come from his touch as much as from the pickups. The Evo bridge model is actually brighter-sounding than the Tone Zone, not fatter. However, the Evolution neck model (DP158F) is warmer-sounding than the PAF Pro, and you might find it more to your taste. Other neck position suggestions are the Breed neck model (DP165F) and the Air Norton (DP193F).

I think i'll let my Tone Zone in place and change the PAF! heheheh

After i'll test a Evo in Bridge..

Uma coisa que tu deve saber é que o TZ fica bem grave pra tocar bases e cleans ,tu não vai correr o risco de ter um pickup no neck mais alto que o pickup da ponte em se tratando de situações sem distorção. Mas pra tocar solos e melodias com o Zone, pode talvez ficar um pouco grave pro seu gosto.

Tu tem que pegar a guitarra e experimentar, só depois concluir se troca ou não.

Would that be the Queens English, or just plain US bastardised English?
