Re: Evo v's Evo 2?
to add to fyrie's awesome write-up, i find that the Evo is a great pickup on the right guitar. on a guitar with a naturally dark timber, it works incredibly well (i.e. a neck through body instrument with a rosewood board, or even a bolt-on with a mahogany body) but other people's ears may differ. IMHO it works very well to goose the input of an amp and to balance out a very warm/dark instrument with heaps of scream and punch. the evo 2 is MUCH sweeter, and to my ears a bit more delicate sounding. there are more natural overtones and more "bloom" to sustained notes. the evo 2 DOES clean up more nicely than the evo, but i find i get a lot of use out of the evo in single coil or parallel wiring. kinda gives you a roid-raging tele tone through the right amp and reduces very nicely to a bright, sparkly clean with the volume rolled back. then again, i spend entire paychecks on cable and smell my strings before i put them on. haha. hope that helped.
