Fast Track 2 as middle pickup

Hey guys,
Have any of you compared the power output of a Fast Track 2 with the V7/8 series of pickups? Is it a big volume difference?

I just bought the Fasttrack 2 from Vaijem777, and I'm planning for it to be in the middle position of my RG.

Also, how does one connect a 4-wire pup to the standard RG switch to get parallel neck-mid and bridge-mid (full on humbuckers) on positions 2 and 4 (or 4 and 2, as the case may be)?

Thanks

Not really, if there is any then I didn’t hear the diff… I have this pickup in the mid position of my RG 560, it gives that inherent ‘smooth’ dimarzio tone under high gain.

Thanks Germx, my only worry now is the wiring.

the wiring is easy.

I have a Virtual2 in the middle position of my Jem. I don't remember the exact colors, but you just end up not connection a couple of them.

Call DiMarzio - their support is fantastic and you'll have your answer within seconds. I recommend calling them whie you have the guitar open.

oh...wait a minute...you bought the pickup from chris? never mind - it probably doesn't work anyway
I'm kidding of course.

PS Any middle pickup will sound better than a stock Ibanez single coil...gotta get you some good humbuckers next

Thanks Kennydoe

I'm thinking of Breeds, or SD/S2. Actually already ordered but decided that for my talent level probably V7/8 are still okay, so cancelled anyway.
