Feedback on EVO Pickups

I went to guitar center sunday(hour drive from here, its like a holliday for me to go to guitar center) and I played more or less everything there except a JS. I played a JEM7VWH for the first time, and i must say, Nothing was as good as my strat i brought with me, but the JEM was 2nd in line, even compaired to the EB/MM JPM(crappy beat up thing though). I was playing threw a Mesa Boogie Rect-o-verb(very impressed, still going to get a Dr Z Maz 1 but with a JEM i noticed feedback was easy to get, at low volumes, and pretty close to the amp(3 feet maybe?). If I put a EVO in the bridge of my Strat, would I get the same feedback? I really liked it b/c it was easly controled, and the EVO sounded great as a punchy lead bridge pickup.

Hmmm, in my experience Boogies require a bit of tone-twiddling with Evos, because that combination often results in a bit of a 'mosquito trapped in a megaphone' effect . You shoulda tried it with a Bogner or Marshall or Soldano or something. Yum.

I don't see why it wouldn't.

The Jem7VWH has it's pickups mounted to the pickguard like the strat.
The only variance is body shape/mass, and possibly wood type.

Other than that, it should still feed back the same with the same settings. I guess the only real way to test it is to buy an evo. They're relatively cheap.

The Jem 7VWH is made of alder, like a Strat, pickup mounted, like a Strat, the major differences are the fretboard (ebony on the Jem, rosewood or maple on the Strat) and the fact that there's a little less mass in the body, due to it's "pointier" nature, and the grip, routing for the trem . . . but I think the trem's mass makes up for any lost in the wood.

I have an RG 520 QSTB (mahagany body) with both neck and bridge Evos, and even using my lousy little Fender Champion 110, gain set on 4 and the volume set on 1.5 or 2 the thing will feed-back like a "Champ".

Evos are LOUD, very high output, so quite a bit of signal is coming back at you, so you don't need a lot of volume to get some nice feedback.

Hell, I had the thing at work, hooked up to a Digitech RP200 that was plugged into a 2 watt portable radio, through the CD input, and it would feed back on demand using that thing! I sh!t you not! :-)

So, yeah, I'd bet the Evos would not only feed back like you want them to, but will also make your Strat sound like it's never sounded before.

Mic, obvious Evo lover. ;-)

Thh Evolutions are hot pups.YOu can put them in any guitar that you like if there is routing for a dual coil.THey are a bit hotter than what I like but they do sound good.As some of the guys said, they will sound like evos in your strat but your strat wont sound like the Jem or vice versa.Being that the evos have good midrange, they should work well in your strat.

I was just wondering if there was something in the wiring of a JEM that makes it feedback like it does. If I wanted to waste the vintage single coil tone in my strat, Id route it for HSH pups with EVOs but, I think ill just let my bridge be the hot pup for the heavyer stuff, and leave the singles alone...

Well, yeah, there is something in the wiring of the Jem 7VWH . . .

The Evolutions. ;-)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Nothing special about the wiring, two coils in series, turn off one and add the single.
They are just high output pups that make things like feedback a little easier, and pushing an amp harder with less gain (my fav) and harmonics tend to jump out easier and so on and so forth . . .
