HSH pickup recommendation for Ibanez SV5470A
I have a stock Ibanez SV5470A
S shape, mahogany body, rosewood board, non locking trem, 5 way switch with a push pull knob for coil splitting.
I find the stock Ibanez True Duo Blast pickups are a bit bland and want to swap them out to something more suited for my taste.
I play hard rock and modern metal but prefer medium output to retain clarity. I don't play with too much gain in order to keep percussive rhythms. Influences from Slash, to Kiko Loureiro, Keith Merrow / Wes Hauch, etc...
I play through Fractal stuff, as well as tube amps (Friedman, Marshall, 6505 etc)
I am considering:
- Tone Zone / True Velvet / Air Norton combo, but read on a forum that they might not be great on a mahogany guitar. Is that true?
- Crunch Lab / Liquifire (not sure what single coil to add)
- JB / Jazz, or Nazgul / Sentient, or Jupiter set (not sure what single coil to add).
- Fluence Keith Merrrow set (but thats $$$ after adding their single coil)
Any thoughts or other recommendations? Ideally something that splits coils nicely for added versatility.
