Looking for a pickup for a 540pii. I thought to call dimarzio and have them make me up a ibz f3 which would give the guitar an original look and tone. It will be more expensive though than just putting in a d activator ... Which would be my second choice.

I've never played an ibz f3, and before having a pickup made I was hoping to get opinions. Do these sound good? How would you compare to the d activator?

Get a Super 3. It's very nearly the same pup.
