Neck Pickup help

I bought a DiMarzio Super 3 for the Bridge Position in my S520EX and I was wondering what pickup in DiMarzio's line would Complement the high output of the Super 3.

Re: Neck Pickup help

How about a Super 2?? A Paf Pro actually works very well and so does the air norton.

Re: Neck Pickup help

PAF Pro is imho the best humbucker neck tone out there. Sweet, soulful, and full, but still great for everything else, very versatile.

Re: Neck Pickup help

okay i've bought the Super 2 and it's coming in about three weeks from now.

Now i have another question about what pickups i should get for my RG1570 Middle pickup position.

The bridge and neck pickups have been ordered and are the Dimarzio D-sonic(black) and PAF Joe(Red)

Re: Neck Pickup help

EVO neck or Paf pro should work fine, even humbucker from hell works fine, don't need that much power in the neck position though.
