New Pickups, but which ones?
Good Morning, or Day or Night everyone.
Not too long ago, I bought a new guitar, and I really like it, so much so, that, in due time, I will probably review the guitar and post some pictures as well.
The only thing I am not too happy with are the pickups.
It came with an Ibanez INF3 at the neck (27 frets btw) and a "unknown model" at the bridge position.
Since the guitar itself was pretty cheap, I decided to go the extra mile and spring for a set of new pickups.
Now, I have narrowed it down to:
1. Either he Joe Satriani set (Mo'Joe + PAF Joe)
2. A Steve Vai wannabe-set (Evo Bridge /EVO2 Bridge + Evo Neck)
The only question I have is, if the Evos sound good in single-coil mode and if using them in a dual humbucker configuration is worth it.
I mainly play Rock, Blues-Rock, Hard-Rock and some Vaiish-Hendrixii-Satchi-Mess.
I would like the pick-ups to do harmonics and pinch-harmonics extremely well and to deliver a nice rhythm sound, ala Chickenfoot.
Suggestions are welcome.
