pickup selection help: Dimarzio Evo2 and Breed combo?
I need help selecting new pickups for my ol' RG320dx guitar. (H-H)
I am looking for a combination of pickups that can accomodate a wide range of tones, from screaming highs, to clear (not muddy) lows, to warm sounding licks. My playing styles include progressive metal, instrumental rock, blues, jazz fusion, and funk. Most of the time I lean towards progressive metal and instrumental rock (a la Steve Vai and Guthrie Govan).
I was thinking about the Dimarzio Evo2 for the bridge position, and the Dimarzio Breed for the neck. I've heard that the original evo's were too hot and trebly. Ive also though about the Paf-pros, but I have heard that the Breed's had a little more gusto.
Let me know what you guys think; I am still open to other pickups as well.
