What is your music style?

While you're at it, how about some pics too? RG770DXs are awesome guitars.

Re: Pickups for RG 770 DX

I have a Pod XT that I use trough the PA, I bought it used and the pickups aren't the originals, I just want a good combo of pickups to have a powerful rock n roll sound , I also have a strat , a tele , a rg 3120 tw , an ibanez sz 520 with paf pro in neck and tone zone in bridge, and a yamaha nylon electroacoustic, so I would like my 770 to be have another sound different that those I already have.
Thanx in advance!!
I'll post pics later

Re: Pickups for RG 770 DX

I have a Air Norton / Chopper / Super 3 combo in my RG550, but I'm thinking of changing to PAF Pro / Chopper / Super 2 instead...
