Quarter Pounders with Evolution bridge or..?
Ok, the guitar in question is '93. Ibanez RG470, so it has Evolutions, neck and bridge with DiMarzio True Velvet RWRP in the middle.
The more I think about it, considering some experience, the neck coil split just won't cut it. What I aim for is HSS configuration with neck and middle singles, tone similar to Andy Timons', (DiMarzio Cruisers), maybe hotter, considering the Evolution bridge. I was thinking DiM Fast Track 1, maybe Fast Track 2 for hum cancelling solution than I thoght why not Quarter Pound Flat for neck and another QP RWRP in the middle?
Too noisy, any thoughts? Thing is, I'm really into stuff like Andy Tmmons' ''Cry for you'' type of instrumentals. So, bluesy...with enough grit.
The first idea was splitting neck Evolution to get single coil neck sound - often used with the middle RWRP, for some clean and slightly overdriven sounds, plus I kind of like the full humbucker in the neck, distorted only, but I rarely use it.
Than I thought of some DiMarzio hum cancelling singles and of Quarter Pounders in the end, for some ''true single coil sound''. I know they are beefy, on the dark side (using 500K volume pot should lighten them up). They should be loud enough...
Now what would be the best solution, any opinions?
