Recommend me some Pickups

My gear as of now is:

Ibanez RG1570 (HSH)

Morley Bad Horsie Wah
Big Muff Pi
DS-1
Digitech Whammy

Sovtek Mig60 All tube head
Avatar Cab with celestion vintage 30s

I've been looking at the Dimarzio Evolutions with a HS-2 , or maybe with Steve's special. Or EMG active pickups.

I'm really trying to get a rock 'n roll lead guitar tone(Van Halen) out of this, and if possible a bluesy tone as well.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Recommend me some Pickups

Paf Pro's would be a great choice or the Fred and Paf Joe combo. Both very rock and roll and very bluesy pickups.

I read a here lots of times that what gets you closer to newer Van Halen sound would be a Tone Zone / Air Norton combo...


good luck!

Re: Recommend me some Pickups

I'm pretty set on getting the Evo's right now, probably along with the HS-2 for the middle, anyone have anything to say about Steve's Special? Or a different middle pickup?

Can you do rhythm playing on the special?
