Replacement PINK pickups for RG1XXV (Gravity Storm...?)
I'm thinking of replacing the stock IBZ pickups in my RG1XXV for pink ones, so they look cool. Oh, and sound better. I shouldn't need to describe this too much, other than it is a Premium Ibanez which is typical in terms of being an RG and with a ZR trem.
In terms of sound, I really like my JEM7V which is loaded with Evolutions. For this guitar, I want the same sort of cutting rock sound, basically. I have other guitars with warmer humbuckers etc, so happy for this guitar to sound JEM-like.
Right now, the IBZ pickups don't sound as 'cutting' as the Evos. Warmer. Bassier. I want them to penetrate a bit more.
Of course, I could put Evos in there, but want to hear other options too.
In terms of guitarists, apart from Vai (obviously), I think Petrucci is pretty neat too!
