RG550 Reissue Pickup Choice
I should be getting my Desert Yellow RG550 in a few days, and I was thinking of changing out the pickups for some that would more match my tastes.
I was thinking of Evolution Bridge, HS-2 in Middle, and a Evolution Neck
(Pink, Green, Pink)
The problem I have is with F-Spacing. Which pickups would need to be F-Spaced, or non at all? (Original Edge Trem).
If you have any suggestions for other pickups that would better suit lead playing on a Basswood guitar, I'm all for it!
I was also thinking of an Air Norton instead of Evo Neck, but I really love Evo Necks so I'm not sure...
Tones wanted: Cooler high gain sound with very smooth trem picking tone (John Petrucci style), and a more Yngwieish than Laiho sweeping tone, (more blended notes than singular).
I have an Evo Neck in my SG, but I dont know about how one would sound in a Basswood guitar, so I'll try out a Jem again tonight at guitar center just to recall...The new Jems ARE Basswood, correct?
