TZ & JB question

I am considering putting a "JB" in the bridge position and a Tone Zone in the neck. Will they balance out?

I want to put them in a Godin LGT, which has a maple body and mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard.

fire away!

I don't think so.

The TZ has more balls from what my ears can tell. Try the Air Zone Or Air Norton

actuually the JB in the neck and a TZ in the bridge works great! but the other way round? i dont recomend it.
the air zone would work in the neck wit a JB in the bridge

TZ would be awful bassy in the neck. JB in the neck is a bit strong, but you could lower that to good effect. But unless you already own both, I like the JB/Air Zone idea. Or TZ/air zone. Or JB/'59. Or a PAF pro in the neck.

Yeah, I can make a decision... ;-)

Well, I own both and have an Air Norton lying around. Had the TZ in the bridge position of an EPI LP but wasn't too keen on it, but I figure it would sound nice in the neck. I like a bassy neck pick up anyway. I think I might go the JB and Air Norton route. I've done that before ans was happy with the results.
I was curious about this combination, so if anyone has tried it or has any other ideas. I would get a '59 or Jazz, but money is tight [tuition soon, lol].

I don't imagine this helps, but I just pulled a JB out of an old N2 because I didn't like it at all. That's a matter of taste, of course, but I replaced both pickups with a set of Bill Lawrences. The midrange is a bit harsh at times, but it's taken my tone to a higher level.

Come to think of it, that was pretty useless. Carry on.
