i guess you would probably know better than i (as someone who has used both fairly extensively) would, or dimarzio for that matter.
Thrash, like i said before i tend to prefer the evo for what i do, but it seems like the evo2 would be a better bet for you. if you need a pickup sweet enough for satch/vai/guitar instrumental stuff but will do the heavier stuff very well also i'd go evo2. in terms of output, it'll match up very well with the air norton i think, as the an isn't a very hot pickup, lower even (a little) in terms of output than the evo neck.
no i have always used evos, go read my stuff carefull i preach the evo, i love the evo
i had used evo2, and never used them again, had more than one in a guitar at one time, i have evo single coil on order iscv2 wich i just order all the parts, pots, switched everything, from dimarzio the entire evolution jem set
it has the br and neck evo f spaced humbuckers, and the f spaced single coil
before i sold most of my gutars, i i have in my jacksons and my bc rich and my carvin diff pickups, breeds super and duncons distorion also jb and jazz pickups, but after time went by i put evos in almost all my br. positions, and has either d distortion or jazz or jb in the neck
now i like the x2n in br and d distortion in the necks of my guitars
i have a rg350dx, i am going to scalop the frets entirely, wire it up for a evo jem, shave the body heel and place metal collers in it, reshape the bottom of the neck, and plane down the frets pretty flat
enough info for you?? oh yeah its a 2000 rg350dx
right now eveything is done, but the scaloping and the pups come in soon, the onlky think not stock is the 1 meg volume and a 500k tone instead of the standard 500k volume and 250 tone
so yes i love evos, and i have tried evo2, but never a fan of them at all
and i could tell the dynamics and responce is not the same
altho they are not the same kind of pickups, they are different
