Wich DiMarzio for Higher sounds on mahogany?
Hey hey !
I need your help please, I'm trying to pick the right DiMarzio ! (Or something else, Suhr maybe ?)
I would like to have the sound who talks in my head (Schyzophrenia? Who knows !)
I realy love my JVM410 with V30 (Marshall 1960AV) (Maybe a bit trebly for some fusion tunes and stuf but the guys of the forum realy helped me to improve that (I'm still trying !). I realy love this amp.
But it stills miss something..
Recently I bought an Ibanez RG3120 in Deep Red (Wonderfull !) Year : 2001.
The matter is the Ibanez is very Les Paulish (Mahogany/Flammed Mapple Top/ Rosewood board) and it has a Tone Zone who have 8 bass 9 mids et 5 trebl (I think).
So that's the matter, for a Paul Gilbert kind of sounds, very very tight and very high.. It's not very good. Micro who lacks of treble, woods who are warm and dark.. I think I prefear my V8 haha !
So the reason I'm here is : Do you think I can equilibrate all that stuff ? Or give an huge boost to the highs ? (treble? Sorry i'm Frensh I don't know how to say it !) But not harsh highs, smooths like Gilbert's ones.
Or It's better to re sell my guitar and buy anotherone with brighter woods ?
It hurts me because I realy love this guitar, I'm searching one since a year. The colour and finition are realy awesome and the confort is just perfect for me.. But the sound is definitely too dark and too "bassy" (low) for my. I love highs and mids !
Wich Di Marzio would be better for me on the bridge? Maybe a DiMarzio close to the V8 but without his defaults..
A little video to guid you. I love the sound when he starts jaming over his bluesy rythmic, very opened sound and high (maybe not enough high for me haha !). "Opened" I hope you understand my poor english haha.
This kind of sounds + the JVM original grain would sound pretty awesome I think (and hope).
If I take a micro like Super 2 with 4 in bass and 8 in trebl, It will sound like an old radio with no bass? :/ I'm a little afraid of that.
Air Classic ? Evo 2 ? Evo ? Paf Pro? Transition ? Super Distorsion ? Super 2 ? So many pick ups ..
Thank you very much and sorry for my english !
