mike777 I prefer the PAF PRos overall but the clean sound on a direct-mounted Breed (especially in the neck position) is IMO incredible.

Lonely Raven IMHO the single coil has very weak output.

I think the Breeds are a bit harsher (metal?) on clean, and the
PAF Pro is just lucious.

I think there are other pickups out there that sound better then a PAF Pro
for clean tracks...but they are all very *specific* in their tonality. I think
the PAF Pro has great variability with a twist of the Tone Knob, Wah, or
light effects/EQ. That's something that can kill the tone of too many other

Keep in mind, I'm not talking smack on the Breeds. They are, IMHO just
not as fun clean.

ibanez otaku Hmmm. Most Jems I've had sound very good in the 2 and 4 positions just as they are, with the stock pups. Crisp and dry in bridge-mid and roomy/hollow in neck-mid (very 'Sisters' to my ears). The PAFs anyway. And that's with the mid pup screwed pretty far down to clear my picking. I'll admit that, now I think about it, the 7DBK is so metal I don't think I've ever played the Breeds clean! The Evos I find a bit too brash for many applications too, so I'd probably go for PAFs if recording a clean track. (Though recently I did exactly that and after plugging in different Jems in different pup combos for two hours just bit the bullet and used a Strat Don't worry, it was just the rhythm track.)

they all sound good if you replace the middle pickup with a higher-output pickup & split the coils.
