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

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.)|

Jem clean tones
What are the differences (in your opinion) between the clean tones in the PAF PRO, Evolution, and the Breed Jems?
