    I'm just wondering what Dimarzio pups you guys have in your strats, both humbuckers and singles, and how do you like them?

    I have an alder strat with an old Ibanez humbucker in the bridge that I took off a Roadstar 550 back in 1987. Don't ask why. My neck pickup is a Lace Sensor Blue. I'm looking for more definition in the bridge and a little more bite in the neck and brightness. I'm looking to do a HH set up with...

    I know many like these in the neck but anyone like the pro in the bridge spot of a RG? I was told that they are great for a very tight,balanced, lower output paf tone and have great pinch harmonics? i like the tone of "satch boogie" and that is all pros on there remind me of the "hot for...

    I was at my local guitar store today and as I walked in I noticed one of the salesman playing what looked like the EVH Frankenstein by Fender. I stopped dead in my tracks and went on to ask him if indeed it was the 20,000 dollar EVH model. He said nope, its the 25,000 EVH model. We laughed then...

    ...what would it be? What would it look like? Hardware? Colours? Photoshops are a must in this thread. Cheers.

    Bought these for a basswood guitar, now they may go in alder superstrat. Both are dark enough, they should sound good in the brighter alder I believe. Anyone with experiance with these in alder?
  17. Pickups & wiring
    I repost my subject because i was wrong, the neck is rosewood but the body will be alder... Bridge : tonezone ? Airzone ? breed or norton ? Middle : fs1 ? blue velvet ? red velvet ? Neck : air norton ? Paf pro ? paf joe ? Thanks

    Ok, this probably has been asked many times, but tried doing a search that didn't come up with much. What do people really think of Breeds? I like the sound of Evos and TN/AN. The breeds could be another option.

    Now i know this has probably been said before but are these guitars really worth what they're charging for them?! As far as i can tell, the only thing different to it apart from being a strat with a humbucker and locking trem, is the connection to EVH and the colour sceme. Really, am i missing...

    This may be a bit blasphemous coming from a guy who tells anyone and everyone who asks that he's strictly Ibanez, but I think I have have found something better... Begin rant: So I'm at my local guitar shop today and the owner points out his newest store arrival: A brand new Paul Reed Smith...
