    Hello, Am trying to narrow down a choice of bridge pickup and noticed the Dimarzio specs on the Breed and Norton are almost identical, with the Breed having more pronounced mids and low. I'm a little concerned the Norton may may sound a bit too PAF'ish. (I had a PAF Pro in a guitar long ago...

    I've been wondering about this for a while. I know Vai uses them, but I've really never had the opportunity to listen to him for long. Anyone care to enlighten me?
