Is there a downside to mixing dimarzio and duncan pickups

thinking of swapping current pups for duncan patb1 and dimarzio liquifire. But dont know if that would be a bad idea

The only downside would be that you have a Dimarzio in your guitar.

Such a downside

It's not a problem man, rock on with whatever you got wired up in there. The Liquifire is a great pickup but plugged into the wrong amp it can sound muddy. Great for cleans.

I think the wiring colors are different, so that might be something to keep in mind.

That's funny, I was going to say the same thing about having a Duncan in your guitar.

haha. if i had to go with one or another i would go with duncan. I know the patb1 is going in my axe for bridge. i just dont have much experience with various neck pups. Something that can have a mellow clean and some lead that isnt to bassy or muddy. I just thought maybe volume levels wouldnt be equal with two different brands. Any suggestions on a different neck pup.

Duncan 59 and Jazz for neck pickups are always a fair choice.

There won't be any problem mixing and matching pickups. Just mind the wiring.



Also, brand loyalists ITT shitting bricks.

Be careful, your guitar may explodes heads of the brand etlists.

On another note, other than the wiring codes, no it will be fine. Dimarzio makes some nice pickups, as do SD. Everyone has a different flavor they are looking for.

well we all have our brands we stand by. I do like the 59/jazz combo but i like the patb1 a little bit more for bridge, and the jazz is in the air with the liquifire for neck but liquifire seems a little more suitable. The wiring of the different color wires wont be an issue.

im not sure what wood the guitar is made out of. I got it from a friend because of the ghost midi system installed on it. But it is a not too recent jackson.
