hey i saw that Gibson Tony Iommi pickup and heard really great things about it and that it had very high ouptput, also i heard about the 500T and the reviews said that one was great too for about 40-50$ less. and i saw the EVH Humbucker (not signed) for the same price as the tony Iommi. but i also saw the DiMarzio EVO (steve vai) and the single conductor PAF. if i got the dimarzios id get both of them cuz they are fairly cheap. i was wondering which ones to get, i would only get 1 tony iommi, 1 evh, 1 500T (and sumthin else like a dimarzio FRED) and both of the Dimarzios.

New amp first, a new pick up will not improve your tone in the way you want it to, you need a new amp first.

unless they're original PAFs, pat numbers, t-tops, or '80s Shaw PAF reissues, just go ahead and pass on all Gibson humbuckers.

the 500t is buzzy and gritty. Not a very clean pickup. And its kinda meh in power.

Well, what's your budget?

You know, pickups are only there to make good tones better, they won't make bad tones transform into amazing ones.

the bridge evo is a highoutput pup great for harmonics and squealing and i love it and crystal clear the other dimarzio`s are medium output including the neck evo and all have great clarity head over to www.dimarzio.com select your pup and theres some audio samples and wiring diagrams.
theres also a pup chooser where you specify the materials of your guitar and your style of music and it suggests a pup.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
