up to you, look around, research a little, find some sound samples and make your own mind.

we could suggest you a pickup, that doesnt mean that it is what YOU want.

its your own choice, we can help you, but its what you like. not what we like.

To improve the harmonics, simply improve your technique. I've heard good players get great harmonics out of any guitar.

Now you may want to improve the sound, but technique is the key in this situation.

DIMARZIO! just Dimarzio DIMARZIO!

don't be listening to stuff like this TS. Both brands are good. Nobody even knows what you want, what guitar and amp you use, what pickup you have currently, style of playing..... All we have is 'improved harmonics.' Better pickups usually improve harmonics. Same with amp. And like someone said, good technique may improve harmonics a bit. You also have to have the fingers. Some people have the 'dirty fingers' or maybe like you, they make the tone sound rounded.

Couldn't agree more. I play an almost 20-year old Washburn with stock pickups that gets excellent harmonics, both natural and artificial.
In a lot of cases it's 'how you play' not 'what you play'.

Apparently (please note the liberal use of the word "apparently") DiMarzio D-Activators are good for pinch harmonics.

I think he meant harmonics as in tone, not pinch harmonics. And there are tons of better pickups for pinch harmonics. D Activator isn't a hot pickup. Pickups like JB and EMG 81 are much hotter and better for pinch harmonics.

I think he did mean pinch judging by the vai darrell username assuming darrell = dime. Though it could just be his name

stupid thread is stupid.

no specific models suggested by TS.
not defined whether SC or HB.
which brand is better? for WHAT?

all we're gonna get out of this is a lot of bickering and nonsense that won't be worth the powder to blow it up. this thread needs to die.
