well today i traded my emg 81 (which i disliked and hate, they came on the guitar already) for a dimarzio breed. i want to put it in the neck but does anybody here know how it will sound? i mostly play thrash,shred, jazz, rock, and classical, so i was wondering if it would do good or not.

help me out lol

It's a very thick yet melodic tone. Imo, it beats those thin sounding solos that we hear more often than we think.

It's one of Steve Vai's signature pickups, so yes
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

there`s sound sample on the dimarzio website.

http://www.dimarzio.com/site/#/players/ ......ans select steve vai or goto the medium powered section (for the neck) or high powered for the bridge....

is it definatly a breed neck (dp165) or a breed bridge (dp166) , they`re are differences between the 2.

First off, is it actually a neck model? Because the neck and bridge models are wound differently, they aren't the same pickup, they're designed to complement each other. A bridge model will most likely be too powerful and too bassy to use in the neck position.

The amp test clips on my profile were recorded with an Ibanez Iceman with Breeds in neck and bridge...the clean clips probably give you the best idea of the tonal characteristics of the pickup.

I can't sweep, therefore you still won't know what that sounds like
Actually called Mark!

Good call on the trade....a good passive PU will always sound and what I call "feel" better than an active PU.
