Hey guys,

Well, I recently got my first Ibanez guitar (S570DXQM), and I love everything about it....except the pickups. I always hear people swearing by the evolution neck and bridge combo for leads, and I want this guitar to be almost dedicated lead...

Anyway, I saw that there are two different DiMarzio evolution bridge pickups...the Evolution and the Evo 2. Can anyone tell me how the two are different? I'm trying to get a feel for which one would better suit what I'm trying to do.

Also, I'm not really looking for recommendations...so even if you disagree with my Evo+Evo combo, please keep it to yourself...and I mean that in the most respectful way possible!

Thanks in advance,

-Sean

Hey Sean The EVO 2 is exactly the same as the EVO one except the EVO two has less output than one. This was primarily designed for live use so there would be less gain..tonality wise it's abit quieter too giving more headroom and room for dynamics. The Evo one is loud punchy and awesome too, i highly recommend it but if you want something with alittle less gain and output but same tonal qualities i'd recommend the evo 2.

EVO2 has slightly less output than EVO. People also say the EVO 2 sounds nicer. Never tried it though

I'd go with the regular Evo's....I had them and they sounded great. Very high output for passives. I wish I still had that guitar.

You will get a Steve Vai tone with these PU's.

Also, I would highly reccomened installing a push/pull at the same time to split them if you want. They sound great as a single coil as well.

Sorry to bump my own thread, but do you guys think that a True Velvet Middle pickup would compliment the Evo pickups?
