Could someone tell me the tonal characteristics of indian cedro. Thats what my friends jackson is made out of and im trying to help him find a replacement pickup. I've played on the guitar and it seemed to be lacking in output and highs. I was thinking about putting a Dimarzio evolution in it.
Ceder wood is a subspecies of mahogany

I also have to do that. Cottaging this weekend
If it's similar to Mahogany then I would avoid the Evolution. I had an Evo set in a mahogany bodied guitar and I didn't like the tone much at all. But that may just be me.

i've heard it was a lot like mahogany too. Im still confused with what pickup to put in it because emg hz isnt cutting it. He mainly plays metalcore to hard rock an has a 6505 112.
Try a Seymour Duncan Distortion (SH-6/TB-6), it's a very good pickup in mahogany.

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.
