Have any of you had experience with the paf pros? i'm considering swapping out the stock ibanez pup for one of them just in the neck position. it's in my Satriani signature guitar (js20s) I like playing hard and fast and want something that is clear with speed. Plus i play alot of evh/gnr kind of tunes so i don't want an active as i still want the passive sound. are these pups hot enough for easy tapping/harmonics?
cheers

they're not that hot but they're very clear

in the neck, it shouldn't be a problem, normally you use a lower output pickup there anyway.

what's the rest of your gear?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Like Dave said not high output but they are warm and clear. Gilbert used them for a while on his Ibanez PG model RG's I put one in a dean Vedetta with a Tone zone and works nicely for shred. you should be fine.

hmmm maybe the bridge is where it would belong better? i'll be running it through a jcm800 2203 or an ibanez tsa15h head. my gat currently has the stock Ibanez axis pickups, would the paf's be very noticably different?

they're pretty low output in the bridge position.

tone zone can be pretty dark... it's a nice lead pickup, though. up to you, really.
