I'm replacing my neck pickup and i need to know which would be better, a DiMarzio PAF Pro or DiMarzio Breed. I play a lot of instrumental and metal, but i'm not looking for a metal sound in the neck pickup. for the neck i'm looking for a tone like Santana and Satriani. i want a very expressive pickup, great tone, good sounding all around, not too muddy.
Out of those two, the PAF pro. The breed will give you a slightly harsher tone, not as smooth as the PAF. But if you are looking for a satch tone, definately consider a PAF Joe.

My Build IT'S DONE!
ok, but what about the FRED, is it better or worse for a creative/expressive sound than the PAF Pro?
