Greetings. I currently have an Ibanez RGT42 DX guitar and Marshall TSL601 amp. My guitar is equipped with ibanez INF1 and INF2 pickups which arn't very good. Therefor i'm looking for new pickups. I'm still looking for teh style, im really into, but at the moment, i'm learning all the techniques. At the moment i play jimi Hendrix (i have humbuckers, i know), Metallica, Iron Maiden, ZZtop, RHCP and black sabbath and deep purple. Therefor i need something more metal type pickups, but something quite versatile, because i want to play some clean parts too. DO you have any recommendations for me?
how much do you wanna spend? also where are you located?
Well, money is really not a problem, i quess somewhere about 350-380 $. I'm located in Europe, in Estonia. The problem here is that, we don't have a wide selection at the music instrument stores, but we have a service from where we can order almost everything regarding instruments. From tone knobs to pianos.
Good choice, although I havent installed mine yet
So, those pickups are a perfect match for my needs, right?
probably but i would get another persons opinion as well
Will the EMG 81/85 make the clean sounds kind of muddy or not that good?
it wont be that great the 60 is from what ive heard the pickup you want for cleans
what about EMG 81/60 set?
yeh but i dont know how good it would do Jimi Hendrix, RHCP
BTW, is ibanez INF1 and 2 50 or 52mm wide. If i have tremolo, then it should be 52 mm, right?
yeh if you have a tremolo it should be 52mm or F-Spaced
So, are the warthog and condor the way to go, or would the DiMarzio Evolution be better?
