i bought an ibanez rg350dx with a seymour duncan dimebucker in the neck, a dimarzio fast track 2 in the middle, and a dimarzio evolution in the bridge.

Im not really digging the setup. What would be some good pickups for playing stuff like trivium, metallica, and black label society?

maybe you should stop playing that crap and you wont have a problem.


maybe you should get a life you stupid noob and maybe when you can afford a decent guitar you can talk you cheap ass

chill man. and its the dimebucker thats killing your sound. pretty much all of those bands use EMGs for recording. but i wouldnt reccomend them seeing as your guitar is basswood. i suggest you get another EVO for the bridge or something...
#5
well see i presume your wanting to play the heavier riffs in those bands, and wit hthe rg you cant really do that
its more for shred

i would say keep the evo in the bridge and fit it out with the evo or evo 2 i nthe neck and the single coil oone in there aswell. which will give you a high response solo guitar

apart from that you'll ahve to buy a mahogony guitar really

seeing how you are having sound problems that your not really "digging" and a shitty guitar, im guessing your amp isnt that good...

id suggest saving money and buy a good amp, or a good guitar...just my advice...

and calling someone a noob on guitar forums is kinda weird...this isnt world of warcraft

i have had 3 guitars made out of mahogany, and 2 made out of basswood. mahogany is good for metal, for it gives a warm, thick tone. basswood is not good for metal, the main reason being that it gives no tone at all. go and play a real les paul, and you will see wahat im talking about.

im getting another evo for the neck now that i have decided, but don't know what single coil would work well with two evos

i dont even have that guitar with me. I left it at home when i came to college not enough room...but anyways..

If your just trying to spice up one of your older guitars thats cool, but in your original post it sounded like it was your best guitar...and after hearing the word 'noob' i just figuired your some kid looking for attention.

But nvm, i was wrong about it being your only guitar. If you wanna spice it up go for it. And i support evo's, haha, but if you want a single coil im guessing you want something good with cleans, and let your buckers do the dirty. I have experience with the SCN Samarium's if want something with a bite to it. Or maybe a DiMarzio YJM Guitar Pickup, if you want something clean and bluesy. Also price range and style of music in wut u want a single pup would be a good info

To be honest, I'd say it's your amp that's killing you. The Marshall MG series are not good amplifiers IMO. I think you should save up for a new tube amp or something, sell your MG and boost your funds.
#22
for the single coil i would say a good bluesy tone that can also handle distortion for playing songs like nothing else matters, i like that kirk hammet sound, but im definately keeping my evo in the bridge and getting another one for the neck.

In terms of tone, it's rather neutral. The neat thing about using basswood on those Ibanez guitars is that the player can make the most of their pickups. The pickups characteristics really shine in the basswood since the basswood is really neutral.
