what do you guys think of the steve's special pickup by dimarzio? any good as a bluesey neck pickup for funky clean rhythym lines in a funk metal guitar?
Not really, no...wouldn't stick it in the neck for anything. Try the Humbucker From Hell if you want the emphasis on clean, if you don't want it that clean maybe the Paf Joe.
its not really that bluesy imo... its more mellow..
It's one of my favourite bridge pickups, very verstile... but for neck position, just nope ^^'
