I should be getting a new guitar soonish (ibanez s470) and i was wondering which DiMarzio pickups to put in it.

I was looking at an Evo set, but i've also heard good things about the Tone Zone and PAF Pro. Im not exactly sure what the difference is and what would fit me the best. I'm looking for a versatile pickup that's good for metal and other softer stuff. basically anything really.

I was also wondering which single coil i should stick in it as well. I wanted a nice stratocaster sound out of that middle pickup but im guessing the output wont match the humbuckers.

Sorry for asking so much....

thanks

I feel I should point out that a new amp will affect your tone a lot more than a set of new pickups will.

i know that, but im probably not going to change my amp for a while yet (i use it for my keyboards too)

Fair enough, but I don't think it would be worth changing your pickups until you do. The difference probably won't be enough to justify it. The stock pickups on the S470 should be fine

Tone Zone - Blue Velvet - Air Norton comes stock in high end Ibanezeseses. Give Dimarzio a call and they will be able to help you with a single coil.

that will be ages away lol. i will be using different amps for gigging etc, but i wont buy a new one for a long time (ill be saving up for a marshall head + cab) which will cost about 3 - 4 grand or so here in Australia.
