Can someone tell me what to replace a Ibanez RG3EXQM1 's humbuckers with? I'm thinking of Seymour Duncan or Dimarzio (Some evolution)
I play rock, classic rock, metal, jazz, and some blues.

Also could someone perhaps post a color chart for the dimarzio humbuckers.

I don't know about Dimarzio's but Seymour Duncans are great for Jazz Blues and Classic Rock. For metal you should probably look into EMG's.

Depends on the model, but some Dimarzio vinatge voiced pickups should do the trick. I just dont know how good a metal tone would be compared to a blues tone... one category will HAVE to suffer a bit...

For the first part of your question - what amp do you have.

For the second - is it really that hard to look on Dimarzio's website?

1. I currently have a Frontman 15G but will probably be getting a 30W Crate tube amp soon.
2. I looked but I'd like to see the actual pickups in color, not just some colors.

Do you honestly think somebody round here is holding out on you, jealously guarding their treasured collection of picture with examples of every clolour of Dimarzio?

Hey...maybe there's a book, Larry Dimarzio is a photographer after all. If there isn't he should make one, he could call it "The Spectrum of Sound" or something cool like that...maybe "The Rainbow of Tone"

Get a better amp first, then maybe worry about pickups...no point doing it now.

Alright, but the main point was to ask Duncan or Seymour for when I DO change them. I will be getting a new amp when I get a new guitar (Christmas) and I don't want to have to worry about it then. I just wanna play for a while, earn the money, buy.

Well, going by your original post you'll probably want something like a pair of Dimarzo Breeds or maybe a Duncan Custom Custom/59 set.

Alright, I'll look into that. I was kinda thinking the Hot rodded humbucker set, with JB and Jazz (by Duncan)
#14
the breeds are good, maybe that and a paf pro in the neck. as long as your amp can bring the thunder, its not bad to go a little lower output.

The JB would probably be too hot for what you want to play, and is on the thinner side of the tonal spectrum.

The decision between the '59 and the Jazz is pretty much a choice whether you like more warmth or more clarity.

What's the difference between warmth and clarity? Also I like warm, tube-sounding distortion.
#17
Then go for the '59, though since they are pretty similar pickups, you could probably do either.

The '59 gives you that vintage PAF tone.

Warmth = More mids/lower mids

Clarity = More treble
