So ive picked out 2 pick ups, a dimarzio evolution in the bridge and an dimarzio air norton in the neck. i used the pickup finder on their site, and i liked the sound of the 2 and what i read about them seemed to fit my style. So would these to pickups make a good combo on a guitar?

What's your style?

What's your amp?

What's your guitar?

if you're playing gigs, i'd say get a new amp - something that sounds a little better, then buy a new guitar. your pickups are going to change your tone slightly, but not a whole ton. if you're really looking for a tonal change, i'd say save up and upgrade your amp and guitar instead.


oh, i should add, EVOs are AWESOME.

Yes. That's an excellent combination. Also consider a X2N in the place of the Evolution. For strictly metal, you really can't do better. In my opinion, that is.

Changing your pickups can make a decent guitar through a semi-decent amp sound pretty good. But, you'll want to get a new amp eventually..new pickups go only so far. You'll definitely notice the tonal difference after playing a single note, though. DiMarzios are the shiz.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

I'd suggest getting a new amp first.

^+100. Pickups won't do that much for your tone with that amp, and I'd seriously question the advisability of putting $140 of pickups in a $180 guitar.
