Well I'm really starting to dislike the tone I get when using the bridge pup on my Ibanez. It's not my amp or anything, since I get perfectly good tone from my LP. So I thought maybe a pickup change could be a solution... Will it be a great difference if I choose to change? And I know people generally seem to dislike EMGs on here, but what I really need is some pickups for some good old high-gain metal, so would EMGs be a good choice for that?
Well, what amp do you have, just to add perspective.
Peavey 5150, so I can't get good cleans anyway
I recommend DiMarzios!
A nice pair of high-output DiMarzios would work well. I've heard that fitting EMGs and a battery into S-series guitars is usually a pain in the ass anyway.
dimarzio's! John Petrucci uses them. Steve's Special is the name of the pup I think.
