cut the bass set the treble to bout 8.5 and the mid to 7.to really get the PG sound you need to get a dimarzio tonezone in the bridge though

awesome. thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

would a dimarzio tonezone work with my alder guitar? i think it has rosewood fretboard...if it matters....???? and i heard you can't use passive with active

someone elaborate plz. thanks!
#4
yes they would work beautifully with plenty of top end. i dunno bout using actives with passives though but if you want ot change the neck pup as well i suggest a dimarzio PAF pro or a superdistortion

You cant use active with passive without extensive modding. You'd have to replace both pickups.

kk

so a couple more questions then

if i do replace both, is it possible to ebay the 81 and 85? will i get anything? is it possible to salvage them to even sell??

if i do go ahead and make this change

if i one day decide i want H-S-H

is it possible to make the bodywork to put the third in the middle after the 2 have been in?

would there be room?
would the wires still.....work....understand what im saying....

pickup suggestions for bridge neck single coil mid? lol looks like i may go ahead and buy a pgm301

so you are all sayin i can't get his sound by gettin a pedal or changing amp, it's all abt pickups? i wont be able to achieve the tone i want with the 81 n 85? will the dimarzio's still have as much...distortion??? attack...ya know?
#7
yes to all

neck pup dimarzio PAF pro or a superdistortion
middle pup lace sensor
a laney will make a huge difference more than the pups probably
they have more dynamics than emgs but less output

new amp, and new pickups.
It's pretty close to impossible to get VH tones with EMGs.
Gear:
Ibanez RG550 20th RFR
Traynor YCV50
Fender FMT HH Tele
Mesa Boogie 2ch Triple Rectifier
2 1x12 custom Theile cabs
ISP Decimator
Krank Kranshaft
Boss BF-2 Flanger
BBE Sonic Maximizer

cool stuff. thanks,.


so you suggest dimarzio's all the way
maybe a new laney

awesome. what about that whole... can i craft the space for that single pup in the body???
will it eff up the floyd rose or anything i need to know?

the pickup selector is only 3 way. would i have to redo that as well??
will all three of those pickups (or 4 i dont remember how many u offered) work with alder?

if i need to change the pup selector to like 5 way...will that take an advanced knowledge of what i'm doing or can m mechanical engineer father and i do it

The pickups are pretty moot - Gilbert's used various pickups. The amp is the problem here, you'll never get close to Gilbert tones with a little vox.

And stop bumping.
Actually called Mark!
