im getting the dimarzio d activators for bridge and neck but i wanted to know if they will sound good with my guitar which has a basswood body and rosewood fingerboard. will they. im looking for a nice clean and brutal metal tone
If your going for Dimarzio's, I would recommend Breed (neck) and Evolution (bridge). Killer tone. Amazing sustain. Good clean, but great distortion. Also, the amp your using determines your clean, more so than the axe/pickups.
Yes, they are great for cleans. I'm not to well versed on d activators, but I assume they would have a thick crunch w/ some good distortion.
