YES. I put one in my squire strat. Sounds amazing. If you like rock/blues-rock/blues that is. It can do funk, but metal...prolly not.

You clearly have no idea how personal tone works.
Saying Billy Gibbons used them doesn't mean that you'll like them or they'll sound good for what you want to do.

You'd be better off not double posting within 3 minutes. Use the edit button. It's there for a reason.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

The PG should be fine. Also consider the Dimarzio ToneZone (for bridge) and Super Distortion

you'd be best served by reading the rules. this is the internet, but more importantly, this is UG, and there are certain rules you have to adhere to in order to be a part of this community.

I would use the neck for stuff that is soft and then switch to bridge for heavier parts.

....Why would you NEEED to switch guitars mid-song? That seems impractical.


The Pearly Gates are what I think of when someone needs rude, crude blues rock. Not a great clean pickup.
#13
you'd probably be better off getting a bridge pup that would sound great heavy as hell and a neck pup that is geared more toward cleans

such as (for example only)

Bridge pup - Dimarzio D-sonic
Neck pup - Dimarzio Humbucker from hell

Sorry, but things only look cool when they're done naturally, if you're going out of your way to do something impractical like that, you just look like you're trying way too hard. Which you are. Do yeah. Don't.

Would you go to McDonalds for a burger and then Burger King for fries? For the same meal?

dont be an ass

i found a guitar shape i like, i have 2 of them, so i'm usin different pickups for different sounds. dont call the dimebucker a piece of crap....its great for what i'm using it for and the sound i'm after. i'm lookin for advice not criticism

i'm in the recording stage, so i can switch guitars as often as i want...not in concert or anything like that.
#19
Okay. The recording instead of live thing is crucial. But still.
He's allowed to call the dimebucker a piece of crap. In reality, it is. It's overpriced for what you get. people only buy it because it's got Dime's name, even though he never even used it.

fair enough, but you can do pinch harmonics without even thinking about it
plus most of the dean guitars you pick up nowadays are equipped with dimebuckers

OOOH, Pinch. Yay.

You won't get any sympathy with that one either, because most of us feel like deans are overpriced hunks of shit with strings. Again, Dime's name.

I can do the same thing on my vintage output single coil equipped Strat copy...It's all about your technique and your amp.
