I need help deciding on new pickups because my local music store is having a giant sale thursday

I play an Ibanez IC400 with the stock pickups and I want something a little better.
I play every genre of music but usually stick around Blues and Rock (Led Zeppelin to Primus).

What should I get ? (I was looking at the Dimarzio Evolutions or Seymour duncan Sh-1 and pearly gate pickups)

Any suggestions?

custom 5/jazz? (i could be wrong with the custom 5)

evo's are way off of what you play
btw, what's your current rig look like, just out of question?

EMG's kick ass


I love EMG's, but I wouldn't get them for blues and rock. They are really for metal.
Steve Vai uses the Dimarzio Evolutions, they sound very nice, but I've never heard them through a valve amp (aside from his Royal Vai-ness's Recordings).
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's
Plum Team FTW!

well i am gonna "half "agree with the bird,..even thou the coward poked sticks at me when i was in UG prison!!

dont get the evolutions!!

i havent found a situation that a drop sonic wont cover yet!!....the thing that sucks about pick ups is ya cant try them out..even if you try another guitar that has the pick up your interested in,...they are so sensitive to the wood and particular guitar there in!!

good luck

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

EMG's dont really kick ass for anything. I'd recommend Seymour Duncan's an SH 2 Jazz i think it is for the neck, and maybe an sh4 for the bridge (hope i got it the right way around)

I have had a bit of experience with both seymour duncans and EMG's and i much prefer the seymour duncans personally
RG's & Mesa's

DiMarzio Tone Zone bridge, Air Zone in neck.

Seymour Duncan's JB/'59 had been standards for years.

I personally suggest the P-Rails, very versatile, especially if you have the two push-pull pots for all 4 sounds in both humbuckers.
