ok so heres the deal, my friend has an ibanez with an edge tremelo in it, i believe the body is basswood. he recently put a dimarzio humbucker in the bridge (i dont remember what kind), and hes considering putting an evolution in the neck. He wants to replace the single coil in the middle with something, and hes thinking something from fender because he wants some vintage tones, but hes hesitant because he doesnt know how it would sound when he was using the middle pickup in combination with another pickup. so does anyone have any good idea as to how this might sound? or what might be a better neck/mid combo that would work for high gain at some times and vintage sounds for others?
fender pickups are fine but are a tad overpriced, other pickups are just as good for less dosh.
put a lace sensor in. they're high-output and should work. i'd say either a silver or emerald, check the descriptions and see what you think. you can get them cheaper on ebay or getting them individually if you need that, otherwise just get a set and put the other 2 pickups in another guitar if you need to
