What Pickups Would You Choose?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I am still undecided on my configuration. I'm going for a guitar with 1 PC mahogany body with 3/16" maple top; maple neck with ebony fingerboard scale 25,5".

Lo Pro Edge floyd rose.

My candidates are:

Seymour Duncan 59 neck

Bill Lawrence 500XL


Di Marzio PAF Pro

Di Marzio Superdistortion

Modern rock oriented guitar.

Yeah the price of Bill's pickups is low.

I think I will go for a PAF Pro in the neck (I like some shred) and the 500XL in the bridge.

What do you think about?

I've heard a lot of very good things about Kent Armstrong pickups. They seem to be good and are about 3/4 or 1/2 the price of the 'big brand' pickups. and they do a lot of pickups that are designed for 'rock' and 'hot rod' type sounds.

they're avaliable in the UK and US too!!!

:D but if I had to choose from your candidates I'd go for the 59 and 500XL combo.....Di Marzio pickups only seem to sound like nu metal to me :D
