Pickups For My V


Recommended Posts

So, for my neckthru V, I will be ordering pickups tomorrow. It has a hard rock maple neck-thru neck, and dense Mahogany sides. So, I've been thinking of these humbucking combos:

1. 81b and 60n

2. 81b and 89n(coil-tapping)

3. 85b and 60n.

b=bridge, n=neck :D

So, which of these combos would fit in best with these woods? I'm going for a heavy tone obviously, but I also want a nice clean neck sound... basically, I want a very clarified high-gain tone... with plenty of bass and mids.

:D

Thanks!

I can't really say about the others but I know that the 81 and 89 combination works great with my guitar (Fender Strat Ultra). The two pickups balance quite nicely due to the contrast in tones between them. Both activated sounds really good. The 89 isn't really coil tapped. It's actually three coils in one housing. A separate single coil and humbucker. It's the only pickup of its kind I know of and it sounds great.
