southpaw rocker Posted May 3, 2008 Report Share Posted May 3, 2008 I have two projects going on right now and I need some ideas on what to use for pickups #1- my 'lead' guitar - This guitar will be a double cutaway likely a strat because I like pickguards and the versatility that goes with it. What should I use for a pup configuation and which pickups to use. I'm pretty much decided on basswood. #2 - my other guitar -This guitar is a Les Paul shape (so the maple/mahogany combo applies here) HxH pickup configuation. I've used some EMGs (81,85,60A) But if I go that route I want versatility (81TW/89R) I also like Dimarzios (super 3, steve's special, evolution bridge, X2N) but I'm open to something different. I'm actually very partial to Dimarzios because of the sound AND color selection (aethetics are important to me) I've never really tried Duncans (I had a duncan designed (JB) in a Jackson but I didn't like it with the alder body) I generally play hard rock and some metal. My amp is a Marshall AVT. Any suggestions would be welcome. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
