I am putting together a strat type guitar,with alder body and maple neck maple fretboard.I am going to be putting in two full sized humbuckers /no middle pup. Ok cut to the chase I really need help deciding what pickups to try out for this guitar. I want good rock metal tones but I like a pickup that will clean up when backed off.
I thought I might try the crunch lab and liquifire Dimarzios. I don`t know anything about them so I need to go investigate.
I want that pickup that can sound heavy but still have good tone sometimes a lower output pickup has better tone and sounds heavier because of it.
Pickups I have or tried SD JB`s, Bill Lawrence L500L, Dimarzio Paf, EMG`s.
I just want to try something different.
Drop a seymour duncan '59 bridge in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck maybe?
I already have a JB I could use for the bridge if I want to go with SD and just buy a neck pup and be done.I kinda want to have some Dimarzio`s in this guitar.I have always thought about trying an EVO but these new crunch & liquifire pups peaked my interest.
I just bought the Crunch lab & Liquifire set.Settles that....
