Hi there ! I'm planning on getting a 7, I know more or less what I would like to get, but one question is still there : what pickups should I try ? I'm looking for a really jazzy neck pickup, something very smooth, warm, dark, that stays clean and obviously can handle the low B ! The problem is not really here, but I'd like this pickup to produce a nice distorted lead sound too, à la Petrucci. Really defined with a smooth and fluid sound when playing higher up the neck ... I know this might be two sides that may not be found on the same pickup, but you never know ... For the bridge pickup, I know more or less what I want, again something à la Petrucci (--> Dimarzio Crunchlab 7 ?), with tight lows and warm highs. I'm currently playing on a 6 with an EMG 81X in the bridge, and I really like the tight low-end, but I'd like a bit more warmth in the highs, and maybe something more "open", for these big open distorded chords. Thanks in advance for your answers, and sorry for my poor English !
