I bought a set of Dimarzio Titans for this guitar, and I love them. However, I don't think they are quite what this guitar needs. What I'm finding out about the bridge pickup is: It's very tight sounding. I love this, but it almost seems excessive, because this guitar is bright sounding on it's own. It's a little lower in output than I would prefer. Compared to the D Activator I have in my SIR27FD, the Titan isn't nearly as loud. I pick really hard, but it's more fun when it's not as "necessary". I play riffy blackened death metal 90% of the time, so quick and responsive attack is my thing. I love the fact that every note and bend in my chords are totally audible, but with this guitar I think it's easily possible to get the same thing with a pickup that gels a little better with this guitar. For the neck pickup: It's very similar in output to the PAF7, but it's much more thick sounding to my ears. I like it, and it'd probably sound wicked with lots of effects and put in a busy mix. Most of time I play by myself, so it's not really conducive to my situation. I'd prefer something less thick sounding and maybe a smidge more output for this guitar. What I'm thinking about buying is a D-Actvator X for the bridge, and a D-Activator neck (standard) for the neck. Will this combo get me where I need to go?
