[QUOTE]Originally posted by firstwardrocker i have a ibanez grx40 would it be worth putting a dimarzio steve's special in the bridge?would it sound better?
i have some advice for you on sound
first of all make sure that you are using a good
quality guitar(which means your guitar is worth over
£700.second make sure your amp is a good model
i recomend marshall or mesa boogie.
use at least a 60 or 100 watt.
i recomend emg pickups as these are active pickups
and can produce far more output than dimarzios
or seymour duncans.
also active pickups are noise free and dont have any
hum at all. remember when looking for a good sound
make sure you spend 70% on a guitar 20% on an amp
and 10% on pickups
the quality of the wood in a guitar and the quality
of the valves in a an amp should always be
the priority before changing pickups.
the pickups i use are an emg 85 in the neck
and an emg 81 in the bridge
check out the emg website for more info [url]http://www.emgpickups.com
these pickups do not disappoint.
