Alright', I'm free yesterday and change the direction of the evo neck and you know what. There's not much difference to be called it different at all, just with the lead towards the neck is a bit louder but in terms of tone it's the same.

Evo neck is somewhat close to Paf Pro. Both have some single-coil hi-end and pick attack and cut through the mix easily. However, the Evo neck also has more midrange and low end, which makes it a bit louder, fuller, fatter, and punchier than Paf Pro. The lows are brighter and the overall sound is more aggressive than the Pro, probably due to the Ceramic magnet.

If you like Paf Pro and is looking for something a bit fatter and more aggressive with a great pick attack, the Evo Neck may be a good choice.

It is a great match for the Evo 2 in the bridge...

I will second that as this is exactly my situation: I had a paf pro and was looking for something slightly fatter and more aggressive (more pick attack). The EVO neck seemed a perfect fit on the paper, I asked to DiMarzio for confirmation (I gave my experiences with other pickups, the likes and dislikes) but I wasn't advised an EVO neck as I disliked the air norton (I was pretty surprised to say the least): I was suggested the illuminator and the transition neck. Didn't help me much this time. Some guys on forums suggested the gravity storm neck  along with the EVO neck which really seemed to match my research. I eventually went for the EVO neck and I'm very happy because this is the perfect match for what I was searching for.

I also have an EVO 2 in bridge and I also second the fact that they match perfectly together.

Hey Satch_JR,
Kind of in the boat as you were at the time you posted. I am looking to pair a Fred with a neck pickup in a RG550 that currently has an Air  Norton.  I want something that is maybe brighter than the AN with more clear/ cutting low string notes, and with solid harmonics that wouldn't over power the Fred in the bridge. I emailed the good folks at Dimarzio with my request for suggestions. I also mentioned the AN as being the pickup I want to replace. They emailed back to try an Air Classic in the neck.  Everything I have  read about Dimarzio's customer support in this regard has been very positive, with great advice and I am certainly taking it seriously. I am wondering if they didn't mention the Evo neck because I didn't like the AN and or made a point about matching the Fred in output.  I read in this thread that LuredMaul has tried the Evo neck flipped and didn't notice a difference in sound but did notice the pickup was not as loud.  This pickup was not on my radar due to the ceramic magnet and also the though that it might overpower the Fred.  Reading thru this thread and also an experience playing a friends G&L Legacy with MFD ceramics. They sounded great, got great harmonics ( I have good technique) and while turning down the guitar vol didn't make them sound like a whole new experience they did clean up pretty well. Thanks for posting your experience, as well as everyone else that contributes to this and really everything else on this site.

Thanks!
in order to match the fred output you can simply adjust the EVO height: pull it away from the strings
