Thanks for posting.

The riffing is not really my style of music but I hear less fizz and more fatness/midrange on the Evo.

Nice playing on the solo. Again the Evo outshines the stock pickup by far - more sensitive to pick attack, more harmonic content - more of everything.

Thanks for watching!

I think evo's sustain much better than ibanez's stock pickups.Personaly i find output is more higher than i need.Even clean tones sounds like boosted and crunchy.I had to edit my all patches on processor after change pickup.

Fully agree on the increased sustain, that's what I noted as well.

I had to edit my all patches on processor after change pickup.

That's perfectly normal and to be expected. I believe many folks would have liked replacement pickups better had they taken the time to adjust their other equipment for them. That's what gain and tone controls are for.
