What will match better with Air Norton?
« on: November 29, 2018, 04:29:47 pm »
I have a RG470 with the original V7 on the neck and a DiMarzio Super Distortion for bridge.
I really don't dislike the V7 pickup, but I want to change it with something better and maybe slightly higher output.

I have an Air Norton (the JP Custom version) and D-Sonic on a cheaper RG that I don't use anymore.
I really like the dark and compressed tone of the Air Norton(neck) on basswood guitars, but I am not good enough to ear the differences between D-Sonic and Super Distortion.

Is it a good idea to switch the V7 with the Air Norton and match it with the SD on the 470? Do you prefer the D-Sonic over the SD?

Somebody suggest me to buy a PAF 36th as an alternative to the Air Norton. I am reading only positive reviews about it, but I am afraid it will be too bright on my RG. What do you think?

The Air Norton would pair up fine with the Super Distortion. I've had good success with it in the past.
