The Pickup Place / Tone Zone 7
« on: January 02, 2014, 03:35:30 pm »
Ok, so I've done some research and it seems that the 7 and 6 string versions have some differences.  As expected, reviews are all over the place (it is a TZ after all, right? Filled with mostly user-error with pickup height, etc.).  But, I've heard the 7 string version is a different animal, harboring even more hate amongst the masses. 

Those of you that have played the Tone Zone 6 (my favorite pickup), how does it differ from the Tone Zone 7?  I'm thinking of putting one in a Carvin 727 (awesome guitar by the way).  Another curve ball, is that the 727 is a bit unusual in that it is a 25" scale, instead of your typical 27".   The B string needs to stay tight.

So what do you guys think of the TZ7?  Alternatives if it sucks? (i.e. keeping those buttery highs yet aggressive lows?).  Keep in mind I HATE shrill pickups in the upper frets.  I want leads to sing and growl, not cut your head off.

thanks!  As usual, you guys are the best!

The Pickup Place / Ok guys, one more! :)

Since you guys rock, I have one more question:

Looking for a recommendation for the neck of my les paul.  I need more pick attack (hair) for fast runs (sort of Yngwie style, but it doesn't have to copy the tone, just the pick attack). 

I have a PAF 36th in the neck right now, and don't get me wrong, it's great for the clean, mid-gain, and vintage vibe, but it's too polite for my fast runs.  It's almost too "woody" if that makes sense.  Like, I hear too much of the string when I pick fast, it's like I need a more distorted output from the pickup itself.  I hope that makes sense, it's kind of hard to put into words, but basically it feels under-distorted for this kind of thing.

So, I've heard good things about the HFH, the FRED, and the Gravity Storm neck.  I'm open to other suggestions too, so fire away.  Thanks gents. ;)

By the way, I've got a Tone Zone in the bridge and it kick ass, so this LP may be a bit brighter than normal.  It would need to balance with the output of the TZ too.

The Pickup Place / F spacing?

Hey guys,

I have an Ibanez as103 (335 style) that I'm replacing the bridge pickup on. Do I need an F-spaced one? (I know a lot of modern guitars have wider spacing, especially LP's). Is this the case for the ibanez artcores as well?


Hey Guys,

I have an Ibanez as103 (335 copy) guitar.  I'm looking for a bit more from my bridge pickup.  Right now I have the stock ibanez "super 58's" which are PAF copies for the most part.  The neck sounds just right, but I'm looking to cover a little more ground with the bridge (it's too vintagy and mellow, not big enough sounding).  I'd like it to rock a bit more, maybe even chug (I know, I know, 335's aren't typically known for that), but they can do some pretty heavy rock with the right pickups.

As many of you guys know, the Tone Zone is my favorite pick up, I just love how absolutely huge it sounds for leads (singing highs, etc). 

Any ideas for a dimarzio pick up that can get close to that, but still retain some vintage quality if I feel a mellow moment coming on?  Basically I want it to be able to scream for rock, but be able to do some classic rock/blues if needed. 


The Pickup Place / Wiring question
« on: May 09, 2013, 08:15:49 am »
Hey guys,

So I wired up my strat (hss) with a tone zone in the bridge - sounds awesome as usual, but I'm getting hum in the 4th (middle sc and humbucker) and 5th position (humbucker).  Is something not grounded properly? Where should I look?  Position 1, 2, & 3 behave as normal - with the hum canceling like it should in position 2 (neck and middle). Any ideas?


The Pickup Place / LP pickup question
« on: May 03, 2013, 09:06:20 am »
Hey guys,

My all time favorite pickup is the Tone Zone.  I just love it in my strats.  I would love to get that type of character in my LP's, but I keep hearing that the TZ is too bassy/muddy in the bridge of Les Pauls. 

So, what pickup would nail that TZ character in the LP, but without the mud?

thanks in advance.
