Looking for a Heavy Blues 2 virtual vintage in good shape.


The Trading Post / FS: Like new DiMarzio FS-1 DP110

Like new Dimarzio FS-1 DP110 with plenty of lead left. Black cover.

$38 shipped - Continental US.


Yup. Been saying it for years. The Tone Zone is killer. My favorite pickup of all time. A ton of user-error surrounds the stigma of this pickup, so take any negative opinions with a grain of salt.

Tone Zone.

...what he said...

also, the usual wiring scheme for dimarzio's is Red=hot, Green and Bare soldered together = Ground, black and white soldered together and taped off.  This of course, unless you're planning to split the humbucker, but the wiring looks funky to me color-wise.

I know this is an old post but I have a new regular spaced PAF 36th I'll trade you for the air Norton.

Great pickup!  Sounds amazing in the neck position of a bright guitar! (I call it the Tone Zone for the neck)

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!

Update.  I had an Air Zone lying around so I figured I would go with my gut since I'm such a Tone Zone junky and give that a go before I ordered any pickups. 

Man, this thing just sings now! (feedback's not a problem either, unless I'm right in front of my amp, basically like all my other guitars).  Chugs? Yes. Soaring leads? Yes.  Rollback volume knob for vintagy blues? Yup.

Turns out I am staying with the neck pickup.  The Super 58 is just right - woody and buttery with plenty of clarity.

This guitar is super versatile now.  totally stoked.

Thanks for the replies guys. 

I figured I'd try some more adjustments to the pickup height and pole screws before I sprang for another pickup and I'm glad I did.  I was able to nail the tone I was looking for.  Turns out the PAF's are even more versatile than I thought!  Sounds awesome now!   :madness:

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.

Thanks :)

The as103 is a fantastic guitar!

I honestly like it better than than the es335's I've played.

It's actually a few years old, but it's the one with the tunomatic bridge (not the fine tuners).
