The Pickup Place / Re: Pickup used on Ibanez JEM middle position?

If you are keeping the PAF Pro in the neck, a Tone Zone or Air Zone bridge works well with it.

The Pickup Place / Re: Non F spaced with a Floyd?

The strings won't be aligned perfectly, but most of the time I can't hear a difference. I have a couple of regular spaced Dimarzios where I'm supposed to have an F-spaced.

The Paf Pro and Liquifire neck also work well with the Super D

A few things to consider:
Is your strat routed for HSH configuration, or HSS?
Most humbuckers do not work well with the 250k pots in strats. They need 500k pots.
No normal strat switch will do what you want. You will need a superswitch.
The Super D and Super 2 are a great combo, but sometimes they are so similar that they sound like the extended range of one pickup instead of having a distinct shift in tone from neck to bridge. Only a problem if you want a very distinct shift in tone when switching from neck to bridge.

Tone Zone, or Air Zone, or Fred.

I remember liking the Virtual Hot Paf and Virtual PAF neck when they came out way back when, but I recently found a used Virtual Hot Paf and thought I would try it again. I couldn't believe how artificial it sounds to me now. I don't know whether my taste in pickups has just changed, or it was just because I had it in another guitar, but what I remembered as a 3-d sound just sounds "fake" to me now.

I like the Cruiser Bridge in the middle position with a Fred Bridge and Paf Joe Neck. I also like the Evolution Middle pickup pretty well.

Mahogany body.... chug chug..?  Sounds like you need an Invader Bridge. Its not as over the top as people think.

The Pickup Place / Re: Is the Area 58 thicker?
« on: October 19, 2019, 10:40:25 am »
Its a different EQ, but I wouldn't say its much thicker. It has more bass I guess. The 61 would be a thicker tone.

Both F-spaced and Regular spaced pickups will work in PRS SE guitars. Neither one is too far off from the string spacing.

Guitar Lounge / Re: Thoughts and Opinions on Yamaha?

I dunno, Yamaha electrics have always felt to me like a bunch of parts stuck together, not an organic whole. Their tone, while not bad, has no real personality. Like a guitar built by engineers with no real guitar player input.

From what I understand, the 36th set was an attempt to make a set SOUND like his old PAF set, using more modern technology. The Paf 59 set was an attempt to make a set that was more PHYSICALLY accurate to the older PAF type pickups. I have tried both, and still have only the 36th set...

The Pickup Place / Re: PICKUP SET for IBANEZ RGAR42MFMT

I have a Norton Bridge and a Fred neck in a mahogany body/maple cap PRS 245, and they make a great combo. Balanced, easy to get harmonics with both, and they compliment each other well.

Since I posted in this thread several years ago, I have had the HFH in several guitars. In every case, I eventually ended up thinking it needed slightly more power and felt/sounded a little stiff and sterile. I ended up replacing it with a PAF Joe. I like the Fred / Paf Joe combo better.

The Pickup Place / Re: Breed Neck/Bridge in Ibanez S-type
« on: September 14, 2019, 02:49:49 pm »
I tried the Breed set in a mahogany bodied Ibanez S470, a mahogany PRS Santana SE, and a basswood Ibanez RG , and did not like them in either. They seemed very boring, underpowered, and unimpressive. I put the same set in my Alder Jackson DK2M and they came to life. Bridge screams, and the neck has some bubbly Les Paul character to it. I think you have to get those in the right guitar.
