The Pickup Place / Re: The NORTON in the Neck or stick to a AIR NORTON?

I found the Air Norton to be muddy, but if you are looking for fat and smooth, it should fit the bill. The PAF Pro has WAY more bite and clarity on the treble strings, although the bass strings can get a little muddy too. The PAF Joe works with the Tone Zone, and the suggestion for a Super 2 isn't a bad idea either.

     Thanks you guys.

     I was just thinking 2 bridge pickups for my guitar. It's my Frankenstein guitar. I imagine the Air Norton will be a lot in common with the PAF pro. I love that neck pickup. Just experimenting. I am way up north in Canada and do not waste time shipping back. I make myself learn any DiMarzios pickups. I struggled with the another set but love them in my other axe saving them for a high end Alder axe.

 I am not educated in different pots switching. I shred a Jackson and it delivers with a D-Activator bridge and PAF pro. Experimenting on my 6th year. I can play way better now.  Whatevers thrown, I can adapt now. I'll buy both Air Norton & NORTON will go first. I was worried it will not blend with a Tone Zone

  The PAF Pro is a fat smooth, liquid sound I did well with.


Why not try it with the TZ?

After testing this for a while I will put the screws back in. Taking them out causes a too large volume drop to my ears when used clean.

So you're looking for something fat and smooth to pair with the Zone Zone? The Air Norton+Tone Zone is a tried and true combination. Another good choice is the LiquiFire which I found to also work quite well with the Tone Zone.

  Hey there
 
  Damn! I forgot to delete Crunchy for the neck, in a rush before I made this post.. I had a D-Activator neck and was gnarly but it was too much. The PAF Pro is a fat smooth, liquid sound I did well with. A Better asked question?

  What's a better choice to go with a Tone Zone ?

The Super2 and D-Activator neck would definitely be better contenders than the Norton.

If you're after crunch from the neck position (if I got that right), and you didn't like PPro, then you definitely ought to give a chance to good old Super2. I feel it's the crunchiest neck pickup currently in DMZ lineup. It might not be the fattest of neck humbuckers, though, but it's definitely crunchy and bright and clear.

It also works as a bridge pickup, but it's a bit stiff, and can be tamed with 250kohm pot if you need it for the bridge.

Second choice, you can always put a D-Activator neck in there, that's also very crunchy and clear smooth neck pickup.

I don't think Norton is at all crunchy in the neck... or ANorton, for that matter.

The Norton in the neck was my first aftermarket pickup swap I ever did (along with an Evo in the bridge). It's been forever since I last tried it but I don't remember it being all that bad. Best I could remember, when I finally tried the Air Norton in the neck, it was essentially a fuller fat version of what I already had.

Although I don't know if I would call it a crunchy neck pickup. The only thing I can think of might be the Breed Neck but that's only because it's very crunchy when it's in the bridge position.
