The Pickup Place / Re: Long Shot...Utopia vs Transition Set?

Great question! There is practically no information on the Utopia set out there.

freely give away their intellectual property

They never did that, so i don't understand what you mean. If someone wants to steal their property they would open up a pickup and copy it.

A normal user just wants to know how a pickup will sound. I know that Dual Resonance will give me more harmonics, but can sound buzzier than a non-Dual Resonance humbucker. I know that an Airbucker will have a subdued attack feel (i hate that), but you don't hear it when you listen to a recording. And so on.

I wonder why DiMarzio removed the patent numbers from their website? It was a perfect technical resource, so that i could always see what pickups have Dual Resonance, VV or Airbucker Design, and have a ballpark idea if they will work with my rig.

Does anyone know where i could find this detailed technical information these days? For instance i would love to know what patent numbers the Dreamcatcher and Rainmaker have... I tried in the DiMarzio catalogue PDF, but it's omitted there as well.

The Airbucker tech in the AT-1 softens the pick attack. Might be the reason you miss "bite". I tried an Airbucker once and couldn't stand the lack of response, felt kinda dead to me. But since everything is relative, it could be the ticket in a very articulated, hard sounding guitar.

The Pickup Place / Re: Is there a wiring to switch H-S-H to H-H temporarily?

Hey Moby, thanks for the useful infos. I have no access to my guitar ATM, but as soon as it's possible, i want to upgrade my pickups and then i will fiddle with the wiring. I'll post here, if there's some new developments. :)

Now that some time has passed, and i had time to think about it, i have a better idea what i actually want. I want the sounds that an Ibanez AZ can achieve, but with my HSH setup. Especially, i want some parallel wired sounds (that i can't get with H-S-H and the standard JEM wiring), and i'm not interested in HB+HB at all.

You could replace "wet" with "juicy", if you like. The meaning is the same.

written from a decade ago that I completely disagree with myself about now.

IKR? It's crazy, sometimes a feel awkward when i read old posts from myself. But it taught me that opinions and tastes often change with time, and that one should be more tolerant of others' opinions. What you hate today could be the very thing you'll love in 10 years. :)

I never understood why old threads should remain buried. The internet is a resource for information that gets searched, now, in 10 years, even in 50 years (though i doubt that this forum will survive this long).

As someone who constantly researches the interwebz and reads old threads maybe 80% of my time, i vote to keep old threads alive, i vote to open it.

IMO, there are a couple of nice tones on Eat Them And Smile (especially Ladies' Night In Buffalo). But the ultimate compendium of best guitar tones ever goes to Passion & Warfare. Without this album, i'd have never started playing electric guitar, but instead would've gone full keyboard, probably... :)

The Riddle and For The Love Of God are THE tonal heights that no one else have ever reached (not even Vai himself).

Interesting workflow. I need to try it like that. I usually like less mids pre-distortion because it makes for a cleaner, less buzzy sound.

BTW, i disagree about the Crunch Lab 7 - it's one of the most lively humbuckers i've played (in alder). Harmonics jump out of the strings really easy and the sound has a smoky sizzle that makes for a lovely lead sound. Then again, i use it with a plexi type amp (jcm800) and it's a Helix model, no real amp (i don't care about real amps, i use what sounds good to me, it can be a washing machine - if it sounds and feels good, it's good... :)

boost the mids to get some push to the higher notes.

Do you boost pre or post-distortion?

Honestly my favorite 7-string pickups for not-the-chugs is the Pegasus/Sentient set from Duncan - really even voicing, balanced, not too much of any frequency...

You guys need to specify the tone wood of the guitar in such statements. I've tried the Pegasus in an alder body Ibanez RG7 (the Apex model), and the notes in the high register were quite thin. Not a pickup for lead players!

It could very well be that a basswood body gives a more even voicing, IDK.

I'm currently very happy with my CL7 / Liquifire7 combo in that alder guitar. :)

Plus adding the single coil to all those.

Interesting. But how is it wired? Can i have the single coil only? Is the single coil combined with the humbuckers in some of the positions?
