Hi everyone! After almost a decade playing Seymour Duncan pickups, I decided to switch to Dimarzio to finally have a Super Distortion equipped guitar, and explore other tone options. After failing to nail ''my tone'' with a Transition and later a PAF Master in the neck, I finally got the tone I want with the Super Distortion/PAF Pro combination. It's the real deal!!!

I was just wondering what should be my next in my tone quest!
If I could ''fix'' something, I would like more clarity, attack, and more output of the PAF Pro. Am I crazy?  ;D
The Super Distortion is perfect as it's. I would like something in that same vein.

Here's my guitar! :D




PS. The Super Distortion/PAF Pro combo ain't going anywhere. Just would like to brainstorm ideas for the future!

 ;D The Super Distortion is definitely a keeper.  ;D
I was thinking of venturing more into the PAF Pro Family, like the Satriani pickups, I imagine that some of Vai's like the Breed. I dig the hex poles vibe.  :)

I have one guitar with a SD in the bridge and a Breed neck in the neck, and the Breed neck is just what you are describing.

Next thing after a super D and paf pro in a flying V - Has to be either a Marshall 2203 or 1959 into a full stack, maybe with a little goosing from a tube screamer.

Ouch, that is going to be loud. But certainly a lot of fun.

Indeed! I have a Blackstar HT-40 with JJ Tubes installed. While not a full stack, it's pretty good sounding!  ;D   I'm very happy with them. I have a PAF Master set in the house. I'm still wondering if I should install them on my Gibson SG or sell them. I like them, but worry the PAF Master neck is too bass lean (lacking bass). Has anyone here solved that issue or know how to figure it out? My HT-40 doesn't have bass controls on the clean channel*
