RECCOMENDATION ON PICKUPS

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

not what I asked. I wanted opinions and needed to know this stuff before a purchase. I asked a question, Jeries gave me a pretty good answer. The forum is for discussing this "chatter", especially when the forum is marked in different sections and this is the Amps Studios & Gear section. This is the place for me to ask these questions, and yes, these opinions are important to me because I play my Ibanez electric through an amplifier.

I play a flemenco guitar most of the time it was hand crafted in spain and a very beautiful guitar I dont need amps pick ups or any of that expensive shit ,..though my flemenco guitar was very expensive all I need to do is put good strings on it from time to time,...and it sounds beautiful by its self dont need a fucking band just me,..its great,..!!!!

Thats cool Kyle I think I did mention the PAF as my fav ,.as I also play the electric guitar through an amp,..
though my last comment I was directing at Jeries,..perhaps I should have quoted it seeing there are people here that are rather sensitive, I meant no offence and Kyle just reading the last couple of posts you have written seem to be aimed at me and I have been posting in the right colom ,..yes I have been keeping to the rules ,..any way I hope you find the right pick up for your guitar ,..
cheers aaron

not sensetivity, just a twinge of annoyance. You just have a habit of expressing your feelings of how you hate the gear and tech talk on the forum. It does matter everyones opinion, but this topic was for pickups. Sorry, I sound like a mod :)

his opinion was important. I was looking at the FRED the paf the Evo 2 and a regular evo. Sustain is important at least to me (wig the sustainer off of course ;) ) and his saying that sustain of the Fred is not good. No hard feelings.

What i've decided to do is to install a terminal block into the control cavity wired to the bridge pickup for now and have a few different pickups then i can just change them from time to time and be able to hopefully use each pickup to its potential,so i will be able to have a Fred and an Evo and an Evo2 and a Satans Bitch etc and be able to swap them myself without having to solder or anything like that,just a screwdriver,and it only cost me about 4 bucks from the hardware store.

I guess your guitar is from basswood, if so, go with an Evo2. :wink:
