I want to change the bridge pickup in my Charvel Model 6.
Right now it has a Seymour Duncan Invader in the bridge, and I am not too happy with how it sounds.
Recently I bought a Seymour Duncan Distortion (Bridge) and a Dimarzio Evolution (Bridge) my intention was to dump one of them in my Model 6. Both were Ebay impulse buys.
But then yesterday I scored a Dimarzio Evolution NECK pickup off Ebay.
I also have a 750 XL, currently loaded out with PAF Pro in the neck and Dimarzio Breed bridge in the...bridge. I think it sounds OK. The breed sounds a little jangly, I wanted something a little darker/full bodied, rounder/tubular etc.
I was thinking though, if I dropped both Evos into the 750XL, would I get a screaming hellhound machine sounded as if it was crafted by gods (= good!) Or would the Evos just not work? There's lots of hype around them.
Or should I put an Evo bridge into the 6? Mix and match? Take the breed from the 750 and put it in the 6? Or I have a cheap Aria guitar HSH which is sitting unused and empty, pickup wise. Pretty sure it is basswood, which the Evos were built for IIRC?
Stylistically I play Fusion, shred, Shawn Lane, Vai, Timmons and Satch stuff, and also hair metal (hence my username).
Any advice would be very much appreciated. I tried using the Seymour Ducan and Dimarzio tone wizards, but it doesn't have an option for "Mahogany body with maple top" (750XL). Model 6 is Maple through neck with poplar wings.
Sorry for the long post and thanks again. My first psot here, BTW. great site!
