I got my Jackson Rhoads Pro and I'm no fan of EMGs so I have to decide what passives replace them.
It's, poplar, neck thru, ebony f.board, schaller trem. We decided acoustically it sounded like a balanced tone - so I'm inclined to go along this path.
(Aesthetically I reckoned that the nickel or black covers that Seymour Duncan do would be rad, maybe an Alternative 8 and something else?)
I will appreciate the imparting of all knowledge, cheers!
this is really a personal preference thing, you wont know till you try. For what its worth i'm a fan of SD JB's and Distortions for bridge pickups and 59's and Jazz for neck pickups.
i also really like bareknuckle black dogs.
