Pick the fate of my RG350, lots of great choices but I can't pick one.

recommend based on your actual experiences with the choices, if no experiences then recommend something that come in the area of my choices.

I was like uh I have a poll you know but I figured I would clarify for others before they voted.

Tuning/Music?

I've used every pickup on that list except the Evo2 and the BKPs. :lol: The TZ/AN is great if you do E or Eb, but with lower tunings sounds less than stellar. The D-activators sound good through a thick amp tone, but sounds thin with a Marshally type tone, IMO.

If you're looking for good all around and have a decently middy amp, I would go Steve's Special/Liquifire. I definitely prefer the LF to the AN.

I own guitars with both D'activators and BKP's. 2 very different guitars mind you (neckthru, mahogany, 25.5" vs. bolt-on and basswood at 26.5"), but for me, the BKP wins hands down. However, what tuning and style of music? Saying BKP's and no specific choices is a bit a broad scale too, since they do ALOT of pick-ups.

I'm really enjoying the Norton/HumFromHell in my LTD EX-50.

tuning is going to be standard only since it's going to be floyd equipped, planning on getting a rg321 for Drop C and what not. basically everything on the poll is what i've heard on youtube/have used in the past that I really enjoyed just can't figure which set. BTW the BKP choice was more of a joke, those cost more than what I paid for the guitar :rofl:

now that I think about it, I need a set that is very versatile with the switching I plan to use on it. My 5 way switch will go like this...

Bridge hum - inner coils - both hums - outter coils - Neck hum

I feel like if I had just gotten a 350 for use in standard tuning and wasn't going for BKPs, I'd put a Tone Zone/Liquifire in there.

I'm in a similar position figuring out what goes into my 7421. I'm thinking D-Activator bridge and LiquiFire neck. I voted Noodles though since he'll fit with only mild routing.

shit he doesn't require routing to fit in any cavity.
