so what neck pickup would be suitable for clean and fluid sweeps (i use my neck pup for sweeps) and for fast runs?

and what bridge pickup would be suitable for heavy and tight distortion whilst still being suitable for shred like runs and licks?

i hope you can help me out


PAFpro neck-great for 'fluid' sweeps,and a X2N-bridge - tight,high output
EVO set,better for picking runs(neck),and a great bridge pickup.Work great with Ibanez's.Popular choice,too.
