Hey guys I could use some help I purchased an Andy Timmons "AT-1" humbucker Bridge pick up and Need some advice on a Neck Pick up that would Compliment the AT-1 any advice

Am thinking about Picking the Dimarzio Evolution for the Neck but im not sure if it would compliment the At-1 bridge pickup

Artist's with the tone Im looking for would be any of the following

Buckethead

Andy Timmons (Cruiser Neck I cant use because its only singlecoil)

Marco Sfogli

Neil Zaza

Going by Dimarzio's website, The Breed Neck would probably work, I've heard the AT-1 is a little like the Breed Bridge pickup and a SD JB which is what Andy has in his Original guitar.

Have you sent Dimarzio an email they are quite good at responding I think

I have not too much experience with Pick ups, but you can use Youtube and also Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio websites to hear some samples. If you want the specific sound of one of those artists, the best is to get eh same pick up that they use.

The BREED is a fine choice smile.gif Try the PICUKP PICKER on their web site. Here is the link.

And here are some options.

Of course, it should go without saying that you should go to a guitar store and try guitars similar to yours featuring as many pickups as possible through an amp similar to yours to see what you actually like.

Nothing is worse than buying gear based only advice and then not liking how it sounds. Always try before you buy even if it's a MASSIVE hassle.

Neil Zaza used a SD '59 in the neck position of his Cort Signature guitar, not sure about his Carvin

His Carvin has custom wound Carvin P/ups in it.

I'd also suggest a Seymour Duncan Jazz for your Neck position. I think you would find that a Dimarzio Evo to be slightly too hot for the AT-1.

I agree, but... bare Knuckle is quite a jump price wise compared to SD and Dimarzio

If you are looking for a customized sound, one of our Fellow GMCers actually winds pickups to taste for customers. Here is a link to his site. This is linked the Vintage/Modern model.

http://mhd-pickups.com/humbuckers/vintage-modern/


From what you've mentioned this may be the answer smile.gif

Here is his profile in GMC. He knows TONS about pickups in general, so I'd email before putting money on anything.
