    Wow... EMG's for fusion? That is most DEFINITELY the first time I have ever heard that suggestion.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Patrice Vigier was quoted as saying that towards the end Shawn Lane had ditched the Lace pups and gone back to Dimarzios. I think he used a Tone Zone at the bridge and a PAF Pro at the neck.

    Be sure to check out the Shawn Lane Forum over at www.noproblemhere.com

    Very cool forum with tons info. Shawn's sister as well as a couple of his closet friends and even Patrice Vigier are members.

    Yep... sounds MUCH better to me today. I listened to all of your clips... you've got alot of talent, dude. I loved some of those sweeping sequences you did in that one clip. Yeah, we all wish we were alot cleaner playing stuff, but that comes with practice... which I KNOW we all have lots of time to do.

    Anyway, thanks for the clips, dude. Sounded much better through my studio monitors here at home.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Thanks for reminding me to go re-listen. Let me fire up the old monitors here at home and see what's what.. opinions forthcoming shortly.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hmmm.. that's not one I have heard of... unless it's just a fancier name for Fender's Lace Sensor pickups of the early 90's? I seem to recall Gold, Blue and Red models. I thought Shawn used mainly the PAF and PAF Pro from DiMarzio though.. at least in his Ibanez Ghostrider. Not totally sure about that.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    You may want to investigate the Lace Transensor pickups... as used by Shawn Lane.

    They are very good pickups.

    ahh leave it i'll just post my perferences and be done with it

    EMG: 89's and SA - definatly! very versatile pickups over all and have great warm clear and articulate tone, IMO fit just for this purpose.
    Duncans: lots of possibilities depending on the voicing you want, the Alnico 2 Pro humbucker and the JB are very good for this genre IMO.

    Butch,

    Thanks again,
    Jeff

    Lebanon is half-way between Cincinnati and Dayton if you're taking I-75. You yake the Monroe exit to SR-63 and it's about 10 miles down that highway.

    If you take I-71 north from Cincy, it's about 28 miles from downtown Cincy.

    Gotcha. Thanks, Butch.

    Lebanon... hmmm.. is that East of Cincy? I can't recall my geography of that area all that well. I'm originally from a little town called Canal Fulton up near Canton and Akron.

    Later,
    Jeff

    Personally, I like the SH-5 in any guitar...For a really bright guitar, I'll use the SH-11.

    I live in Lebanon.

    Butch,

    Care to expound on that thought? For instance, are you recommending the SH-5 for a mahogany guitar because it tends to balance out the darkness of the wood, or perhaps you are saying the SH-5 tends to be darker and goes better with a brighter wood like alder or maple?

    OT: What part of Cincy are you in? I went to school at UC.. gradjeeated with a d-gree in electrical engineering in '95. Five of the worst years of my life are now forever staked to that city for me.
