    Depending on the guitar it's going in, I like the SH-5 for Fusion.

    i know that back in his ibanez days, gambale used the dimarzio dual sound ... i love the sound he got with those on his solo record 'present for the future', the second chick corea elektrik band record, and the vital information records of that time

    i play fusion-y stuff from time to time and really have no problem getting satisfying tone from my alnico II pro or '59 in the neck, and JB or C5 in the bridge ... i bet you could do the same

    good luck

    I have it in an all maple, neck thru axe with an ebony fretboard and a wilkinson trem. Big mids are the order of the day, but in this axe, the lows and the highs are very well represented. Harmonics jump off the fingerboard and leads are always fat. Theres an aggressive quality to it that I most people don't mention. I like it a lot.

    I play fusioney stuff with either my Carvin DC127T or with my Paul. In the Carvin, I have an Alnico II Pro 'bucker at the neck and a CC at the bridge. Awesome cleans and big thick leads with OD at the bridge. In the Lester, I have a Pearly Gates set. They have an awesome PAF style voicing with enough sparkle to cut though the mix.

    Thanks, dude. Like I said, I dug the clip but need to hit the sack and listen again with fresh ears tomorrow before I give my thoughts.

    Thanks again,
    Jeff

    frank gambale uses a JB but i know you dont like that, and all the others use dimarzio. and i think greg howe uses a JB in one of his ESP's. i use a Duncan Custom in my main axe and a super distortion in my other charvel and super d in my les paul(which i'll be replacing soon, it's kinda muddy)
    i have a clip, and i just posted it in the other thread

  • Fusion guys.. what pups are you using from SD or DiMarzio?

    Hey guys,

    While I am currently fairly decided on the pups that will be going in my three main guitars, I'd still like to get some feedback as far as what the jazz/rock fusion guys are using pup-wise, just in case my current plans sound like ca-ca once they go in. I tend to like artists like Brett Garsed, Shawn Lane, Greg Howe, Frank Gambale and similar artists. Anyone have any thoughts on Seymour or DiMarzio's that are in the fusion vein? Anyone have some clips of them using any of these in a fusion setting?

    Thanks guys,
    Jeff
