  • Anybody tried Andy Timmons' pickup?

    I need to swap the bridge pickup on my Ibanez SZ, and Dimarzio's website says these are designed for mahogany-bodied, 25" scale guitars. Being a fan of Timmons, and knowing there are some other fanboys on here, I was wondering if any of you guys had any experience with it.

    I'm waiting for an answer to this one. I'm curious about this also.

        Before this pickup was released to the public, I called Dimarzio and asked what the closest pickup to it was.

        He said it was very close to a Breed Neck.

        Installed brred neck in bridge of my Ibanez. Its OK, like a fat Paf Pro. Very generic Tone, like Timmons. Not as much harmonics or growl as a Fred, not as sharp and cutting like a Paf Pro. Its got a good bit of mid honk is the best way to describe it. Not too hot, so its still open-ish sounding.

        This was a VERY SHORT love affair with timmons, his playing, and his tone. It was nice to hear another shred voice for about a week, but he's just not all that.

            Just get 'em. They're just pickups. I'm sure if Andy were to play your Ibanez SZ you wouldn't feel the need to change out your pickups (unless they are broken).

              True. Andy will still sound like Andy through anyone's rig, however I like to do a little research before making a purchase.

                    C'mon, dont pretend that even good guitarists can pick Timmons tone out of a lineup. He's got a standard, mid-output bucker tone.

                    And I play ibanez sabres like timmons, his tone is just not happenin. Mid honk with a glassy top.

                          You're a retard or a troll. No middle ground.

                            I think it MIGHT be a relabeled Dimarzio "Double Whammy." They took this pup out of the catalog a couple years before the breed came out.

                              No, its basically a Bred Neck. Same specs. The Double Whammy is much hotter.
