    What would go good with a really bright guitar. Swamp ash maple top, maple neck and fret board?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Thanks man, would you also recommend me something more commercial, i.e Dimarzio or SD. Thanks for the help though will consider it :)

    Dimarzio Humbucker from Hell, wired in parallel. Graphtech Ghost, wired straight to the output jack. Don't do your EQ in the pickups, or when you want more clarity, it won't be there.

    Tone Zone. I had one in a guitar with a swamp ash body and maple neck and fretboard and it sounded so damn good. Highly recommended. :yesway:

    Most DiMarzio's are designed with low end sucking (usually floyd equipped) guitars in mind. The D-Sonic I find works really nicely in very bright guitars (such as my maple neck thru alder w/Floyd Jackson RR1) as well as the Super Distortion or Super 3 if you want power, the Tone Zone is the original counter-balance for bright guitars and I think the PAF Pro does it nicely too because it's so transparent, and though the lows aren't loud, they are very clear and present.
