    Any of DiMarzio’s PAF vintage output humbuckers will be suitable. PAF 59s, PAF Masters, PAF 36th Anniversary. They all try to replicate the late 50s/early 60s tone.

    Faced the same dilemma here, too. I play a lot of the 50s and 60s and wanted something with more spank.

    I agree with the Doctor. The DiMarzio Area pickups sound vintage-like. I use an Area 61...

    From a purely practical view, I suggest the AL. You can get an aftermarket P90/P90/P90 pickguard for a few US dollars if you decide on the Sterling line. Otherwise, as beej pointed out there are 3...

    Just spitballing here, but it looks like the pickup is angled down a bit. Maybe the screws aren’t in the pickup claws straight?

    As for the buzzing, is it possibly fret buzz? Has the guitar been...

    I agree with purchasing new back plates for the guitars you want to sell. You can always offer to include the signed plates (for a slight fee) if you don’t want those particular items.

    I should read posts more clearly. Sitting down the AL feels more like an offset than a Silhouette, I agree.

    Showing my age here, but I thought that was very reminiscent of George Lynch’s tone when he played with Dokken. Flashback to Mr. Scary. Melodic.

    How would it look if you cut the pickguard below the pickups, parallel with the neck? Give it a quasi Les Paul/Cabronita vibe.

    I echo Glenn’s sentiment. If you’ve encourage others to try EBMM products through respected input and usage I’d call that a valued customer.

    Bad consumer perhaps.
