    that is a loaded question [img]tongue.gif[/img] what is the neck and body wood ? also what is the neck construction
    does it have a skunk stripe or is it capped ? and are you going to use a real floyd ? and is it going to be flatmounted.
    I can say that with the Rogers kit, with the neck wood they use, the body wood they use, the neck construction they use (not only wood type but quality) the Duncan TB-5 "Custom"
    does the trick.
    Now Homeunit will tell you I'm a friggin idiot and I don't know what I'm talking about and he'll have a different idea for you so wait for his opinion also so you can have different options to think about.
    Don't get me wrong here sound is very very subjective and his as well as others opinions are valued as well.
    I will throw in that I have made just a "few" of them in my time and havn't had a complaint from anyone about what tone it can get.

    Neither. Get a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop EVH model. You'll be glad you did...

    Is it wrong that when Rol is asked a question....I get curious and check out that question that isn't for me to answer?
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    A) you should've just emailed him

    B) go with the Custom Custom, or the EVH (from Duncan's custom shop)

    More reading material.....won't be anything new to the veterans here:

    Ducan Forum's EVH vs. Custom Custom Discussion


    ......this one is kinda weak, but might help a newbie, or someone new to Duncan pickups. Basically, they reiterate that the sh-5/tb-5 (Duncan Custom) is brighter and has more harsh upper mids than the Custom Custom, or the C5. Whether or not it's a perfect fit for your particular guitar is beyond me...these are always generalizations:
