    I almost died when Adam wasnt walking to the mic for the solo. I thought they ended the song at that point and was sucking, then BOOM! Solo!!

    how does adam strike a chord / hit a note and it has unlimited delay,
    then starts the next progression with zero delay, and he never touches
    a pedal... no quarter is full of that kind of action.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a big Tool fan, Adam Jones is my favorite guitarist. I own a 2011 Gibson LP Classic+ with a 500T humbucker bridge's pickup. I play Tool songs with my band and I find that my sound is not as "precise" as I need with the 500T. I tried a lot of effects and settings but I still get this "dirty" result. Which pickup do you think that I must choose ? I'd like to keep the power of the 500T with a more precise sound in Drop D big distortion configuration (Di Marzio ? Seymour Duncan ? Which model ?) ?

    Thanks a lot guys for your help !

    Which amp are you using? By dirty do you mean lack of clarity or muddy?

    I'm not familiar with the 500T. Does it clean up well? If so, try rolling it back and tweaking your amp to make up for the pickup gain.

    Thanks a lot Kingedb for your fast answer :).
    I use the EVH 5150 50w amp with Orange 2x12 V30 cabinet.
    I tried to drive away the pickup from the strings and, indeed, it's better. But I still feel a lack of clarity.
    I had a look on DiMarzio's web site and the configurator proposed me the DP245 pickup. What do you think ?

    I'm not familiar with that pickup either. I had no problems getting there with a Seymour Duncan JB bridge.

    Hou, it's interesting. You do installed the JB ? Like Adam Jones is supposed to ? Do you enjoy the heavy sound with it ? Because I red a lot about this configuration and the fact that it's not the best choice actually. What is you're guitar ?

    I have a Silverburst Custom (my avatar). The JB in the bridge. I stopped chasing Adams tone once I installed that pickup. I can't make any gurantees of course. I'm not familiar with your amp.

    Try the Dimarzio and see if you get there. It's certainly possible.

    Ha. No, I don't have those amps. For Tool tones I mainly use a Phaez Daisycutter with an OD Pedal.

    I finally figured it out.

    There will be no more Tool albums released. This is all from JMK artsy side of him. This will be a statement to leave the fans on edge, teasing them, holding them in his hand. FOREVER.

    I wish someone would punch me square in the face.

    Maybe I'll go downtown to a bar tonight and agg on a biker or something.

    It just feels right for some reason.

    I only found this thread today. Wish I did sooner. I live in South Africa, so the odds of me ever seeing a Tool show is 0 to none, but I can dream though.

    Also a pretty cool piece of Justin...
