Another thread on "which pickups should I get?"
I have a lovely Ibanez RGD with not as lovely pickups. The V7/V8 set is a bit muddy for my liking so I'd like to replace them but I don't know what with. As per usual, the body is basswood, it's a 6 stringer and I play in D standard. I'm looking for a pretty fat bridge rhythm sound with plenty of definition for Prog-Death riffs and a versatile neck pickup for very clear clean sections and maybe *that* glossy (if you get what I mean?) lead sound.
The pickups on my build from last year (Duncan Distortion and Hot Stack) do pretty well at that although the neck pickup isn't hot enough for lead guitar. However, I'd like to try something new. Got no experience with Dimarzios and it's been ages since I had EMGs. (Pretty interested in the 81/85 if I can work out a convenient way to change batteries)
I put DiMarzio Titans in my RGA a few weeks ago. I like them a lot, but I'm a year into having picked up my first guitar so there's that.
