I happen to have a 25th anniversary fluorescent pink(couldn't resist the craziness) Ibanez Rg(rg2xxv) its a great guitar but the pickups are NOT for me. Its the infinity pickups that they use on most(all?) middle price models. I find the "bland" sounding. They are hot enough to kick my amp into a hard overdrive but they lack "definition" so to speak. What kind of pickups would you recommend(both neck and bridge)? For the bridge i look for something thats dirty, but doesn't get to muddy when using distortion. I like to riff around a lot as opposed to just do power chords and i want those notes to really break through the effects and grab you by the balls. Id prefer a pickup thats a little bit trebly(but not harsh) sounding so it will cut trough a mix. Doesn't have to be a high output pickup. For the neck, something that work´s for nice cleans and some dirty low gain blus type of thing. But not to boomy/bassy/muddy. This axe is my workhorse, its going to see everything from 80´s metal(everything from hair metal to priest) to blues and clean ballads. Wich is what i always tend to end up playing wether i like it or not. Im not being these pickups today, in fact it may take months before i pull the trigger. It all depends on how soon my strat is finished and how the economy is looking. But id like to know what I'm saving my bucks for, and what I'm going to scan the internet for good deals on.
