What are the pickups on the RGT320s based on

I was planning to buy one but I cannot test it out

I want to base it from DiMarzios I have used before for example tonezone, evo, x2n and drop sonic

Re: Dimarzio/Ibz

I was listening to some clips of people using the rgt320 with dimarzio/ibz pickups but it was hard to identify as they drowned it with distortion

But to me they are close to paf pros, can anyone clarify this?

The stock DiMarzios in my RG2550E were pretty good, much better than the V7/V8 combo. I added the DiMarzio/ibz's to an old Jackson of mine.

This should answer your question

The DiMarzio®/IBZ pickups in the Ibanez RG2120 and RG2570EX are specifically designed and manufactured by DiMarzio® for Ibanez, and they are not available separately. Like all DiMarzio® pickups, they are made in our New York factory. Both neck and bridge pickups are high-output models. The neck pickup is fairly bright-sounding, similar to a Super 2™ (DP104). The bridge pickup is a little louder and warmer-sounding, and resembles a cross between the Steve Morse Bridge Model™ (DP200) and the Super Distortion® (DP100). The R1 single-coil is warmer-sounding than a typical vintage single-coil, and was designed to work well with the neck and bridge humbuckers when they are in split mode. It has a sound similar to that of the HS-2™ in split-coil mode
