new pups suggestion?

right now i want to get new pickups for my ibanez art100(mahogany body)and i'm currently running it through my blackstar ht5 combo tube amp and i'm looking for a good lead metal passive neck pickup to go with my seymour duncan jb.i kinda want a new bridge pickup because my amp doesn't have that much bass but i don't want to lose tone.one more thing i don't really care about cleans cause i can just use my volume pots to clean it up.
anyways here's what i'm running les paul body guitar(graphite nut with coil split for bridge and neck tone pot) through little combo tube amp.thanks for any feedback

The Screamin' Demon may be a bridge pickup, but it makes a pretty cool neck pickup too. It's an option that may suit you.

Try the Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invader set.

Re: new pups suggestion?

The Duncan SH-8 work great in Mahogany body, as I have it in my Les Paul tuned to Drop B. If you don't care for the clean sound, the Invader are great for the low end. BTW, I position the neck pickup lower than usual because this pickup is really hot.

It comes with 4 conductor, so it can be coil split.
