replacement for ibanez rg1570

hey everyone. Im refinishing my guitar and also want to get new pickups for it. It has a basswood body, maple neck w/ rosewood fretboard, edge pro and the pu's are direct mounted. i find the stock v8 and v7 pickups to sound pretty flat and boring in this guitar through any rig ive played through. Right now i have a rocktron pro gap and mosvalve poweramp and using my marshall mg100dfx's speaker since i dont have a cab at the moment. I want something more articulate and powerful, with better harmonic content but also have nice tight lows. Im looking for a more classic heavy metal to thrash metal tone, but could also handle low tunings if i ever decide to use it for that. i really like judas priests live tone lately along with eric peterson of testaments tone so i have been thinking an emg 81 and 85 combo with the 18v mod but i want to see if there's any passive pups you would recommend as emgs can be a bit pricey and im not too sure if they are really what i want.

The 81 - SA - 89 with 18 volt mod is an awesome combo. Buy some of the pickups used and you'll save a bunch.

DiMarzio Dominion bridge and neck are also awesome. I have a guitar with the same combo of woods/bridge and they are brilliant.

Also check out the Railhammer Chisel set, brilliant tight lows, heavy and articulate.

The only passive pickups which came close to the emg's are BN warpigs. As expensive as the EMG's though. With the emgs i prefer the 81 and a 60 in the neck. The EMG solder less system is very nice too.


Also have a look at the Duncan Blackouts.
