Re: which pickups for the rg548????
EMGs are great pickups for metal, but IMO they aren't very versatile and can't handle very many other genres of music. An EVO will give you quite a distinct metal tone but can sound a bit sterile at times. Personally, I prefer the Tone Zone just because it's a pretty versatile bridge pickup and it matches well with a PAF Pro, Air Norton, or even an Air Zone in the neck.
