High gain PUPs

Hi guys,I am new here so please be gentle

I am looking for a new bridge pick up for my Ibanez sabre prestige FW207520, I already own a S470 with a Dimarzio D sonic in the bridge and love its aggression and general tonality, its my main gigging guitar.The prestige however fitted with stock dimarzio/IBZ pups has a more generic rock tone which is lovely but I play groove orientated metal.

If I like the D sonic so much why dont I just buy another of them? well I dont want 2 sabre's that sound almost identical its really as simple as that.

Tone wise I am after burn my eyes era machine head.

I have narrowed my choice of pups down to the following any advice on response tone etc... in a solid body mahogany guitar would be excellent.

DiMarzio - X2N or D Activator-X

Seymour Duncan - Invader or Distortion

or Bare Knuckle pickups Warpig or Aftermath

So they are the 6 pups I have managed to narrow my search down to,as I say I play aggressive groove metal and like the tone of early MachineHead.

any help would be great.

Cheers Craig

Re: High gain PUPs

Although I've never tried them, a few peeps here would recommend the Dimarzio Dominions as a solid candidate.
