Anyone use Bill Lawrence pickups?

Seems 90% of Ibanez owners use Dimarzio. I don't know if that is because of the status quo or what, but I want to replace the pickups in my prestige rg2820. I had heard great things about Bill Lawrence but have not read anything about BL's on Ibanez's.

I'm a huge fan of the Lawrence 500XL it sounds fantastic in the bridge position of 1,A patrick Eggle,2,A gibson LP,3,an Ibanez rg560

If you go that route i'm sure you won't be dissapointed

I have BL-280s in my strat. They sound great. Also, the 500-L in my washburn N4 sound unique (not great but somehow cool). Never tried putting BL pups on IBZ though. One thing I noticed from BL pups is that they are very quiet.

I also had a 500L in my Washburn N4, and I was less than impressed with it. I have Bartolinis in my RG550, and wouldn't swap them with anything. They are very expensive new, but I got my mine used for about 40 bucks apiece. Just awesome sounding.

Had them in a N2 and 560. Not really impressive for a replacement pickup, factory maybe.

For the money, a Duncan or Dimarzio is the way to go.
