help a mo fo out with new pick up choice

hi all, i need a new humbucker for my 1980 saber, the original one thats on it is a bit pants, the pole pieces dont line up anywhere near the top e and the bottom e, i read that they make an f design pickup to cope with floyed rose trems, been looking at the dimarzio fred, anyone recomend them? lokking for more top end out of the guitar, i will probably change the middle and neck pick up as well, they are single coil but seem week, and when i higher the pickup i get nasty overtones and intonation issues, i mostly play classic rock sort of stuff in the band, but would like a versitlile sound for recording, sorry for the essay
cheers lee

Re: help a mo fo out with new pick up choice

Pickup's are one of those thing's that might sound great to one,but terrible to another.Then you have to decide passive or active?Youtube is a great tool for answers to your question too!Of my collection of guitars im pretty partial to the tone from my Ibanez EX3700 which has a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge.I play christian rock and metal,and this is a very good pickup with a wide range of tonal options.Other pickup options would be Dimarzio joe and fred,Emg Hz,or Bill Lawrance XL500L.Most of these come F spaced,and the XL500L is a blade style and works great in anything.Hope this helps!
