Question Ibanez RG870qmz Premium trade in for Schecter ATX Solo 6???

I have an Ibanez Premium RG and it's a great guitar but not as good as I thought it is. When I bought it I've put Dimazio Crunch Lab in it but the guitar simply didn't deliver the amount of grit and tightness that I prefer for deep down-tuned death metal, I found it kinda sterile and muddy in comparison to my other guitars. Tried it all, EQ, pickup height, different strings, tweaking....

To cut it short, I have an offer to trade it in for Schecter Blackjack ATX Solo 6 and I need your help and opinions! Is it worth it? Thanks!

Change the bridge pickup to a Dominion bridge. That'll give you exactly what you want.

Thanks man, I've chosen Crunch Lab because of all the hype (what a mistake) when instead I should have gone with D Activator or such. CL simply seems shallow, and lifeless for what I need. Pretty nice for leads but terrible for down-tuned ballzy crunch

I just wanted to know more about Schecters ATX series and I care only about the SOUND, appearance is secondary...
