Ibanez RG8L

Hey everybody. Been a while since I have been on here. Recently my wife bought me a lefty Ibanez 8 string for my birthday (I am a lucky man). Anyway , I am looking to modify it quite a bit. I am looking to change the pickups and I think I want passive pickups, and I am curious about any feedback from members on what they like. Also, I plan to change the bridge , and I have looked at both the hipshot (not sure if it needs any routing or modifications) , the kahler (also not sure what mods would be needed) , and the schaller hannes bridge, which I can not find for sale in the us, at least searching online. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks everyone

Re: Ibanez RG8L

The DiMarzio D-Activator 8's are awesome.

As for the bridge, I'd just change the saddles. Replacing the entire thing would be useless.
