New RG1560! Pickup options?

I ended up trading my Premium for a new RG1560 today and it's my first maple fingerboard and HSS guitar. Not being a fan of the S and V series pickups, I want to give it the DiMarzio overhaul. I generally like crunch, heat and bite from the bridge and warm cleanliness from the neck. I'm thinking a strat like sparkle for the middle. Any suggestions?

Re: New RG1560! Pickup options?

I just got the same guitar and is also my first HSS guitar. I am going to put a duncan distortion in the bridge (waiting for it in the mail) and i have a dimarzio air norton s laying around that i am going to use for the neck. We'll se how it sounds; hopefully the distortion pu comes in the mail by saturday....

Yeah--go to the pickups and wiring forum, read the sticky about "Please read before posting pickup question," then start a thread there with the info we need. It's good to know what guitar you have and an idea of the tone you're after, but we need to know a little more...

As normal, thanks Bat

Glad to see we are moving on RG and I hope you're happy with the swap!
