I have an AT-1 in a basswood body RG560 and it sounds incredible. IMO it's one of the best pups Dimarzio has ever made.

You're best off posting in the actual pickups subforum, and using the template for asking the question. There are a lot more factors at stake to determine what may work for you.

Nortons. Air for the neck, the regular for the bridge. Unless you want downtuned cookie monster music style, then EMGs IMHO.
