Please Recommend new PU's for my RG.
I am currently redoing my 1997 Ibanez RG570- currently has stock pickups, wizard neck, edge trem. I am refinishing the guitar, placing a black RG550/JEM pickgaurd, replacing any worn out parts, and lastly swapping out the bridge pickup. This is what I want: a warm, midrangy sound, much like the 498 in my Gibson SG, but with screaming harmonics and improved clarity. The stock Ibanez V8 does not cut it- the sound I am hearing in my head is Van Halen's tone on 1984, with the ability to handle a high saturation amp, yet it cleans up nicely. I play alot of classic hard rock (AC/DC, Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen), but I enjoy more modern sounds like Metallica, Zakk Wylde, Joe Satriani, Dream Theater, etc.
Basically what I want: warmth, clarity, sustain, harmonics, and handles clean tones nicely. Versitility.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
