Which replacements for Dimarzio/Ibz

Hi guys! I have a 2005 RG3120 which comes stock with the Dimarzio/Ibz pickups. However, i find that the tone is lacking in the following areas.

1. not enough bite
2. something with a slightly higher output would be better

Would the Tone zone(b)/ Air norton (n) combo be suitable?
Or is the tz(b) and the paf pro(n) combination better to add more bite and more power to my tone?

Re: Which replacements for Dimarzio/Ibz

was going to ask the same thing re. the same guitar.

i'm planning on just going with the tz/pp combo of the earlier 3120's.

biggest question is what colour scheme. i'm thinking maybe black/creme zebras for that classic look.

I can only say the TZ/AN combo has a lot of bite. You can really get a lot different tones out and it's IMHO suited for a lot of styles.
