Re: RG550EX...pickups for fusion rock?
^yeppers. Good pickups are pretty much the icing on the cake, with a good amp being the cake. I can't see anyone with a good amp settling for crappy pickups, but if you MUST choose, I'd get a good amp before pickups.
That being said, if you like your amp- i'd look into the swineshead warthog or runaway for the bridge, and runaway or condor for the neck. EDIT: email swineshead to be sure, if you decide to go with them.
For bareknuckle, I'm not so sure, to be honest- if you do decide to go with them, i'd email them to see what they say.
I haven't tried the air zone, unfortunately.
