Who has EVOs in their RG1570 (or other basswood Ibanez)?

I am assuming I will want to change out the pickups on my RG1570L when I get it. Does anyone have EVOs in their RG1570 or any other similar basswood Ibanez that can give me some idea of the sound they get from them? Did you also change out the single coil? If so, with what? I know there is a ton of talk on Jemsite about pickup choices but I searched for a while and couldn't find anything specific for what I need to know. I play mostly metal (Slayer, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Suffocation) so they need to handle a lot of distortion well, while still being able to clean up nicely.

Any other pickup ideas? I already have a guitar with EMGs so I'd like to get something different for this guitar.

I have Evo2 bridge and Evo Neck in my 1570...
I like Evo 2 because it cleans up better than standard Evo......Evo Bridge has the everything on 11 sound with a boosted upper mid that can sometimes be alil much. The Evo2 has the same basic tone just smoother and less in your face 24/7

I have an EVO in the bridge and neck of my RG421.

The bridge pickup sounds a bit harsh, but totally usable, just not as versatile as a Breed (e.g. In order to play clean with the bridge EVO I need to roll back the volume).
