Re: DiMarzio Drop Sonic, Paf Pro or Super Distortion
PAF Pro is a great ALL round pickup. Does everything nicely-nicely, and growls when you need it too. It's also great as a reference pickup, when you want to replace stocks, but aren't sure what you want, so you can stick one in, know it'll good, then tweak your choice from that one. Need more, top, use this, more bass, use that, just right? leave it in, etc.
Check out the new Dominions. haven't heard 'em myself, but like the look of the specs for what you're after. Failing that, It sounds like you're in need of a Tone Zone. Loads going on with that pickup, as long as you KNOW your amp very well. (It's a really responsive pickup to cutting frequencies for the tone you need - if it's there and you don't want it, you can dial it out, but if it isn't there and you NEED it, it's very hard to dial in)
