DiMarzio/Ibz Pickup-Sound

I got my RG 2620 Prestige today.
I have been convinced that I'd change the pickups as soon as the guitar arrives.
But I tested it and was suprised - the sound wasn't as bad as expected.
I think the DiMarzio/Ibz's sound a little bit like the PAF Pro's. They are middle-output-Pickups with a clear sound having lots of harmonics. They are typical rocksound -PU's and completely different than Breeds, Evos,...
What do you think of the DiMarzio/Ibz?

Re: DiMarzio/Ibz Pickup-Sound

Yeah, I definitely like the sound of the Dimarzio/IBZ pickups more so than the V7/V8 pickups. The only thing is that they are a little too low output for my personal tastes but they should still have some decent resale value on the 'bay if you decide that you want to get rid of them.
