Dimarzio X2N. Opinions?

What do you guys think of this bridge pickup? I know Chuck Schuldiner of Death used this kind of pickup, so I'm thinking about using it for my main metal tone. Anyways, opinions?

the X2N is the most powerful pickup ever made by DiMarzio. it's got 510mv while the Super Distortion's got 425mV and the Evo's got 405mv i guess.

it's a bit trebly for my tastes, odd enough for a DiMarzio, but if you need it mainly for metal, then it's ok. but dont expect it to deliver nice glassy cleans, unless you split it.

Thanks. I usually use a neck pickup for my clean glassy tones anyways. I think I'm gonna go for it.

Will the dimarzio fit into the cavity where my duncan design currently is without needing any modifications?

Awesome, then a X2N it is, or possibly a SD JB. Thanks.
