EMG´s are probably the best choice for this tuning !

yeah, EMG's have a wider frequency range than most standard pickups and they are really tight with high gain. So they really kick ass for lower tuned guitars and high gain articulation.

I would also agree that EMGs are the way to go. I've actually gotten to a point where I can't stand using any pickups BUT EMGs simply because I've gotten use to the clarity and power that they provide even when downtuned.
