Middle PU to go with Gravity Storm bridge and neck

Hi,

As per my other thread, I'm going to grab a Gravity Storm set to try in my RG1XXV.

I want to replace the middle as well. It's currently the stock IBZ. I have it lowered a bit to prevent pick collisions, but it is VERY noticably low output when used... my JEM7V has a similar height setup but the volume is louder.

Essentially, I want a middle PU that will work with the Gravity Storms, to give the typical strat-esque sounds when used in position 3, and the combo-sounds in positions 2 and 4.

DiMarzio please, as I'll be getting all these in pink, for matching purposes!

Injector neck perhaps? That'll be high output enough, and fairly stratty without the hum.

From a bit of searching round - yeah, sounds like a good possibility! 'Strat-esque' but hum-cancelling, and high output so as not to drop right down in volume when deployed.

Thanks for the recommendation. Any others?!

I should note I want it to have the pole pieces too. Purely for aesthetic reasons. Hence the 'Fast Track' pickup would not be ideal for me due to it having the bars instead...
