Need new pickups

I have an ibanez rg series with standard v7 and v8 pickups and I absolutely hate them. I wanted to know what types of pickups I should buy if i'm looking for more of a classic rock sound.

Re: Need new pickups

Super Distortions and Gibson 500Ts are my fave. 2 good choices for standard to heavy rock

Re: Need new pickups

What is your amp?

With classic rock I find the amp more important than the guitar you use.
