Need a pickup that sounds like the Hot Grinder 2

I love the tone of my S5470 which has Ibanez' proprietary Hot Grinder 2 in the bridge, and I wanted to buy a bridge pickup to put in my RG so that it sounds like that. I've heard on some online forums the HG2 is meant to be based on a Dimarzio D Activator, but there's not really that much info out there because Ibanez seem to be so secretive with the specs of a lot of their propriety stuff.

Anyone know of any pickups that are similar in sound to the HG2?

Any help would be appreciated,
