New pups for a mahogany RG2020x

I just bought an Ibanez RG2020x. I like the tone of the v-8 and v-7 pups, but they aren't hot enough for me. I would really like to go with some duncans. but i'm thinking Dimarzio air norton for neck. I would like to go with a PATB-2 parallel axis distortion for the bridge. I have a duncan custom in my rg320 and like it.

IF you want hot, then the Dimarzio Steve Special and Evolution are good.Those are both ver hot pups.

The Duncan custom is fairly hot but the paralell axis distortion is a beast. The Duncan distortion also has alot of balls

DiMarzio Steve's Special sounds good to me. You might also want to look at a Duncan JB.
