Lightbulb Pickup choise.. getting lost...

Hey guys!

Finally I have the financial conditions to change my Ibanez S Pickups!
It's a 22 frets '98 ibanez S with maple top...
It sounds one dimensional and thin, I need a bridge pickup that gives me the depth I need but at the same time tight and articulated with high gain.

Until now I'm considering the TZ, the JB, and the alternative 8... any Idea?

When I had my S540LTD, I put a FRED in the bridge and a PAF Pro in the neck, I Loved it!

Dominions for sure. They are extremely tight and articulate. Best way to go.

Re: Pickup choise.. getting lost...

I already knew that the crunchlab is a very good option, plus I love it but it's a little too expensive, I won't buy it unless I find it a little cheaper...

I like the Fred, but I want something different for this guitar..

the dominions.. I've heard very good things about their clarity, articulation and fast attack, but are they enough deep in the low mids or they are simply mid-punchy ceramics pickups?

I think I should look in the low mids to make my sound a little deeper and less one dimensional, the dominions can do that?
