Pickup selection help?

Hi all, I have a project i am building up which has a HS pickup config. I have a vintage Ibanez v-2 bridge pup that came out of my 1980 destroyer. I was thinking of matching it with either a Dimarzio hs3 or a pro track in the neck?

Any advice would be good

Can't really give advice if we don't know what you're after.

Which dimarzio would be a better match to go with the vintage v2?

What sort of music do you want to play, amp, guitars specs, etc? We don't know what to recommend if we don't know this.

Re: Pickup selection help?

I play mostly heavy metal and all things related. I have two amps one peavey jsx with a 5150 cab and a peavey bandit.I don't really use to many pedals but if i do its a maxon od9 pro plus and a modded SEM boss ds1.

I think with this guitar i will try and keep the wiring simple, I had either a George lynch setup in mind or just 1vol and a 3way switch.

I have used both pro track and hs4 and either way i wont mind which one goes in, i just would like to know which would be more of a match regarding output?

My multimeter is broken so i cant measure the resistance of the v-2 atm. Does anyone know what it would be around?

Ditch the stock pickup and drop in a Tone Zone and single-sized Air Norton.
