Recommended PU Swap for RG1451 Prestige

Hey everyone. Just wanted to know if anyone recommends a certain type of PU to replace the ones in my RG. The body is Basswood and im more of a rhythm player than lead. Ive been playing alot of trivium lately and i like that sound. With that being said i would like to avoid active pickups. Any suggestions would be grateful.

Cheers
Dean

I'd suggest the D-activator pair for the active sound without the active pickups.

I also think that the Dimarzio Fred is incredibly tight in the bridge position when playing through a really driven amp. Balance it with a PAF Joe in the neck.

Sounds good, and yes you want F-spacing.
