Need a new pup for my Explorer bridge position. I want an aggressive instrumental rock tone, fat like Satch but able to play heavy rhythms as well. Would an Air Zone work well, who uses one here?

I have an Airzone in my RG2550z and I really like it. I have SD JB's and JB jr's in the bridge in 3 of my other guitars and I do like the JB alot, I also have the PAF 36th in the bridge of one of my RG's and I don't like the Paf 36th as a bridge pup as much as I like the AZ and JB. The AZ is darker than the JB and I think the AZ does better with the in-between tones when you roll off the volume, which I like to do. The AZ is more pleasing to my ear than the ToneZone as well even though the are pretty close...the TZ feels a little bit darker and stronger which seemed less musical to my ears than the AZ. Hard to describe pups sometimes because our tastes in tone are obviously somewhat subjective but I give the Airzone a big thumbs up. hope that helps...
