Would anyone happen to know the best possible replacement for the middle pickup on my '89 UCMD RG? The guy I bought it from not only mashed her up quite well, but he removed the stock center pickup and I was wondering if anyone has any information about getting it replaced?
All I found so far is that the original pickup model was a DiMarzio VS-1 (http://www.jemsite.com/articles-menu/usa-custom-specs-ucmd-metaldesign/). What DiMarzio/Ibanez pickup has the closest characteristics to the VS-1? Any help finding a suitable replacement would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Alex

If you are doing split coil and like the 2 and 4 position, consider just the good old standard Fender Strat pickup. Get specifically the middle pickup that is reverse winded to get hum cancelling when you split the neck and put in combine position. I did it like this on my Strat and liking it.
