The pickup your looking for is a PAF. About every popular aftermarket pickup maker has them, so searching for one shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
i agree - the paf pro by dimarzio is absolutely LOVELY in the neck - my favourite (with air norton as a second). very versatile. if you pump up the tone, it gives this great sharp, aggressive sound, but its even better when you roll it back - good booming srv-like sound.
I'd say get the Evolution in the bridge chopper in the middle and the evo neck thats what i have and it's pretty good.
Evolution is WAY too aggressive for the versatility he's looking for IMHO... :s
I'd say PAF in the neck and Steve's special in bridge.
I think it fine u just have to mess with the volume and tone knobs and stuff
What does the steve's special sound like cause i was thinkin about gettin one for my talman
very versatile, it's the one Petrucci used in his JPM...
Breed neck in bridge for a warmer, hotter, more bass PAF Pro tone. Very dynamic and responsive.

PAF Joe in neck for well... erm... a sweet PAF Pro tone? :)

I got them both in my S520EX (H-H), so if you want want some sound clips, pm me. :)
paf pro and tone zone setup. versatile without the overbearing bottom of the air norton(which i like) in the neck. tone zone is just super versatile. sounds good for all styles.

I would go with the PAF Pro or PAF Joe, both really nice versatile pickups. I'm really liking my PAF Joe, it's very much like the Pro just a little warmer.
