Basically, as a (hopefully) much clearer form of my previous thread: If I was to buy an RG1570 (or better), what pickups should I install.
I want it capable of all 'metals' (but with a primary focus on the melodic death end of the spectrum instead of the baggy pants and backwards caps end), but also clean passages and maybe rock if I roll off the gain (if that's not asking too much). I already have a JB/59 combo and a Tone Zone/PAF Pro guitar and also this guitar would be drop-tuned, so I want something more extreme, but not so far gone it can't do anything else (or standard tuning).
The body would be Basswood and I'm intrigued by the John Petrucci Dimarzios (Crunch Lab and LiquiFire) and also the Dimebucker or Invader, but want suggestions.
Also the configuration is HSH, so maybe a clean single in the middle? or keep it stock?
What do you think?
