Got a buddy with a Charvel model 5 who hates the way it sounds with the stock pickups (Jackson or EMG, I forget). This is the two humbucker model. Anyone familiar with these guitars and what pickups would give him a great classic metal sound like Scorpions, Maiden, Priest....that kind of drive? They don't have to be Duncan, which is MY preferred pickup. I'm not familiar with what type of woods or anything with this guitar. It is a neck through as well.
