    Hello -

    I'm actually doing something similar - getting a guitar with only one humbucker trying to get the same tones you're looking for. I have decided to go with the duncan distortion. I have one already in my ibanez rg550 (basswood body/maple neck) and it just kills in that guitar. I use it for all my rhythm and lead sounds. The only thing i would say is that it is weak in the clean department, not exactly what i want for clean sounds - too thin sounding.

    I'm guessing you're gonna get reccomendations for the JB, Custom, Invader, and EMG 81 just for a few to start with.

    Those pickups I mentioned are all good, but don't rule out Gibson or Dimarzio pickups in your pursuit for the right one.
