So Basically, i have an Ibanez RG2550Z that i upgraded with the DiMarzio D-ACtivator X pickups. I am very unhappy with the bridge D-Activator X, but the neck keeps my very happy. The bridge squeals at high volumes even when the pickup is lowered and sealed with shielding tape (aswell as a noise spressor and lowering the amp gain to only 4 or 5.) anyhow, i am after a bridge pickup that will keep my highs and mids tight, without an annoying bass boom or squealing at high volumes. I play fast, technical death metal with many solos. but i also love progressive rock and fusion. I am thinking about getting the DiMarzio D-Sonic. Any opinions, advice ,anything? I have been told that the Seymour duncan JB is another good pickup for tight metal stuff.

I run my guitar through a Ibanez tube screamer, and a boss ns-2 noise sppressor. my amp is a Peavey XXX head with 6L6GC's in it, through a XXX Cab,

and dont suggest EMGS, they are out of the question.

I have a D-sonic in my Ibanez with the blade coil closest to the bridge. Its got a really tight souns to it, very clear. My amp doesn't have nearly as much gain as yours does so I am not sure about the uncontrollable feedback, but I seem to have no trouble with it through my buddies' JCM 2000. Pinch harmonics are very easy to get with the pickup. Apparently it gives off quite a different sound in you have the blade coil away from the bridge, more output/volume and a more open sound.

I have a D Sonic on my Ibanez S520EX and I love it to death. I highly recommend it.

i have a d-sonic in Jackson WRMG it sounds great in both positions but it's sounds like heaven if paired with an Air Norton or an Evolution neck.

Haha it seems putting the D-sonic in Ibanez S's is pretty popular.
