Hey guys,

So I just bought myself an Ibanez RG321MH Guitar, but i'm looking to put some good pickups in it. Don't laugh about the guitar, i got it for dirt cheap.

I've been looking at an EMG 81/85 Setup, that's what the guys in Between the Buried and Me use, and that's the kind of stuff i play.

I've also heard great things bout Seymour Duncan Blackouts though.

I need some suggestions. Some bands with the tone i'm looking for are Veil of Maya, The Faceless, August Burns red, BTBAM, etc.

I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

EMG's in anything but mahogany man, otherwise the blackouts blow chunks of fail everywhere.

Hold up, look into passive pickups first.

EMG's are okay and all.
But there's better pickups honestly.

Check out some Dimarzios
Here's one that'll do you fine
