This pickup seems to come stock in the washburn X50.. just wondering if anyone knows it's metal capabilities or how well it handles distortion. Would like to go look at one this week, but I want to make sure it's worth the drive.

It has a fair amount of output (resistance whatever) for a passive pup and is probably more geared toward the 'brown' sound but I think you would be happy with it. Is the guitar new or used?
I think it can do it. The "metal potential" lies more in the amp than anything. As long as you have a set of buckers with the right amp you'll be able to do metal.
They also come stock on some Schecter models, which I've played. Will do metal without a problem.
