I have a jackson Rhoads, a low-end model, and the bridge pickup is absolute ****. (thought that it would be better if i swapped it with a b.c.rich pup, was horribly wrong.)

I guess I should post what I'm looking for:
1.price range is 70-80 bucks
2.i listen to bands such as: buckethead
shinedown
van halen
ozzy
dream theater
velvet revolver
(I also play a lot of their music)
3.I'm kind of aiming towards a seymour JB

what do you guys reccomend?

Pearly Gates is real good. And the Evolution is always a great choice.
I play guitar in a ska band.

DiMarzio. I just ordered a Rockfield Mafia pickup (In BC Rich guitars), but I haven't gotten a chance to install it yet. I'll tell you how it sounds.

The Seymour Duncan JB is a very popular choice. I would listen to some of their audio samples to find out which ones you like. They are located here.

I wouldn't go the JB if that's the kinda stuff you wanna play.
The JB has a very open, midrangey sound. It would be fine, but I'd recommend the Duncan Distortion over it, or the Dimarzio Evolution.

I wouldn't recommend any of the pickups that have been suggested so far.

Best mainstream options for you are probably the Dimarzio Breed or Norton, or the Duncan Custom Custom. They're all versatile, all-round pickups that can cover a variety of styles, given the dodgy wood your guitar is made from the Breed is probably the way to go, it's quite a good choice if you need to compensate for stuff like that.

Invader is gash, all low end, mud and no clarity.
JB is kind of shrill and thin and probably won't like the wood your guitar is made of.
Evolution is an out and out shred pickup, not really aimed at the majority of the stuff you play at all.
Actually called Mark!

They're still the best options, they'll just sound better in better wood
