I have an Ibanez S5470, still with the stock pickups. They sound too thin, though. Too transparent. Especially the neck pickup. The neck pickup has a twang almost like a single coil, but I want a warm, smooth tone. No twang. The bridge pickup isn't as disappointing, but again, a bit too twangy.

I'm running straight into my Peavey 5150, no pedals. I play various types of rock, but my band plays more 80's-oriented thrash. My amp has no problem sounding how I need it to sound, but the pickups are seriously lacking. I'm not too worried about replacing the single coil, since I don't use it too much.

Also, while I want a warmer, thicker sound, I don't want anything muddy. I want to keep it crisp. That's probably more up to the amp, though.

DiMarzio Breed in neck, Super Distortion in the bridge.

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales
