Hai thar, I know I'm normally here replying to threads more than actually making them, but I'd like to ask a question about my Schecter.

I grow weary of the SD Blackouts on it, they're okay but I'm really just not much of an active pickup guy. I already decided on a DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge, but I'm pretty clueless about the neck.

For those that don't know already I do metal, blues and rock (Mostly do blues and rock on my JEM though), and my budget is $100, I'll go a little over it if necessary but no more than $110-120.

If you want something fat, warm, dynamic and with enough heft to balance with a heavyweight like the Super Distortion then a Breed is an excellent choice.

breed sounds like a good choice, have you used the pickup selector on dimarzio's website?

edit: actually of your not happy with your amp maybe you should keep that money for a new one. if your amp isnt to your liking pickups are just a waste of money.

^That. The Breed is a great pickup.

By the way, I noticed in your sig (As I was looking at what amp you used), that you want your Marshall Haze to 'Burn'? Why? I thought they were good...

They're not good, I was a little over-exaggerative at first with their bad quality but it's really not bad for 1000 USD.

At the other guy, I have not used DiMarzio's pickup selector, I'll look in to it, that and this Breed that everyone is mentioning (Never heard of it to be honest).

I have a SD Jazz in my neck position. Incredible pickup IMO. Very good for all three genres that you play especially blues. I get an incredible blues tone that I can't get with playing my Les Paul on the same amp setting. I love my Jackson too; great guitar that can play anything and sound epic.

Edit: The SD Jazz will play Metal, Rock, and Blues great. It really has an amazing blues and Rock tone though. Imagine Jimmy Page solo tone awesome.

^That's what I bought. No combos or half-stacks.

I was thinking of going SD but I wasn't sure of what I wanted, the SD sounds amazing if it can get a good Jimmy Page tone.

IMO the breed sounds better than the Jazz. The jazz always felt a little weak to me on both clean and dirty compared to the Paf pro, Paf Joe and even the breed neck

Those are my suggestions. The air norton is also a nice clean pickup, that can produce some nice lead tones from blues-steve vai stuff
I traded in my Real Books for Robbins and Cotran Pathology Textbooks

The Breed responds well to picking dynamics and can sound quite refined, but it can hit like a sledgehammer if you attack the strings.

If you want a good Page tone then the Duncan is going to do it for you much better than any Dimarzio will. Though you might want something like a Seth Lover with an A5, which is a fair bit brighter than the Antiquity.

Another good option that people like for Page tone are Duncan '59s, and you might want to look at Wolfetone Marshallheads.
