D-sonic/fast track or chopper/air norton would be my choice.

Definitely go for DiMarzio though,they're practically made for Ibanez guitars.

Dimarzio Super Distortion for the bridge and a PAF Pro or Humbucker From Hell for the Neck. I have the SD and HFH setup in my Gibson and it screams. For the middle go for a 61 like Pac said or a Blue Velvet.

Dimarzio Super Distortion for the bridge


somebody said "super distortion" so i'm contractually obligated to agree not really, but MAN is that an awesome pickup. doesn't get nearly as much love as it deserves. i'd recommend it 100% unless you're looking for a more traditional vai-ish tone from your guitar.

and above all else i would recommend dimarzios for an ibanez. they're practically made for each other (there's a reason so many dimarzio endorsed players use ibanez and so many ibanez guitars come stock with dimarzios). check out www.jemsite.com for some good pickup combos. those people know their ibanez's (obviously)

X2N + Tone Zone is a good combo in my Dellinger, but what's your budget? If it's big enough you might be able to look at some 'pricier' brands but not necessarily.

Damn, when I saw this I thought you got a fully equipped rg570 for $100. I was gonna be like damn that lucky bastard.

Go for some Dimarzios. Super distortion in the bridge and I don't know for the rest. I have a dimarzio breed in mine right now and it's O.K. Not the best sounding pup for what I'm playing, but it's an alright pickup.

I'm planning on changing it to a super distortion.

I personally prefer the Super3 for hard rock and Metal if you can find one that is, I think its discontinued now. I had a Super1 in my ESP and swapped for Super3 and havn't looked back. Clarity,output, big bottom end and a nice mid hump to help cut through, it is too much for cleans if you don't roll off the vol and tone but for distorted mayhem I'm yet to find a pickup I like more.

area 61 or 63 is much better than a yjm. the yjm is too weak powered, not single coily sounding. its articulate though

most people will switch the pickups anyway, so that's a pretty awesome deal if you ask me. up to you what you replace it with, depends on what country you're in and what tones you want, too (hard rock and metal is a bit vague).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
