Its one of the crappy RG4EXFM1's. I play some of everything, mostly older stuff, like metallica, Ozzy, Zeppelin and that kind of stuff. Im using this guitar for metal mostly so it would be better for the pickups to have a heavier sound.

I'd go with the Super Distortion/PAF Pro combo. Lots of old school metal/hard rock bands used the Super D, so that should get you what you're after. JB is good too, but I personally find the Jazz to be severely lacking if you're gonna be playing distorted leads on your neck pickup at all. It's great for cleans though.

PRS tremonti treble pickups are about as high output as they go without sounding like mud. I shouldn't even be telling you this (secret weapon #4).
