Anyone tried a Dean Evo? are they any good?

I'm looking for a new guitar that is a LP style. The Ibanex ART120 looks good as well though any thoughts?

Also while I'm at it - What's your opinion on passive pickups for a Jackson Randy flying V? I'm thinking Dimarzio Activator X but then there's also the SD's SH6 pickups too.

Hey Ibanez - Left hand Xiphos? any chance!!??
