Hey guys, long time crawler and first time poster.

So I recently got tired of doing my shreds and lead chops on my Gibson LP, dont get me wrong the thing is awesome and I use it for blueswork and classic rock but Im in a Power/Heavy metal band so I was looking for something a bit more eazy reach on higher frets and more slender neck.
So this summer I see a Washburn in my local music store and I really fall in love with the thing, and I buy it for myself as a b-day present.

The model is WM 24V and it has Randall UL neck & Ultra XL bridge pickups, but I have always wanted to try out Duncans but I have no idea where to start my search for wich pickups I should get, any help would be appreciated (Specs you can see http://www.washburn.com/electrics/hm-series/#wm526 here)

Thanks

I use a Randall RG75G3Plus ( http://www.randallamplifiers.com/Amplifiers/G3-Plus-Amps/#rg200dg3plus at the bottom) when practicing with the band, a Marshall MG50DFX (http://www.marshallamps.com/product.asp?productId=37) for home use.

For live shows I usually get loaner stacks since I dont have one myself, either Randall or Mesa Boogie but since they aint mine I cant really remember the type atm :/

I'd recommend some of their higher output picks like the SH-6 Distortion, if you're into metal.

How do you like that Washburn model? I'm not a big fan of a Floyd Rose, so I've been looking at the standard WM24, which is very similar.

Im likeing it alot, never had a Floyd Rose axe before so Im learning some new stuff, wich is always fun, but yeah, ideal neck for me, great fret access, holds tune really well, the body is light, sounds good in most amps, good balance(head not heavier than the body or otherway 'round).
