Hello everyone. I will be buying a Jvm this week. I currently have an epi-zakk wylde sig, with EMG-Hzs and I want a set of pups that will bring the Jvm to its feet. With Amazing cleans and a nice mid-distorted sound a la Randy Rhoads Metallica. No mushy pickups preferably passive. Thanks everyone.

I have Duncans and love em - Screamin Demon in the Bridge, and a Jazz in the neck, great combo I think. I can go from shimmering cleans to ear blistering distortion - very versatile

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Bareknuckles Warpigs will do the job and then some. Great pairing with the 401 but if they are a bit too hot, Irongear Hot Slag could give a sweeter tone.

dimarzio fred is a nice bridge pickup.

and a Dimarzio PAF pro will give you some versatility, but still keep things hot.

It's a good combo, my dad's got them in his b.c. rich eagle. Dimarzios are typically less than duncans and can sound just as good

i'm a HUGE fan of the Dimarzio Super Distortion, and i'd be crazy not to suggest it for Randy Rhoads, since he used one. definitely a great sound in a LP.

i'll also be trying the JB/Jazz combo for my next guitar. i've never owned Seymour Duncan pickups before, so i'll be excited to try them, but i've heard great things about them as well.
