anyone have an idea what kind of tone this might get


I don't think pickups have as much to do with the type of tone you can achieve (metal, blues) as your amp and pedals.

what do you mean by texture?

EDIT: If you want to achieve a certain type of tone, changing your pickups isn't the way to go. The effects of a pickup upgrade are a lot more subtle than a new pedal or amp: your tone is warmer, more responsive to your playing, more defined, etc. They give it characteristics that come through regardless of the amount of distortion or your EQ. However, if you wanted to go from metal to blues, changing pickups isn't the fastest or best way of getting you there.

Also, you don't necessarily need high output pickups to play metal. Most of your distortion comes from your pedals and amp doesn't it?

tl;dr Before you change your pickups, get a new amp or get some new pedals.
