I just picked up a 1990 RG550 with an air norton in the neck and an Evo in the bridge...

would you
A) keep it like this..
B) swap in an EMG set 85 SA 85

I would keep the dimarzio's, but i'm more into progressive metal over the "brutal" crap being pumped out that people seem to love today

Ibanez RG7621
Ibanez RG121

depends on what style of music you wanna play. the emg's would be great for metal but i personally love both of those pickups, they have a lot of character to them.

When it comes to practicing, I would spend about 63 hours a day
the emgs do metal. and the air norton and evo do... metal (and are a bit better in other genres).

middle try a dimarzio area '61, true velvet or red velvet... something like that
Pedal GAS?
Empress Heavy
ISP Dec of some sort

I'd probably swap the Evo for a Tone Zone or D-Sonic but that's just me.

d sonic is my other 2c. but theres nothing actually wrong with the evo. its just more trouble for you to change it imo
