Hi there fellow rockers!
I own a Ibanez Sas36FMTL with AHS1 (S) neck pu, AHS2 (S) mid pu, True Duo Bucker (H) bridge pu.
I play some power metal, hard rock and ordinary metal and I wonder if you guys could tell me some tips for pickups?
I'm prepared to pay up to 300 dollars!

Thank you in advance!

EMG 81s (for treble pickup) and EMG 85s (for rhythm pickup), they're active pickups, and they cost about $90. For heavy metal, EMGs will suit your every need.

but if he doesn't want to route out the back for actives.. then actives are useless..

i'd suggest maybe a seymour duncan jb bridge/59' neck combo, i dunno what to put in the middle.. also have a look at dimarzio

Okey dokey. Every need. So long as its metal.

If you like EMGs, theres nothing else that sounds like them, but there are far better out there. My guitar with BK crawlers (crawlers! Not even one of the metal pickups) kept up with my ex-bandmates EMGs no problem at all. My warpigs killed his guitars.

Can you get BKs for $300?

Its pretty close.

Get bks. In fact, get a set of holy divers.
Quote by Shakespeare
The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, And his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted.
