Hey everyone,

I'm currently using EMG 81/85 pickups in my guitar, but I'm interested in Blackouts. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the difference is between the AHB-1, the AHB-2 and the AHB-3. I play an Ibanez RGA32 through a Bugera 6262 halfstack and I play in drop A#. I use a Bad Monkey OD as a boost. I'm looking for a really tight bottom end suitable for extremely heavy breakdowns/chugs. My tone is comparable to Bring Me The Horizon's Suicide Season album, but I really want to emphasize the low A# on my guitar. I like my EMGs, but so many people say blackouts are better, I just want to know which one would best suit me. I also like playing cleans and leads with my neck pickup. I like warmer cleans, but they're not as important as my lead tone. What neck/bridge combination would you suggest for an extremely tight, heavy rhythm tone and a smooth lead tone?
