What are the fattest, beefiest and biggest sounding bridge pickup on the market? Preferably high output... What do you think? Nice distortion sound preferably, as i'll likely use the neck pickup for most my cleans.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

Rockmonkey Son Of Beast is easily one of the hottest.
But what exactly are you looking for? Your very non-specific here. Are we talking PAFs? Metal? Hard rock? What exactly are you going to be playing?

In terms of output, Bare Knuckle Warpig, EMG 81, RockMonkey SOB, Kent Armstrong's custom for a Hufschmid guitar, DiMarzio X2N and SD Livewires Metal are probably the highest output pickups I know

Kent Armstrong Motherbucker, definitely. It's two Hot Rails type pickups wired together - four coils. But that also means it isn't that responsive. Remember, the ''bigger'' a pickup gets, the less responsive it is. It will get much muddier, generally your tone will degrade into a complely inaudible mess. When it comes to choosing pickups, it's not a ogod idea to just go after one thing. If you do, that almost always means you're getting rid of everything else. Want the most output? You'll lose dynamics. Want the least output? You'll lose range. Want the best clarity? You'll lose bass. Want the brightest tone? You'll lose mids. Want the thickest tone? You'll lose treble.

Of course, then there's active pickups which are an entirely different story. But those are very much a specialist tool - don't get them unless you already know you need them. As far as passives go, find the right balance. Bear in mind that output only matters if you're using specific types of amp, setting them up in specific ways and playing a certain way. Lots and lots of people get high-output pickups when actually, their play style, amp model or just hwo they have their rig set up means the output is going to waste and they're just getting a less responsive tone for no good reason.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Dimarzio Breed is one of the fattest sounding pickups around, really thick midrange.
Actually called Mark!

I do, but if it's fat and warm you're looking for then they tick all the boxes.
