So I just got a jackson dk2 used off of ebay. It is one the old school models with the duncan designed in it. I'm trying to figure out a good pickup configuration for it. I play a mixture of metal, AIC style grunge, and sometimes throw in a good mellow classic rock style. My ATX c-7 covers most of the really heavy stuff, but I need something that can go from mellow to extremely heavy like nothing, or just mellow, and while I play mostly rhythm, something solid for leads

Go a seymour Duncan JB and 59 combo. That should do most of what your after

So basically, I think anyways, what is in the new models...lol
If my memory serves me right, the DK-2 is made of Alder, which is a bright sounding tonewood. The JB is a pickup that puts it's weight on the higher frequencies. Therefore, many have said of the combination of alder and a JB that it's too bright, and that the JB would better serve in a mahogany guitar. Don't get me wrong, though, the JB is a killer pup, and of course, it's all about what you like yourself.
