Does anyone have any suggestions for a pickup i could buy for playing heavy metal? I need one that can be used for both lead and rhythm because my guitar only has 1 slot for pickups.

SEYMOUR :Full Shred, JB, alternative 8, custom 5

Dimarzio: super distortion, crunchlab, d activator, Evo

EMG: 85

if it is a single slot i'd say pay a bit extra and get a bareknuckle, being in the UK means the most favorable price too

I know how good the EMG is, having used it before, but i havent used any of the seymour duncans or dimarzios listed. I'll have to check 'em out

you want a pup that's fat enough for leads, but tight enough for rhythm imo, i have an RG with a single SD blackout in it, the only thing it can't do too well are cleans. Rhythm is tight, lead is ok. I have the alternative 8 in my strat and it kicks ass and is very versatile, fat leads, but tight miderangey rhythm. Cleans are aggressive but don't break up in the way a ceramic humbucker would.
