I've read through a lot of forums discussing the pros and cons between these two pickups but they are all relative to their guitars.

I've using a guitar with a ebony fretboard, mahogany body, a maple neck, and a floyd rose.

I've heard that the Invader is a better rhythm pickup, and it is dark sounding muddy, but I have an invader installed in the bridge of my Ibanez RG with a maple neck, bound basswood fretboard, basswood body with a flamed maple top, (350 dosllar guitar), and I didn't find it muddy sounding, and I like the leads a lot,

but, of course I haven't heard the distortion,

Which pickup would be better for my bridge position, considering my guitar's wood,

And also, which pickup is warmer sounding, hotter even (not necessarily higher output but sounds hotter)? Tighter bass? Better leads? etc

Thanks everyone in advanced for replies!

Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

The Invader doesn't even compare to the Distortion. I'm sure you'll find there's very few fans of the Invader, they are harsh sounding pickups that are just plain bad IMO. Get the Distortion and never look back

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
