I have been looking all over for them but cant seem to find one, everytime i type it into guitarcenters website it sends me to the one for 7 string guitars but i can never find any for 6 string guitars. If you know a website where they still sell it can you please tell me.

they are both passive. actives require a battery so you'd have to do a bit of modification to the guitar. i believe you'd need new pots as well but not 100% sure on that one

That's correct with replacing the pots. You'd also need a stero jack. But all the active pickup talk is irrelevant since the ones in question are passive.

Yes they exist, yes they're passive, and yes they sound awesome- I have a D-sonic in one of my guitars. That being said, I prefer the Crunch Lab, but each to his own. That is also passive.

I've got a D-sonic in my Les Paul, bridge position. Great sounding pickup! I get a nice, tight Lamb of God tone out of mine. Supposedly the newer Crunch Lab sounds very similar -- the guy I bought my D-Sonic from said he actually preferred it over the CL. I guess you'd have to try both...

Yeah, AILD is just easy listening compared to LoG

What specific model Ibanez is it?

I can't speak for how it would sound through basswood; as mine is in a solid chunk of mahogany (Les Paul).

As for those other bands vs. Lamb of God; I don't really consider them to be "softer" but they definitely have a different tone.

The D Sonic will work for all of them; but I think it leans more toward Lamb of God's tight, precise, and not overly fuzzy tone. It's hard to describe. But through my 6505+, when I play Lamb of God riffs with my Les Paul, it sounds pretty damn close to their tone on As the Palaces Burn and Ashes of the Wake. And I'm not even using the same amp they used by a long shot.

With my SD Blackout equipped guitar it does not sound like them at all -- it's got more edge and gain; more appropriate for those other bands you mentioned as well as the death and black metal stuff I play.

Most Dimarzios I've tried sound very nice in Basswood body guitars. I'd recommed the Crunch Lab over it as well.
