SUP. I've got a schecter omen 7 diamond series guitar. I'm about to get a POD HD500 in the mail soon and I'm worried that the pickups on this guitar are too shitty to achieve the tone I want. I want a (Dare i say it) Djent tone. Tight chugging ability and clarity in complex chords. I know you guys are going to say that 90% of a djent tone is in the hands and yes I agree with you, but there's no way to achieve pristine clarity in a chord by strumming differently when your tone sounds muddy. I'm working with a pretty flexible budget so feel free to suggest top of the line things, bonus points if someone can recommend me a fairly cheap set of pickups that would get the job done.

Thanks in advance.

I would just get yourself a set of D Activator 7s and save yourself some cash.

On the BKPs, the Aftermath and Painkiller pickups are usually the go-to choice for the "djent" tone: usually described as tight and "dry" sounding with lots of mids. A lot of their modern (and even vintage hot) models have been used for it though, so might be worth sending them an email/checking the forums if you're interested. People are always happy to help.

Thanks everyone, I've been to bareknuckle.co.uk before. Those we're going to be my last resort as I'm kind of impatient with these sort of things haha, I'll check out those D-Activator 7's.
