I have a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. Their Lil 59s are also popular for this. I run my strat through a Mesa Boogie Rectoverb, and that JB Jr handles all levels of gain and volume with ease and grace.

On a side note: most passive pickups are only going to change the tone of that amp so much. If you want a very different tone, you should look more toward the amp than any pickup.

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!
A Seymour Duncan JB is a versatile pickup for single-pickup guitars, but it isn't very tight. A Distortion would certainly be more tight.

I would also recommend a DiMarzio Evolution. A great, tight bridge pickup that makes the treble strings sing.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
maybe one of these: http://www.dimarzio.com/pickups/humbuckers/high-power/d-activator-x-bridge

i have heard good things and i am considering looking into getting one for an RG. just haven't gotten around to it like everything else in the world...
