I want to play hardrock/metal. what do you recomend?
What styles of rock & metal? What kind of budget per pickup?
The stock ones are fairly hot to be honest, though I chucked some EMGs in my V100 and it's a beast though they're a bit sterile
Grunge music / Heavy Metal.
Without getting silly expensive, I'd look at Lace Alumitone Deathbuckers and their signature HBs (all for metal guitarists), Tesla humbuckers, and RailHammer Chisel or Anvil pickups.
