I picked up an Ibanez RG321MH with the an Mahogany body and maple neck that I want to do some changes on. As it sits the guitar is completely stock but I'd like to switch out the pickups. The sound that I'm looking for is what you hear in those "Ibanez guitar solo contest" on youtube. I'm going to be using this guitar mainly through my computer into BIAS FX. What pickups would you recommend to help me with the sound I'm looking for? I know a lot of the sound will be handle through the software but the pickups should make some difference. Thanks.
The amps on those videos are making 90% of the tone more than the pickups and definately more than the wood.
