Looking for pickups to go into a mahogany body explorer.  Guitar has a 25.5" scale length, fixed hipshot bridge, and will be tuned to Drop C.  Most of the stuff I play ranges from The Sword, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, Mastodon, and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. I play through 3 amps mainly: Big Crunch One Knob, Peavey 6534+, and Friedman Butterslax.

Pickups are chosen to suit your playing style not your guitar or it's tuning as much.

I would recommend a beginner to get a selection and play chourd strumming with a soft one and lead with a medium. One's with a gripping bit on them are good to start with anyway.

Most more experienced players, especially playing lead, use thicker hard ones.

Dunlop ones are just fine and not expensive - which is good because picks disappear like ghosts.

PSimonR, thank you for your input. The question however is regarding pickups, not picks

I voted for the Black Winters, I have a set I put in a 7-string and I love them for Mastodon kinds of tones. They have a real gnarly, grinding midrange that may not be to your taste, but they're also more versatile than you'd maybe think, they clean up surprisingly well with the volume rolled back. (And not just "clean up well for a high-output metal-oriented humbucker" but "clean up well, full stop.") They have a lively, organic quality to them; I replaced a set of D Activators and it's a night and day change.
