89..hm. i dunno lmao, i only know about 81/85/60

Hm. They are active pickups, so they have batteries. erm...thats all i know thats useful, uhm. they can be muddy, but thats a good thing for metal.

what do you consider to be "good sound"?

It would be easier to come up with recommendations if you mentioned what musical style(s) you want to play.

I have fitted my Ibanez RG1570 with DiMarzio pickups. ToneZone in bridge position, classic air in neck position. Those pickups work great for me, but they might not necessarily be what you're after.

ah sry
i want to sound like metal
does anybody know what pickups Gus.G Uses or Maybe Michael AMott ? I need damn heavy sound good for solo and also good for riffing

Michael Amott's signature guitar has Seymour Duncan pickups (JB at the bridge. '59 at the neck) Don't know about that Firewind guy.

You should check out these websites, and compare the different models.
http://dimarzio.com/
http://www.emginc.com/guitar.asp
http://seymourduncan.com/

you could go to a guitar shop as well, and just ask to try guitars with different pickups, to see which ones suit your style best.

i have seymour duncans in mine you can buy the '59 and the JB as a matched set, works out a little bit cheaper, i would say that they are really good pickups and you could get a good metal tone out of them along with the right amp/pedals

"muddy" is not a good thing for metal, if they were muddy, no one would use them for metal. The 89 is (2) SA single coils, 1 single SA when split, and the 2 SA's together in humbucking mode are meant to sound like the 85.

i am not really into humbucker trechnics sry
but what do you guys thing
is 1 humbucker enough to sound heavy ? i saw alexa from children of Bodom just uses 1 Humbucker for his Flying V , its an EMG Hz4 or something like this
or would you prefer 2 Humbucker ? like Michael Amott
i dont know if 1 is enough

A humbucker in the bridge position is really all you ned for a nice metal punch, but two pickups give room for more tonal variation.
