well i'm just interested to know what the best metal humbuckers are? i know there are endless amounts of pickups but i want to know who the best manufacturers are and what the top models are at the moment, and also if i can slap any on my yamaha pacifica, hmm yea i know not the typical metal guitar but if i invest in a decent bc rich beast or jackson rr5 then i would be looking for some neat pickups. Any suggestions?

cheers

if you like the Dragon Force tone and style try out DiMarzio. John Petrucci use dimarzio's too.
