depends what you mean by better, which is also dependant on what style of music you want to play...?

Dimebuckers? Hell no.

Bill Lawrence L-X500 are what Dime actually used.

You could also do series/parallel wiring or coil splits, or reversing the phase.

You could also throw on some locking tuners.

Is that a bolt on neck? If so I'd swap it out for a compound radii with jumbo SS frets; or at least have a fret dressing done (every XM series axe I've tried had some sharp frets).

Trade out the pickups for:

Bill Lawrence L500c/L50xl
Dimarzio air norton/x2n
Duncan '58/custom custom

Next a miniswitch for coil tapping.

Is that routed for a floyd? Swap for a real floyd or route it up for one (or Kahler).

Of course after all this stuff you would have invested enough to buy a pretty killer guitar...
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

at that point it would be in your best interest to get a new guitar
just my opinion

Mudder Has a fine idea. I'd do what he said.

maybe smaller than jumbo, just medium.

haha ZOMG I have a dimebag guitar I wanna sound like dimebag..

Dimebuckers!! Krankenstein!! (Continue a whole list of crappy gear that has Dime's name on it here..)

He never even used half the shit with his name on it. All it is is marketing gimicks.

The sad part is.. It works.

Anyway back on the subject.. EMGs and Original FR it.
