well my dad just said he will be buying me a new bridge pickup and I need some suggestions for a good mid to high gain distortion pickup. I will be spending under 100 dollars.

ur question needs more details.

what amp?
what guitar?
what kind of pickup (humbucker/single coil)?
what kind of music?
do u want distortion from the pickup? or a pickup that sounds good with mid to high gain distortion?

i have a Seymour Duncan JB-4.
it sounds tasty.
it's pretty beefy but not too extreme.
See above post ^

my guitar is an epi sg, as for my amp it's a spider 3 but I will be getting a new tube amp for christmas but till then i'm stuck with my amp, I play hard rock and a little metal. how are pickups with ceramic magnets?

Ceramic's will be good for a heavily overdriven tone or a distorted/fuzz tone, though they're not so good playing clean.
#7
^no.

ceramics tend to be a little more higher output, more agressive, and crisper/edgier. alnicos are warm, punchy, and round. i had ceramics myself, but moved on to alnicos. i like alnicos, but you might like ceramics. for vintage stuff defintely alnico. but seeing you want to play high gain, u might like ceramics.
