I need pickups for a classic rock/hairmetal/van halen-ish guitar. They will need to handle distortion and cleans, and be humbuckers. I need a good pedal forevrything from classic rock AC/DC distortion up to heavey metal distortion. Im thinking the DimeDistortion pedal.

Ohh, fun...fon't get a distortion pedal then, get an overdrive pedal or maybe even just an EQ. As far as pickup combos go what kind of guitar do you have?

Peavey Predator? So alder or basswood at best? In that case I'll go for one of these combos

Bridge: Dimarzio Norton Neck: Dimarzio Breed
Bridge: Dimarzio Super distortion Neck: Dimarzio Breed
Bridge: Duncan Custom Custom Neck: Duncan 59

Hmmm...it might be tricky balancing the two outputs as the Super Distortion is way hotter than a 59, also it's arguably the least versatile of the three...it's quite a fizzy sounding pickup, great for 80's tones but perhap not ideal for traditional metal tones.

i need to be able to get HEAVEY distortion as well.
EDIT: after reading about the 59' I definately want it. He said it is perfect for van halen.

All three of those bridge pickups are damned hot...you don't need a pickup with distortion in it's name to get distortion

i was reading the description, and it was the only one that talked about getting good heavey distortion.

Ignore the descriptions...they're all guff

Remember, distortion comes from the amp, not the pickups.

So a Custom Custom+59 combo would be good? Would all these combos work out sounding alike, or do they each have distinct sounds?

Get a pedal, it'll make a lot more difference - remember you don't need a "metal" distortion, or even a distortion....just a nice overdrive or maybe even just an EQ.

^ agreed.

HBE power screamer or big D, something like that, depending on budget. i hear good things about the MI audio crunch box as well, though I haven't tried that.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
