Invaders actually sound terrible,,,I would stay as far away from them as possible

for a pretty all encompassing bridge pup I'd say something like a Dimarzio Tone Zone would be good,, Neck Pickups for the styles you listed could vary quite a bit.

Go check out www.rockfieldpickups.com, listen to the sound bites. I think the SWC would work. I have a fatass in the bridge, and a mafia in the neck of my ltd m100. I'm getting the same setup for my king v, and some SWV's for my ltd ec500. EMG's suck.

DiMarzio Evo or Evo II would be nice, along with a Duncan Jazz or a DiMarzio Vintage PAF. Rockfields are good, as well as BareKnuckles if u can afford em. Some how Billie Joel got an Invader to sound good, and Metallica used EMGs, so u might wanna Pool route the body and do some mods on the pickguard for a 3-humbucker RG. Definately would look interesting

Wow. You continue to give bad and mostly generic and useless advice....

If you want to wait till Jan, when I get back to Orlando. I'm home for the holidays right now, skipped this six weeks of school. All my recording gear is down there, the computer here doesn't even have a mic. But I can tell you this, my setup is a little deeper sounding, I think because of the agathis wood the guitar body is made of.
