im in the middle of my second build and im starting to look at pickups
i was looking at a seymor duncan dimebucker.
does anyone know if they are any good or have any other suggestions.
(i wanna play metal with it)

You really can't go wrong with EMG 81s... also, if you prefer Seymour Duncan, the Blackouts have really good reviews. If you don't want active, the Dimebucker would be a good choice also. I've played a Dean guitar with a Dimebucker in it and it's pretty metal!
Main setup:

ESP Eclipse
PRS Torero SE
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster head, 2x12 cab
FX: Crybaby Slash Wah, Ibanez TS9x, Mesa Boogie Throttle Box, Boss TU-2, BF-3, DD-3, PS-6, RC-3, etc.

Not to my ears either, but I'm playing through a Peavey Bandit. The Dimebucker cuts through, and can really chug. Not a bad pickup.

From Dimarzio, the D-Sonic is pretty good too.
Gear:
Dean MS STD V w/ Dimebucker
Dean ML '79

Randall RG75
Peavey Bandit 112
