Hello, I am going to buy this pretty cheap guitar, and change the pickups so I was wondering about a good set of passive, but nice and fat beefy pickups. One for the bridge, with some chunky distortion qualities for hard rock and metal( like System of a Down, and Coheed and Cambria, as well as The Faceless and stuff) and then for the neck a nice clean pickup for some light, airy The Edge tones as well as possibly a nice, thick blues tone...any suggestions?

Thanks...

Thinking about dropping a Burstbucker Pro into the neck...and a SD SH-6 in the neck? Think that would do the trick?

Dimarzio Evolution or Breed, or Evo 2 in the bridge
and a Joe in the neck
go to www.dimarzio.com and use the pickup selector

Depends on how much you want to spend. If you have deep pockets, look into some of the offerings from Bare Knuckle Pickups.

Dimarzio Breeds - beefier than Ian Botham having a bath in Oxo.

I recommend putting them in the Iceman though

Oh, do you think that will sound better than in a cheapo guitar?
I have a question, off-topic sorry, but if I have fret buzz should I just raise my action a bit cause it is pretty loose...
And um, is the Burstbucker Pro a good choice for the neck PU?

Check the neck to see if it's straight and check the frets to make sure none of them are sticking out. Then go to work on the action to eliminate fret buzz.

I think the Burstbucker Pro works very well in the neck position. As long as your eventual choice of bridge pickup isn't stupid high output, it should balance reasonably well.

I haven't tried one, but I've heard a Motherbucker is a great passive PU with really high output for heavy riffage.
