Hi everyone,

I own a Ibanez Artstar 120. Its a semi hollow much like a Gibson e-355. The stock pickups are okay. In fact the neck sound pretty damn good. However the bridge simply needs more punch. I play quite a bit of classic and hard bluesy rock on it. A pickup that has a decently fat tone, good clarity, and isn't too bright would be ideal. There is just too many pickups out there and I don't even know where to start looking.

Does anyone have any good suggestions or related experience?

Thanks in advance for any input!

Dimarzio Air Classic, I was going to suggest a Duncan Pearly Gates but that might be a little bright for you.
Actually called Mark!

Carvin Holdsworth 22B might be a great choice for you. If you would like some links to an artist who's amazing on his carvin, I can provide.
