so i am having a little bit of a problem picking out some pickups...

well i play a range of hardcore, metal and all of their subgenres (metalcore, deathcore......)

so i originally though emg 81 and a 60... so here is the problem my guitar has a 5 way selector switch and i hear that those emgs only work with a 3 way...

so are there any emgs that work in a 5 way setup, or any other pickups that you recommend... btw way like a lot of bass for palm muting

If you want EMGs why don't you just change the switch? It's like 5 bucks and you have to do the soldering anyway, it's not a big deal to change the switch.

I really wouldn't bother with actives unless you've got a decent tube amp hidden away in that sig.

If they're going in the Ibanez then any 4-conductor humbuckers would be a direct swap for the stock pickups.
