I have a custom Ibanez basswood body, one pickup position (bridge) only, maple/walnut neck with rosewood fretboard, and a floating tremolo. What pickup do think would sound best in it?

Ones I have on hand: X2N, Super Distortion, Pearly Gates, SD Jazz, SD '59, bill lawrence L500, a bunch of stock Ibanez (INFs, V7/V8, and IBZs)..

I am willing to get another pickup if you think it would sound better with this body/neck

the jazz and 59 wont give the treble pickup that punch (well actually you could get away with the 59.)

Im assuming you're into metal, but regardless i think i would have to say the super distortion out of the choices, but all in all i would suggest the Duncan Distortion, SD Full Shred, Dimebucker, Tone Zone, or if you wanna spend the money for the routing, and EMG 81.

the 59's more of a neck pickup

Dimebucker? Eww.

Out of the ones up there, I think the X2N and Super Distortion would be good choices for metal. I've never had the pleasure of trying a Bill Lawrence, but I hear they're great.

go for EMG HZ Passive Pickups. they're the best for any kind of Ibanez bass. Perfect for any style and they sound amazing.
