I was looking around, and i found that a trembucker could be a nice replacement for my stock pups in my Ibanez, does anyone else agree?

Would this be an easy swap, or would i have to re-wire/re-pot my guitar?

would it fit correctly?

Also, could i just switch out the bridge pup for now? (Its an H-S-H)

Sorry, i havent gotten back to this thread.

My amp is the VK, and i'm looking to just upgrade my stock RG pickups.

I want a bit of output (without being active) and i play mostly metal and heavier styles, but i also play alot of cleans, which i guess can be done with a neck pickup.. other suggestions would help also.

If you want an active sound without the compression and sterile cleans, there's always the DiMarzio D-Activators not very versatile though. They do metal distortion, and gorgeous, strat-like cleans.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

To be honest I think a new amp would be better.
Yeah pickups to make a difference but a higher gain amp will have more effect on your tone than a pickup swap.
But if you like your amp then I suggest the D Activators as well. But try out different pickups, I like the Tone Zone + PAF Pro combo from dimarzio or the Super Distortion + PAF PRo (PAF in the neck). The Super Distortion has...super distortion...and the tone zone has a really nice sound to it. But it really depends on the amp.

And if you want a SUPER high gain sound, there's the DiMarzio D-Activator X. It's thheir X2N pickup built with D-Activator technology, so it's got the tone and gain of the X2N (gain was VERY slightly lowered, it's still the 2nd hottest pickup they provide), but the clarity of active pickups and better cleans.
