im selling my explorer so i can get this new limited edition Schecter Synyster Custom thats coming out soon, and thats gonna have custom Invaders with gold poles. Im not gonna change them out because i dont want to void the warranty on it since it is going to be extremely limited, plus it'll look cool. But im gonna swap out the bridge pup on my black Syn standard. There SD HB-108s, the poor mans invader, so what should i get. I want it good and beefy, with good bass and mids, and nice highs. I want it to be versatile, for classic rock, blues, but the thing im concerned about is metal. Think Children of Bodom, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, etc.

And before anyone jumps out with 'whats your amp?' im getting a Peavey XXX stack.
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

I want a Honda, but it must be German made. Also, I would like a 350 HP powerplant, but I need to get at least 56 miles to the gallon. An option for solar power would be great, but only if I can still go zero to sixty in under 5 secconds.

I don't think you need to worry about pickups, unless you're literally drowning in cash. If you have (or will soon have) a nicer guitar and a nicer amp, mabye you should be happy with that.

Why not just get a proper amp instead of buying another guitar that's practically the same as the one you already have?

One things for certain, if you DO get the guitar there's absolutely no point upgrading the pickups whilst you're running through a Spider.

[EDIT] I'm sure that bit about the amp wasnt there when I posted originally

Best thing to do is wait until you've got the amp and guitar then see what you feel you need to change about the tone.

If you change the bridge pickup to an active pickup, you either have to lose the neck pickup altogether or change that to an active too.
These go to eleven...

peavey xxx stack=? you would be best with a 5150/6505, but it's your choice

as for a pup look at the Duncan distortion
