I have and Ibanez RG350dx and it has the stock pickups in it, they are terrible. I just want a bridge pickup for now. I play metal, death metal, some metalcore, and jazz, but I'll get a different pickup for that. So I can probably spend about $100-$150...

So please suggest some, thanks.

Do you downtune at all?
I play the metal/hardcore type thing and picked up a DiMarzio D-Sonic, its made for drop tunnings, and seeing as how my band plays in Drop B, it just sounds amazing with this pickup in the bridge.
Also if you flip the pickup around and install it with the solid bar away from the bridge it's a lot more of a shred pickup for standard tunning. It has a very balanced EQ too, so you can get a broad array of tones out of it with ease.

^ I play Drop C with this guitar. Also I would like it if the pickup was black because thats what all the hardware is, but it really doesn't matter.

^ I'm not sure, maybe bottom end tightness and well I have just heard that Ibanez stock pups are terrible.

Well if the low end is lacking, a drop sonic is perfect, it would tighten up the low end and give it amazing clarity

A Steves Special is good too.

It has great clarity, and notes dont mud together.

When playing loud, notes are so clear, they literally JUMP out of the amp.


Also it has a slight mid cut, so you can dial in a bit more mids on your amp

Well it looks like the drop sonic is my best option. I'm going with that unless someone else has a suggestion.
