Maybe try EMG 81TW and 89, that way you have coil taps. or semour Duncan blackouts
Now officially has too much gear to list

what kind of duncans would u recommend?
#5
id say
-pearly gates, very bell like harmonics great cleans and leads. with a dimebucker which is very hot good for chugging ryhthms and screaming solos
-the duncan distortion, good for High output humbucker built for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for old school metal, punk, thrash and other heavy rock styles. Great for drop tunings.
-the full shred High output tone for heavy rhythms and speed riffs. Used for classic rock, heavy rock, and aggressive solo playing
- Invader
Ultra high output humbucker built for aggressive playing styles. best for thrash, punk, metal and other heavy rock styles

also you could go active with duncans

-Livewire™ Metal LW-HMET
18-volt active humbucker with extremely high output. Recommended for punk, garage, thrash, old school metal, nu-metal, black metal and other heavy rock and aggressive music styles
