Heya guys.
On a days I'm buying an Ibanez RG1570 and I've been thinking about replacing the original pups into something hotter.
And here is my problem: I don't know which one to choose.
All I know is that I want to have bridge pickup sounding not to harsh (like EMGs) but a bit crispy/vintagely and neck pickup should be punchy, fast and accurate.
Should I then get PaF PRos in the bridge and Evos in the neck?

Roland Cube 60 but I'm replacing it soon with some tube.
As the guitar comes from USA and is 50% cheaper than the price I would have to pay in my country for it, pickups are simultaineously 50% cheaper aswell so it would be a waste of money in future not to replace it now, when the ocassion is best to do it.

I think Evos are great for neck, but for bridge I need more rawness.

I'd go with something like Evo for neck and for bridge a Seymour Screamin Demon, Dimarzio Super Distortion - something along those lines.

But yeah, what amp do you have in mind then?
Ibanez s540 with gold Schaller bridge and OMGGOLD hardware

Ibanez RGR320 with Lo-Edge Pro bridge and scalloped fretboard

Lee Jackson XLSC - 500

Roland Microcube

DiMarzio Breed in the bridge is always a great choice and will be a good match for an Evo in the neck. The Breed is a great pickup, warm and round and deffinetly not harsh or shrill. It can sound pretty aggressive depending on your pick attack, it is pretty dynamic.

I use bridge humbucker for some oldschool riffs mainly so that bit of vintage crisp would be nice.
When it comes to amp I've been thinking about LINE 6 Bogner Spider Valve 112.
