Alright i just bought an ibanez rg5ex1 electric guitar about.. a month ago

i love it, its a nice guitar but as ive looked up the stock pickups arnt the best
(Inf pickups)
INF3 humbucker neck pickup
NFS3 single coil mid pickup
INF4 humbucker bridge pickup

I play in dropped C tuning with my beefy strings (11 gauge)

And im not to sure what i should be get. PRice range is decent, not extremely expensive, but im not poor. lol

Bands im lookin to be playing, Sea of Treachery, As i lay Dying, August Burns Red, Etc.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

As you've looked up?
So does this mean you've looked on sites that said the pickups weren't amazing, so you've decided that too?
It sounds to me like you dont really need new pickups.

But anyway, post above me poses the right questions.
