Well, right now I have a Jackson DXMG with EMGs in it right now. Which are pretty good, but I think I could do better. So, I'm looking for a new pickup. Im a big fan of Seymour Duncans but I havent really tried DiMarzios(which I've heard are pretty good).

I was looking at the Seymour Duncan SH-13(Dimebucker), SH-6, SH-8 Invader and the DiMarzio super distortion.

I need to get a better crunch out my Dinky and good for solos as well. If anyone has other pickups that would be good for really crunchier, tight metal, please lemme' know.
My budget is 100$ and my amp is a 5150.

dont waste your money on the Dimebucker. get the original Bill Lawrence hot XL500. they're 50$.

Dimebuckers and Invaders are bad pickups, avoid them like the plague

You don't need super high output pickups for metal.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Try Blackouts. I think they use the EMG Qwik-Connect stuff, and sound much more like juiced-up passives than actives.

i have a super distortion and like it, and my friend plays metal and gets a great sound out of it. i personally use it for classic rock though, and it works well

I found the Bill Lawrence pickup for 50bucks. I just would like to know, which pickup would I swap it with? And could I go to guitarcenter and have them install it?

Edit: And would this pickup be good for crunchy metal and killer lead solos?

Ugh. You'll have to swap to a different pot for the BL.

The TS of that thread was an obvious troll though.

You sure? He sounded pretty serious...although referring to a DS-1 as "fancy" is probably kinda trollish.

Notice that he only posted twice. Once to start the madness, and once to keep it going. The rest of it was carried by other idiots, and I'm not sure if they were serious either.
