Well, are you interested in sounding like "Slipknot" or "ZZ Top"?
Believe it or not, there's a slight difference........

Yeah man, you gotta come specific when your talking pickups they are all so vastly different.

My favorite pickups are Dimarzio Tone Zone (bridge) and Dimarzio Air Norton (neck).

Not a bad choice. I've never used one, but I've heard good things about it. I hope you enjoy it! :D

Duncan is my preference too.
Dimarzio's always sounded a little "brittle and thin" to me....

.. that wouldn't be an good idea.
But I don't think guys who buy that kind of pickups doesn't play that song anyway.. I bet Michael Angelo uses that paricular one..

Do Some research! Listen to what your favorite guitar player sounds like and look up what he uses! See which tone you like best and think is better for you!
I have a Strat fully equiped with Seymour Duncan (I like the mini humbuckers) little 59 neck
Vintage coil in the Middle
Hot Rails bridge
With that combination I've got a really versatile sounding guitar! Can play from jazz to metal with it!

I also like the Dimarzio tone zone for bridge position and 59 (seymour duncan) on the neck!
