replacement pickups

i bought an Ibanes Jet King II not too long ago, and i'd like to put some meaty sounding pickups in it. although the sound that gest me best is the airy stuff Fenders make, i'd like to use this axe for a more metal-friendly project i'm working on. can anyone recommend anything particularly for the bridge position to put in the Jet King? thanks much..

I've been getting great results from my dimarzio FRED pickup.


Very clear and indeed meaty.

I have tons of guitars and hands down, the nicest is the Symour Duncan JB. I have them in most of my guitars, and they make each guitar sound better in its own way. Trust me

Go to the Seymour Duncan website and listen to all the mp3 files for the different pickups in both bridge and neck positions, clean and distortion. That should give you a good idea of the type of pickup you want.

My very favorite heavy pickup is by far the Dimarzio Tone Zone.
If you want a pickup that has it all and with searing harmonics, that pickup with do it.

It also cleans up nicely and sounds very good in parallel mode.
