Who has the best idea about some new pick-ups?

Got a really old charvel I'm doing work on. Need new pick-ups, but have no idea what to put in there. Something heavy, preferably not actives. Maybe Seymour Duncans...

I have a humbucker and two single coils. What do you guys think? What are some really good sounding heavy pick-ups? I was thinking of the dimebucker, but I haven't heard very good things about them. And I'm not going the EMG route.

Dimebucker is no good.

Good choice on the No EMG's

What exactly are you looking for in a pickup?

I like the EMG 81/85's, but I'm not a huge fan of actives because I do a lot of different technical stuff. Just want something that will be pretty good with some crushing metal. My rack set-up makes any guitar sound good. I really like a lot of the PRS pick-ups. I have a '96 PRS with dragon 1's in it and they sound pretty damn good. But I need to single coils on the top. Thinking about getting some double stacked. But I don't really know much about pick-ups. I've always been happy with what came in my guitars (but these are high end guitars).

I guess I'm just looking for some good pick-ups for some heavy duty metal (killswitch engage, death, pantera...) with some really technical lead stuff (tony macalpine, jason becker...)
