Question 1 or 2 Humbucker ?

Hi, i am thinking about getting my own Ran Guitar.
I just don´t know if i should get just one Emg 81 Humbucker or maybe two Emg 81 & 85. I always thought that two Pickups are better for playing Leads (i am Lead-Guitarist), but Chuck really got cool Lead Sounds out of his Stealth with just one Humbucker.
So can anybody basically tell me the difference in the sound between those two possibilities ?

If you have a guitar with 2 humbuckers at home, why won't you experiment for yourself and seeif you like it?

I like having two humbuckers, but I must say, having one humbucker looks really kick ass. (Alexi Laiho's ESP V)

Well i play DeathMetal with a lot of (i dont know how to explain) Muted-Riffs (look at Riff 5 --> http://metaltabs.com/tab/3112/ ),
and its just awesome with Emgs. I tried some other stuff but Emg has the best sound for this kind of shit.

If youre getting a Ran, those palm muted riffs will sound much better with some quality passives.

Definetly get two humbuckers. The neck position just sounds so much smoother and clearer for leads.

I don't mean as an effect but as a standard in playing...like when you play music you have it in the middle to play both the bridge and neck pickups lets say.
