Go with Seymour Duncans instead, they are way better than active dimarzios.

Since we're talking about Yngwie Malmsteen's signature pickup, I'm assuming that you're implying a single coil DiMarzio. I suggest a Seymour Duncan, as MetalThrashingMad proposed, but I specify the Hot Rails pickup for your neck position. Here's Seymour Duncan's list of single coil pickups, look around!

http://www.seymourduncan.com/websit...ratsdescr.shtml

In my personal experience, and thus opinion, humbuckers handle sweep picking much better than single coils, which is why I suggest the hot rails. But if you must have a single coil ( I'm not sure where your allegiance lies ) then anything from Seymour Duncan you surely cannot go wrong with.

Commandment#11- Thou shall not not use single coil pickups for metal.

well ibanez does put dimarzios in most of their higher end guitars... but i don't ever recall hearing anything about them making active pickups...

i like dimarzios alot... just as much if not more than duncans...

emg's are where it's at for actives though... although i like the duncan livewire metal more then the 81 for a bridge pu.
