Question WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PICK UP?

I have a Jackson Randy Roads models RR1 and it came with stock pick ups, (why I dont know) anyway I have a JB in the bridge, and Im getting ether a Pearly Gates in the neck or a screamen demon.
I have a Agile Les Paul which I might add for (300.oo bucks is amazing) with EMG 81 and 85 set which has amazing crunch and tone. What you guys got, anything better? What should I get for the neck?

First of all, I'm not a native english speaker, which is why I'm going to bother you all with this question about the possible misuse of a word. Now, to the point.

Isn't that like the definition of the word "stock" (used in this context)? That what is "stock" is what came with the thing from the factory? Or have I terribly misinterpretted that word?

Gu rr, you are correct, "stock" pickups mean that they were the first pickups in the guitar.

What BLS would say: Invaders suck, JBs are the best pickup ever, dont switch a JB for an invader.

Invaders are muddy, JB's are not.

I have an invader in my guitar. I like it. BLS just thinks they suck. anything he doesnt like, he claims sucks.
Yeah they can get a bit muddy but thats why you tweak the EQ.
