what pickups do you guys use?

hiya

in my maverick F-1, the pickups have already lost their magnetism, and been fixed.

it seems to be happening again... so im after a new bridge pickup

as you may guess im into metal

anyone have any suggestions for some good pickups? i only really use the bridge

distortion is a must, and it takes a humbucker

i dont know whethers theres enough internal room for an active system, but please suggest active ones aswell

thanks! if poss, provide prices aswell

cheers!

I HAVE EMG-89 ON MY "HOME MADE GUITAR"

AND SOME DIMARZIO SHIT ON MY IBANEZ JEM-555 (DON'T REALLY LIKE THE OVERALL SOUND) NOT ENOUGH SUSTAIN ON IT ALTHOUGHT I PREFER THE TOUCH THAN MY OTHER GUITAR EMG ARE THE BEST.

I Have seymour Duncan George Lynch Screamin Demons on my bridge

for my ibanez......
And for my BC RIch NJ Bich, I have EMG 81's.......

But I preffer my Ibanez better than my BC RICH cuz my Ibanez has a comfy neck
and I use it for solo's......My BC Rich is ok but its too heavy when I'm gigin'.

since I've gotten my gibson I love the sound of their pickups.. I'm changing the neck pickup in my SG to a 500T and my strat copy i'm converting from triple coils to an EMG 81 and 85.. But now i'm thinking about not using the 85 and going with like a 490R alinco or another rythym pickup.. Anyone know what it sounds like to just go with 2 lead pickups?

Nobody answered my question.. does no one know or did no one notice it? I was just wondering what it sounds like to go with 2 lead pickups? I figured it might sound kind of interesting during solo's because I could switch between the two and get two different sounds.. But I don't know what it would sound like with both of them going at once.. Anyone ever heard a guitar with 2 leads?

In the Warlock, I have a Di Marzio Tone Zone in the bridge and a Di Marzio Air Norton in the neck. In the Warrior I have EMG 81's.
