    I have a Custom/Jazz pair in one of my guitars that I use for a lot heavy sounds and some fingerstyle or ambient cleans and it does the job really well. I only tune that guitar down to A# so I'm not sure how well it would handle your low tuning, but I don't think there would be any big problems with it :2c:

    The Pegasus/Sentient set is amazing for this application.

    Bien ahi ese estilo!! Como se llama tu banda, hay videos??

    Tiene que ser SD si o si ? Tengo una viola con unos Dimarzio Illuminator 7 y anda muy bien para esa onda, eso si, afinada en A.

    Un saludo!

    I would go ceramic for that low of a tuning. The Dimarzio Ionizers are made for exactly what you want, I would try those.
