    I have been thinking of getting new pickups for my ibanez rgd2127Z

    I have narrowed it down to

    Seymour Duncan:
    JB
    Full shred
    Distortion

    Bareknuckle:
    Aftermath
    Painkiller
    Warpig

    DiMarzio:
    D activator X

    I have ibanez pickups in it and im looking for more low end with the some clarity and high mids and in between treble

    I'd add the DiMarzio Crunchlab/Liquifire set to the running as well. Recently got them and they're super clear without being overbearing in the high end.

    I'll cast my vote for the JB. I've used that pickup for years and it is very versatile. Clean or mean is all in your approach with that one.

    If you can try them all out, i would reccomend you do so. Good luck!

    SD Distortion is the best I've tried for anything metal. Tight with tons of grind, and a nice controlled and defined low-end.

    Another +1 for the JB-- I have it in my PRS SE, and I can get some really, really great response from it. Like the above user said, though, it's all in the touch with that thing :)

    I would say probably the duncan distortion or D-Activator. In my opinion, the bareknuckle pickups are only good for djent, so unless you only play djent, go with distortions or d-activators

    BKP's are only for djent? Not sure if bad troll, or just stupid.

    On Topic: BKP Holy Diver/VHII set.

    FWIW: The Holy Diver is like a JB with more tamed highs, and better bass response.

    My ibanez has a crunch lab in the bridge and it sounds great. Huge difference from the stock pick up

    For Basswood +1 on the Duncan Distortion! (my favorite pickup in Basswood is the Lundgren M7) :)
