Dude im a seymour duncan man myself. smile.gif I use a SH-6 distortion humbucker and have never played anything better for myself.Also if you want a high output bucker that isnt active the sh-13 dimebucker is the way to go.Check out www.seymourduncan.com and get some details on all they offer.

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Maybe a Seymour Duncan SH-4. Or the Dave Mustain Live Wire Pickup, I'm not sure if the name is correct, just look for the Dave Mustain Pickup tongue.gif

I like the bill lawrence alot beter than the dimebucker. There's no way to try them because the only place to get them is to order them directly. But they are only $50 and you could sell it no problem if you didn't like it. Can't see you being dissappointed based on the music you like.

I have an 81 in my other guitar which is definately hotter, but not nearly as clear. I like the way the BL is EQ'd alot better and sounds great clean which you definately can't say about the 81. I obviously bought it for metal, but it would work well for anything.

The L-900XL is the exact same pickup as the L-500XL but with an EMG/Lace-style top. Same high performance Dimebag tone with a sleeker, more modern look. Right now, we are the only dealer to carry the L-900 series. So get them while you can!!!

sorry I couldn't the link to wrok
