Recommed good 7 string pickups?

Going to be picking up a ibanez prestige rg 1527m tomorow, and not sure if the stock ibanez pickups are any good. Any recommendations for something else I should put in there?

Bareknuckles, handwound in the UK and sound absolutely devastating

bareknucklepickups.co.uk

You can get decent prices on them from here theaxepalace.com

Thanks for the reply man. Out of their pickups which ones would you recommend? I have a engl powerball with a Mesa 4x12. I'm going for a very heavy high gain sound but I also do alot of clean tapping stuff. (think augury). I have emg 81 and 85 in my 6 string ibanez rg that I was using and it gave me pretty much the sound I was looking for. But I thought I'd try something new and better in my new and better axe heh.

The Miracle Man are supposed to sound like a more dynamic and responsive EMG 85. The Painkiller has a similar voicing to a Dimarzio Evolution. If you want all out balls try out a Warpig.

What I suggest you do is buy 2 or 3, keep the one you like best and sell the other 2... thats the only way to truly know what works with your amp/guitar combo.

Okay thanks alot man I appreciate it. Tim at Bare knuckles recommend a Painkiller 7 for my bridge and a Cold Sweat 7 for my neck. Then Nicholas @ The axe palace recommended a Miracle Man set. Can't decide what to get heh.

haha yeah, both nick and tim recommended similar setups for me.

What I will probably end up doing is getting a Painkiller, Miracle Man, and Warpig for my setup... and keep 2 of them.

Also been hearing great things about Motor City Pickups: http://motorcitypickups.com/ They have great reviews just like BKP. Damnit too many choices.
