Hi guys

Building a new setup, PRS Se single cut with mark v head and mesa 4x12. Shooting for high gain but more old school high gain...thrash and early death metal type.

What pick ups would work well in this scenario. Ideally passive pickups.


Suggestions?

Gibson 500T for the bridge
and the 496R fir the neck.

They're amazing in Flying Vs.
Searing liquid leads great attack and sustain, and heinous organic crunch on tap also. Warm and articulate.

Check out the Fishmans man. You won’t regret it.

Believe it or not, the Dimarzio Super Distortion is great for old school metal and thrash. I have been using them for years in my Strats and G&L Legacy. And of course you can never go wrong with an EMG 81.

I have a variety of pickups in my guitars including SD Black Winters, Sh-6, Sh-12, EMG 80/85 but my fav with the Mark V are the JBs in my RR 1.
