Hi guys, i write because i would like to change the original pickups of my guitar but only the 2 humbucker, What do you recommend?
I do not like the sound of original pickups which with bridge pickup goes to high while the neck pickup is almost totally bass.
I'm looking for something with much sustain and a little more balanced as equalizing with good sound on distorted riff metal and something powerful on the solo

The neck pickup will almost always sound "warmer" than the bridge due to the way the strings sound/vibrate at that point on the guitar. That being said, you might be able to find something aftermarket that has a bit more high end response int he neck position.

I'm going to suggest the DiMarzio D-Activator Pickups. These Neck and Bridge pickups should give you a good signal to get some metal tones out of. However, I would also do some searching around on some pickup forums, like Dimarzio's or Seymour Duncan's forums. The users there might be a little more in tune with the differences in pickups to make a more specific suggestion. Otherwise, I don't think you'll go wrong with the D-Activators!

Hope this helps,
