    I would recomend the Bill Lawrence XL-500. It is the original Dimebucker. Go to Billlawrence.com and check it out. I would also go to harmonycentral.com. Myself I would discourage the JB. Alot of people like them but, I havent figured out why. I have had a few but, I have always sold them soon after. The DD is a good choice and also the custom. If you wnat allout balls to the wall, get your hands on an invader.

    All my knowledge of high output pickups are kinda outdated, as I stopped using them like 4-5 years ago. Still the ones I remember doing great metal tones were (some DiMarzio's included) SD Custom, SD JB, SD Distortion, DM super distortion, DM X2N, DM MegaDrive, Gibson 500T. Frankly I liked the 500T and JB the most among the high output ones I used.

    Reading the "influences" list I gotta agree with the dimebucker - although I believe Maiden use DiMarzio SD's, so the Duncan Distortion would more catch that vibe.

    I like the Dime alot for modern metal tones.

    The Dime has a "squishy", somewhat vowelish attach that lends itself well to palm muting. It's a fairly high output pickup without the mid peak that you often find in pickups wound that hot. Great bottom end and nice present highs that aren't in the least bit harsh or overly bright. It has a very useable clean tone as well.

    I have the Dime in a guitar that I use for drop D brutal work and it's perfect. It's a great pickup where output and clarity matter.

    Yup - sounds like either the DD or the Custom. I think both will do what you want.

    Metallica, Pantera, Slayer, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Selpultera, Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy and I have a Boss Hyper Metal.

    I'd go with a Custom in the bridge of the LP....that will smoke. It will get as heavy as you want, and still clean up decently when you roll off the volume/switch to the clean channel.

    What do you mean by heavey metal. If you want high output, tons of gain and the likes i suggest a custom, or maybe even a JB. JBs are very versitle and would do you well in the bridge of a nice LP. They tend to be a little think in some guitars, but in LP with the right eq they will scream. A custom has a little less uppermids spike and more of a bottom end for a PAF on steroids kind of sound. Ome other choices would be a 59 for some more of a classic rock/ ac/dc metal sound. Another may be an Invader, however, I find invaders to become a bit muddy in LPs with their huge low end. If you post some of your influences and more specific type of sound you want, im sure a lot of the metal guys around here can help you. Also, what amp are you using? Any pedals? These can make a huge difference in the tone you get.
    Good Luck,
    Brian
