    Dimarzio Super Distortion is pretty much perfect for chugga chugga palm muting. I don't think it will be too dark at all...Tone charts and other such stuff tend to make it look like it's a dark pickup. It's not.

    edit: or, go with a Custom, I hear those are awesome.

    wow, thanks for the replies guys. I think i'll check out the custom. How loud is it, compared to say...a jb? and Davey, I am wondering that too.

    mahagony body, mahagony neck? this just screams for a JB. the mahagony will tame those heights but it'll still have it's tight crunch.. but the ebony fretboard makes me think of the custom too .. but wont that one sound a bit dark? too muddy? or will the ceramic magnet negate that and it'll just stay it's ordinary kickass self?

    I voted for the JB because you mentioned you wanted a pup that was " articulate ". I think the JB is just that.

    One more vote for the custom, high output, tight low-end without being dard, nice, articulate, that's what I have in the guitar in my avatar and it sounds great through my jcm-800 for hardcore..

    Can't imagine a JB being dark in an SG. Can't imagine an SG being dark.
