    air norton / paf pro are both great pickups, air norton's a bit warmer and rounder while the paf pro is a bit more balanced with slightly more output. either's great for that guitar on paper.

    bridge i'd recommend a breed or tone zone (both have lots of weight, warmth, and crunch). the lynch screamin' demon is a bit... unique (not a bad thing though) and designed for an all-maple guitar, while the dimarzios are eq'd more towards basswood. the stuff john petrucci uses (steve's special or d-sonic in the bridge) is also a solid option, particularly if you lean more towards modern/progressive metal tones as opposed to 80's hard rock/metal.

    air north/breed or paf pro/tone zone is about as good as it gets for an RG 550... great shred tone, and cool guitar. pics?

    you are saying that paf pro has more output but i saw that paf pro has 8,4 dc and air norton 12,58 dc!from dc we can see the output or not?

    dc resistance =/= output, although in general guitars with higher dc resistance tend to be warmer/fatter/more powerful. there's a lot of other variables in pickup design though, which is why it's not an absolute. the dimarzio website uses another gauge for measuring output; the air norton is 270 while the paf pro measures at 300 (not exactly sure what the unit they use is, but they know their stuff).

    that's an absolutely sexy guitar btw.
