Straight foreword question,

For versatility I usually use an ‘01 PRS swamp ash with stock McCarty pickups.
Been my #1 for many years.
Clean to mean it covers a lot of ground.
This guitar + whichever Diezel, does almost everything well, except super high gain chunk.
The bridge pickup is a bit too woolly for that.

For all out crushing crunch, a 70’s Greco LP with a JB in the bridge.
The JB adds some beautiful high mids to the Diezel sound.
Sounds like Tool in a box.

What do you guys use?

Well, I only have a Herbert and I've only had that for about 5 months, but so far, I've been liking my BKP A-Bomb and Holydiver the best. The BKP Crawler and SD Distortion sound pretty good, too. Personally, I've never been a big fan of the SD JB, but I've got one laying around. Based on your comments, sounds like I should give it a try.

The Painkiller I have in my supersrat sounded nasty good with the Herbert I owned.

Stock PRS Custom 24s into a VH4S. I know a lot of folks change out the pups but I don't hear hear the need. YMMV

Can't comment on the Diezel, but I have many high gainers. Since you have a PRS, original PRS T&B pickups are the best IMO, cut, clarity, nice tight lows. I put a 1985 PRS reissue treble in my 2015 Custom 24, it's the best. Been through several PRS pups.

... anything Alnico V or Ceramic in the 16-17K Ohm range.

PAF-type pups can work too... but depending on the voicing, they can lack the kick, and umpf on the front-end I like from a higher output pickup. If you play more rock-modern rock... PAF-type pups may work great for you. A bridge in the 8.5-9.0K range is a good place to start. Not a fan of actives... they sound cool for the first 5 minutes, but quickly loose the luster and little pick changes/nuances I hear with passives.

I use Dimarzo PAFs, but I cannot say that other pickups may not be as good or better...

+1 here - the Diezel seemed a little more sensitive to the "active vs passive" thing than a lot of other amps we tried that day, and sounded particularly brutal with the ESP that had EMG's in it.
