Mr Rob Bat. If that is your currenntly ficticious name, What will you change it to? Not, Bob Hope or some crap. That was weird for you to place that. I currently use a LTD AX-50 Left handed. Yes it is highly difficult to get a sweet assed AX in left handed. Low end guitars are so cheap. I have a set of Seymour Duncans Alpa & Omega in it currently. I used EMG 85 & 81 years ago, I do like passive pickups for you do not need to worry about over loading Amp/ Speakers nor battery replacements. I have used Dimarzio in the past I think I prefer Seymour Duncans still.
I miss running around as a kid and listen to Maiden, Wasp, Twisted, Metallica , Slayer, Anthrax an stuff on my walkman. Used to make tapes with my favorite song on. God that was the days. Everything was new.
