I have a Schecter C-1 Elite that I was going to sell but now I've decided to keep it and mod it into a baritone.
I need humbucker suggestions. I want high output and coil tap. Two hums total.
I want it to be able to get dirty but stay clean and deep and clear as well.

Have you checked out Joe Naylor's Railhammer pickups? http://www.railhammer.com/
Rails under the wound strings; poles for the rest.
High output available and coil-tappable.
From Railhammer site: "Even the most aggressive fast riffs and palm muting are defined, clear and cut through the mix."

Check out this guy's work: http://www.zhangbucker.com/humbuckers.html
The tone will make you smile, and he *loves* doing coil taps.

Bill Lawrence's L90s - perfect clarity, smooth attack, strong voltage output, strong sensitivity to note fundamental and technique. Is able to do split coil with minimal hum.

More on those Railhammers. Just came across a review on YouTube featuring--coincidentally--a Schecter S-1 with Hyper Vintage Railhammers:
The reviewer points out the "exceptional low-end clarity" delivered by the rails under the wound strings. The fat singing highs delivered by the poles under the plain strings are most evident in the neck position. I'd like to hear the higher output Chisel and Anvil Railhammers for the metal zone.

Hmm. My baritone has 4 wound and 2 un-wound strings. And the current humbuckers are problematic because of that. The 2 non wound strings are about 3 db louder than the others.
