I totally agree... I have never been able to get decent metal tone with the current pickup models even when trying to build hybrid using workbench. I guess this is much of a concern when getting the 89 and expect it to be a shredding guitar, but only have vintage guitar models, still the variax could be much more versatil by adding a few modern guitar model.
I guess the only thing we can do is log feature request, I think in the last 4-5 years I probably already log it a few times.

+1 to this! Although I can get some pretty cool metal tones using the more unlikely models (Tele is great, LP is a bit...muddy). But yeah some modern metal stuff would be great. Even if it's just like a couple of pickups and one or two body types.

Based on this:
Unless it's a surprise, there aren't going to be any NEW pickup or body models; only upgraded models for the 1.8 firmware update.
