ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED!! I have a 2 year old Epiphone Les Paul Custom which is in really good shape and plays great. Now since i learned how to play with this guitar i wouldn't want to get rid of it but the only problem i seem to have with it (now that i started playing it again after a year of primarily 8-string) is that the stock pickups are terrible. Sadly I am not able to get one decent sound out of them (running the guitar through Axe-Fx), so i am thinking about changing them. Now i know EMG's are the first suggestion when it comes to metal but i got them on my 8-string and I think on a guitar like this they wouldn't sound that good. I am thinking of putting Seymour Duncan Custom (SH-5) in the bridge pickup but i have no idea what i could put on the neck (maybe SD Pearly Gates). I like bands like Tool, Porcupine Tree, Megadeth and basically all the metal classics. Since i have my 8-string for technical AAL / Rings of Saturn kinda stuff i am looking to "metalize" this Epiphone LP as much as i can to play mostly metal classics and other 6-string songs. HELP A BROTHA OUT!!
