Looking to replace the standard Epiphone LP humbuckers, what pickups should I buy? I play hard-rock/grunge/punk, would like some good cleans and roaring, toneful distorted sounds. Using a Peavey Valveking Halfstack.

Ideas?

I'd say a Dimarzio Super Distortion set, or EMG's. Seyour Duncan's work well also. I would be cautious of buying anything not made by those guys. It really depends on personal preference though..

Best of Luck!

Go to Rockmonkeyguitars.com. The pickups are made by one of our fellow UG members and you can get pickups hand-wound to your specs for a good price.

very muddy tone, neck pickup is pure twang, and for both, there's simply not much bite.
I want two different pickups, for versatility;
one for Corgan's buzz-saw distorted tone, and the other for a rich, warm clean tone.

Specific suggestions would be nice.

i always say Dimarzio PAF Pro for the neck and Dimarzio Super Distortion for the bridge
generally covers most things

hmm..? this site Rockmonkeyguitars.com IDK about but for like 40 more dollars you can get some Bare knuckles but both are really high priced passives.

seconded. i have a dimarzio FRED in the neck of my stagemaster and it gets good cleans too. you might want to consider that.

You should be getting your distortion from a Big Muff Pi pedal, if you want something similar to Corgan.

Get a Seymour Duncan Jazz in your neck, and an Seymour Duncan SH-5 Custom in the bridge.
