Has anyone had any experience with this? I was thinking about putting in a couple of burstbuckers or maybe a couple Dimarzio super distortions.

what style do you play?
is there a particular tone you want?
what amp are you using?
what is your budget?

what type of tone are you going for? those are very differently-voiced pickups, i imagine (i haven't tried the sds). what's your amp and budget? edit: beaten to it

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

well what style of music do you play? if you plan on playing anything heavy, then the burstbuckers are a bad idea

Amp?...

Its not really worth it if you have a SS amp imo. You'll only hear a significant difference with a tube amp.

ok here's the skinny. I have about 150 bucks to spend either on one or both. Why are the burstbuckers bad for distortion? I pretty much just want badass all-around pickups. The stock ones are pretty dang good but I just want more from the bridge mainly. My current rig is a Line 6 Flextone HD run simultaneously with an Epiphone So-Cal 50. Prety much a hybrid of solid state/digital modeling and tube tone. As far as the tone i'm going for, it needs to sound GREAT with distortion.

Burstbuckers are much more suited for 70s rock/metal. If you want a really fat distorted tone, look more at Dimarzio Super Distortions or D-Sonics, or a Seymour Duncan Distortion.
