i have a epiphone goth v, here are the specs

# Classic V-shaped mahogany body
# Mahogany neck
# Ebony fretboard with side markers and XII inlay at the 12th fret
# Dual humbuckers
# Black chrome hardware

what pickups would go good with this? i heard that the type of wood the guitar has affects the tone or something like that. well i want a nice clean metal sound, iron maiden like. it has an emg 81 in the bridge already but im going to take it out and sell it for the new pickups, as well as sell a guitar that i no longer want. i will be getting the pickups on ebay, but i also dont want to spend tooooo much $$$ on them either.

Yeah they should have something printed on them usually that should tell you what they are but not always. Maybe a '59/Jazz combo would suit you I believe those are the correct names for them.

Or If you're after an Iron Maiden sound, Try The Dimarzio Super Distortion DP100(bridge), or DiMarzio PAF DP-103 in the neck. That's what Dave Murray uses.

Dimarzio Distortion awesome crunch, bill lawrence l500xl also sweet for the bridge position.
