All right i did what someone told me and fixed the old epi and it should be back in about 2 or 3 days.

What type of pups should i get for hard rock and punk i want something along these lines with a good lead tone.

i was think duncan P-rails.

i dont really need anything to gainy so EMG's are out of the question they just taste so bad i dont think ive played any guitar with EMG's that ive liked.

I have a Classic 30 running trough a make shift Vox valvetronix speaker cab with a 70/80 and a CM-2 overdrive sounds damn good with a cheap chinese strat so i could only imagine what the epiphone will sound like, and with a pup upgrade it will be even better.

also while im on this I could call up the guitar tech and ask him to mod the pots, what pots do you guys recomend for a les paul style guitar.

EDIT:in case you dont know this EPI model features three humbuckers so yah.

Doi yo uwant 3 new pickups, or do you just want to replace one?
If your only doing one the P-rails Is extremely versatile
If your doing all 3
Id reccomend
p-rails
JB
Jazz

Thats what I want in my Black Beauty (when I get it(Which could be a while(if at all))).

anyone have recommendations for the pots, what should i tell the guy to mod them with.

i think that will proby be cheaper.

and if anything ill probly take in my shecter and have em change out the JB and jazz in that one to put into the LP to have a completely moded epi.

nice guitar! i actually want some paf-style 'buckers for mine, the epi pu's are quite dull sounding. but yeah, i'm a big fan of the classic '57s, but i don't know what the SD or dimarzio equivalents are. gibson pu's are just too freakin' expensive!

edit: CTS pots are the way to go

yeah, they sound really thick and full with some good drive, which is great for leads and rhythm, but they lack some brilliance or sparkle clean

Duncans - Custom 5 bridge, 59 neck, Stag Mag middle.

The JB isn't all that great and it's really not suited to LP bodies.
Actually called Mark!
