I played a Schector with blackouts and loved it. So i thought about putting a set in my EC-1000. It has Seymour Duncan JB/'59 PUPs in it now, but i was thinking of putting the jb/59 in my sg, and putting blackouts in my EC-1000. First off, would it sound good? im looking for a good metal sound. It will run through a Mesa Dual Rectifier.

And lastly, could i put an EMG afterburner with Blackouts?

EDIT: I have a good metal sound now, but the JB/'59s dont always handle drop tunings great.

It should sound quite similar to the Schecter (only play a lot better cuz Schecters have rowboats for necks).

Ideally, yeah, you should be able to use the afterburner, but I doubt you'd need more gain than what those pickups put out, especially goin through a Recto.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Learn to use the Edit button And I believe I have tried the ATX. Its slightly better, but now I get to bitch about the sticky finished necks I know they wear down over time and are super sexy smooth, but I prefer bare/satin/oiled wood.

Put em in the guitar that you have that's more comfortable for you (the EC, I take it). I personally can't play Ibanez guitars because the fretboads are radiused too flat and the necks are too thin. I prefer the rounder ESP style neck/radius.
