i'm currently thinking of getting some new pickups for my epiphone special 2,i'm not really sure which to get though,i thought about some type of emg's maybe?.
My band plays stuff influenced by whitechapel,exit ten,killswitch engage,despised icon and parkway drive if that helps?.
and btw before you say buy a new amp first i'm currently thinking of getting a peavey 6505

would it really be worth getting some new pickups? and if so what would you recommend?
or would it just be better to buy a whole new guitar?

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
Whole new guitar, although you have 2 already! The Special is good to start on, but not really worth upgrading.
