So I'm looking for new pickups for my stock epiphone SG G-special. Im running it through a Vox Valvetronix VT30 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp. Not familiar with pickups at all. I play music that ranges from the Red Hot chillipeppers to rage against the machine. What do you guys think will compliment my setup nicely? price range is up to 225

Amp isn't so bad, but a pickup won't make enough of a difference on that guitar to make it worth it.

I suggest getting a better guitar and amp first.


+1. pickups aren't that important unless your running close to top of the line gear. Epiphone stock pups are actually pretty good, so don't worry about them unless you absolutely hate the sound.

Give me some of whatever you were high on when you heard an epiphone pup and said "Hey thats actually pretty good!" Cuz that thing can REALLY alter your senses.

Get a new guitar. I have a Vox and its fine. Its the guitar that needs changing.

If you like the SG's, try an SG G-400. Unlike alot of Epiphones they are really good value.

Cool thanks for all the advice. I guess the main reason I want to buy new pickups is because one of the ones on my guitar broke.

No, Epiphone humbuckers pretty much suck (except for the Elitists).

The P-90's aren't half bad, though.

Epi Elitist pickups suck too, but pickups are easy enough to change, what really matters is having a good guitar to put them in.

epiphone pups do NOT suck. they aren't the best, but they are pretty decent. the clean tones i get from my epi 335 are great.
