So i'm thinking about changing my pickups sometime soon, but i really don't know what to get. I've been considering EMGs, but i've heard alot of mixed feedback from people. My pet genre is metal, in particular death metal, but i do occasionally venture into some other genres.

So any suggestions, UG? If I haven't provided enough information, feel free to ask me any questions. Thanks

if you have a good amp you get the most out of them, what are you using gear wise?

Depending on what amp you're using changing your pickups may have a very minute effect on your tone.

The amp is a Kustom Arrow 16DFX, quite a cheap one, which i'm planning on changing soon too. The guitar is an Ibanez RG. Not sure which model though. I think it's RG321. Thanks guys

Get a new amp first. Amp is 90% of your tone. Your not gonna here much of a difference in pups through that amp either.

First you put your pants on your head.
Second you dance.
Third you wipe off all the pussy.

Yeah true, but the thing is that my neck pup is kinda "broken". But yeah i guess amp is more important. While i'm at it, can i ask for amp suggestions too?

yeah, not gonna lie, emg's aren't my cup of tea, but through a quality amp, like a good tube head, then you can get a pretty darn good tone, not what i love, but still, i would use it, so change amp first i would say
Ibanez RG5EX1
Ibanez RG7321
