So I have an Epiphone Goth G-400, but I play primarily metalcore and heavy metal. So, I was going to get some EMG passives to replace the stock alnico pickups in it. I'm not sure how well that would work though for creating a more metal tone since I've read that basically every guitar sound different even if they all have the same pickup. I'm not really sure how a Mahogany body Epi will sound with EMG's. Any suggestions or thoughts?
I could have, but I would rather hear what people on here have to say.

And because I don't want to deal with the whole battery mess, mainly.
