I've decided that my epi LP custom needs a pickup change. I need a set of pickups that are hotter and handle gain without turning to mud.

I want a fairly hot bridge pup largely for playing megadeth, metallica, pantera, ACDC etc. type tones, something thats screams! But at the same time I'd like some reasonable cleans.

I also want a neck pup thats great with cleans and well defined (As I'm getting into sweeping) but also that handles distortion well (Not so important).

I want to go with GFS pups (Since Im on a budget) and at this stage I was going to get a set of crunchy pats. Has anyone got any other suggestions?
The gear:

* Epiphone Les Paul Custom
* Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 String
* Fender Squier P Bass
* Blackstar Stage HT-60
* Original Crybaby
* EHX Small Clone
* Boss DD-3

Well i really find the SD JB/Jazz set in my Schecter, i bet it would sound equally awesome in your Les Paul. Your's might sound a little deeper because of the thicker body but that would sound great anyways, besides that they are similar guitars so i think it would sound pretty good in it.

Didn't make it to the last paragraph eh?

Crunchy pats sound like they could work for you.

Also, what amp are you using?

Bridge: Iron Gear Steam Hammer

Better pickups than GFS IMO.
