Hi, I play an epiphone les paul custom siverburst, and I mainly play classic rock. I'm looking for a new set of pickups as I think I just want an upgrade. I play through a 50watt solid state randall amp, and want nice cleans, but also a thin lizzy/slash kind of overdriven tone...

So, I was wondering what pickups would be a good idea. I've looked around, and would a seymour duncan SH-2 and a seymour duncan APH-1 work?

Thanks

Maybe a good set of PAF copie would be good choice. Check out the RockMOnkey Smooth Heritage (Neck Pickup) and the Vintage Original or Blackback. What's your budget?

Seymour Duncan APH-2s are really good.

What is the specific model of Randall amp you have? Without a good amp, pickups will not usually be a step in the right direction in terms of tone, unless the stock ones you have are horrendous.

I had Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro 2 Pickups in my Epiphone and while it didn't make a vast improvement to the bridge pickup it worked wonders for the neck pickup. The Stock Epiphone ones were pretty awful...

Thanks for the responses. My budget would be around £150, and my randall is an RX50D, which I'm unlikely to be replacing any time soon...

I just put a versatile set of pups in my Epi: Seymour Duncan P-Rails. I had a set put in my Gibson LP and liked them so much I put a set into my Epi. Very versatile and I also wired them w/ a push/pull pot so I can put them in series/parallel mode along w/ 2 mini toggles to engage the three modes in many different combinations.

Well, don't expect your pickups to make you sound like Slash....The majority of his tone comes from his amp.

No fire extinguisher reference, unoriginal, no Militia flamebait, disappointing.
