Hey, i have got one of the korean made Les Paul ULTRAs from 2008. I want to update the stock pickups with some seymour duncans. Does anyone have any suggestions or ever tried anything to stay away from. I will be using my les paul for mainly things like guns n roses and things with a guns feel to it. 80's metal mainly. Apart from things like van halen and stuff cos my les paul doesnt have a trem so i use my pacer.
I have tried tone wizard and got the following results:
Heavy Metal/ Hard Rock
Bridge 1 SH-4 JB Model
Bridge 2 SH-5 Duncan Custom
Neck 1 SH-1N '59 Model
Neck 2 SH-2N Jazz Model

Rock/Classic
Bridge 1 SH-4 JB Model
Bridge 2 SH-14 Custom 5
Neck 1 SH-"N Jazz Model
Neck 2 SH-1N '59 Model

It is a chambered mahogany body. I am also considering the slash signature pickups but would prefer to stay away from signature models. Thank you.

JB/59 is a popular combo through rock and metal.

If you are looking for a Slash tone his signature Les Pauls use the standard Alnico II Pro pickups in both positions.

I have a decent amp its a Laney TF700 head with a Marshall 8412 cab. But maybe upgrading to a peavey 6505+ soon.

Anything PAF-ish will do fine for both rock and metal.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Why are u getting a Peavey 6505 if u are playing mainly GNR? THe 6505 is mostly used by modern metal bands. And it's American voiced. It's better u get something British voiced, like Marshalls, LAneys, Orange etc.
