Hello UGs

I recently got the LTD EC-256 with ESP LH-150 PUPs. I like their sound but i feel that they dont have my desired high output.
Are they any good or should be replaced? and if so, should be replaced by standard or F-spaced PUPs?

I play classic rock (Zeppelin, Pink Floyd), 80s rock & metal.

cheers

Def EMGs for metal

But they won't do classic rock the best they'll lose some of the.... feel

But you can always roll back the volume knob on the guitar to get a less grainy feel but it won't be as good as having proper pickups for classic rock

I suggest EMGs if you play more than 60% metal on the guitar (81/85s) seem to be the most common

I'd suggest some Duncans or Dimarzio's... Maybe a Custom-5 and a Jazz in the neck?


As an owner of this combo. I agree.

And to the guy defending EMG's:

#10
Dimarzio... Steve's Special & Air Norton combo will sound great, or if you want a bit more of that classic rock sound, a Super Distortion in the neck instead of the Steve's Special.

...and a big NO for the EMGs.

In this situation, +1000.

Give the site a good look-see, and figure out if any of them sound like what you're going for.
