I have a 1966 reissue epi sg. I have a fender hot rod deluxe amp. I want to get new pickups that I can play early heavy metal on, like black sabbath, but not lose the vintage blues and classic rock tone. Any pickup suggestions? I like stuff like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, George Thorogood, Sleep, pretty much any stoner rock and classic rock/heavy metal and electric blues. I play the heavier stuff less though so I'd sacrifice some heavy tone for good blues and classic rock tone.

EDIT: anyone know about GFS pickups? I'm looking to get a kit from them but get different pickups and a different neck from them
I have nothing but good experiences with GFS pickups. Does your amp have enough gain for early metal? You might have to get a pedal.

You should send an email to the guys at GFS; they'll help you out.
