G'day pit,

I own this guitar (ESP LTD EX-50) and I am not happy with the tone I am currently getting. I used to love it until I got my PRS SE Custom 24 and now the tone lacks 'balls' compared to what I get with the PRS. I still have the stock ESP pick-ups in it currently, would changing these to some high gain pickups save my once loved guitar?

Thanks

yea it would, look at some EMG actives or Seymore Duncan actives. if you are looking for passives seymore duncan 59 and jazz are a great tone combo.

Cheers for the responses guys Yeah I was thinking of passives, i'll look into the SD 59's. Im actually happy with the clean tone I can get with the neck pick-up so im not looking to change that. Just the Bridge pick-up, need alot more crunch in my tone to stand up against the PRS. I really do like the feel of the ESP it's what I primarily learnt on, so I think Seymore Duncan passives it is

the 59 is a dream in the neck man, its a good choice. as for the bridge, a common combo would be the JB. yea those stock ESP's suck and i got EMG's in my 50 series. What genres/tone are you going to be playing?

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

Dimebucker - in my opinion it sounds better than EMGs
