i am in the market for pickups.

i need two 'buckers for one of my LP's 490r/498t.

i want a moderately bit higher output than whats in there now.
i know everybody is going to scream BKP Nailbombs or Painkillers or something. if you actually have some in your LP i value your opinion, if not, dont say anything, as i think there may be some band-wagoning around here as far as they go.

i have also consider checking out BG, i have talked to him a few times in the past, but haven't purchased any from him. i don't know if he makes one that has as much output that i am looking for.

as far as others go, i don't really care for Duncans in general, i am looking at something different. also i dont like dimarzios unless they are in more of a 'shred' guitar.

if BKP is what everybody says it is, i dont have an issue of the cash on BKP or the brand, i just want to know that they are indeed the best thing before i drop $3XX on them.

i have Gibson 496R/500T in my V, they are my favorite pickups i have ever had.

i have tried X2N's and they were terrible. i don't care for the Duncan Distortion, JB, or Dimebucker. i dont like dimarzio super distortions for this guitar is not what i am looking for, i like tone zones, but have three guitars with them in there. i have one guitar with EMG's, and i dont want active pickups i also have two Gibsons with a set of Dirty Fingers on and like them, and two guitars equipped with burstbuckers, i like them.

thanks for reading through the mess.

i have thought about that, but i will not be taking them out of the V, i would probably pick a set off of ebay.

i believe the V is limited production and is miny with case and case-candy, don't want to be chopping into that.
