Hi there,
Could anyone help me decide between a Gibson SG Menace and LTD Viper 500s/VIPER-2005 30th Anniversary?
The pickups are 490R Smoky Coils (N) and 498T Smoky Coils (B) on the Gibson Menace ; and EMG 81/85 on the Viper.
I play hardcore and believe the EMGs would suit my style better, right?
Also, is anyone aware of the differences between the LTD Viper 500s and the LTD VIPER-2005 30th Anniversary?
Thanks in advance.

I'd get the Gibson because it's generally a higher quality guitar.

I've never heard of that Gibson, or smoky pickups... the LTD would probably be better for hardcore.
Gear:

Gibson 2005 Les Paul Standard
Fender Road Worn Strat w/ Noiseless pickups
Marshall JCM 2000 401C
Marshall Vintage Modern 2266
Marshall 1960A cab (Dave Hill from Slade's old cab)
Ibanez TS9DX
