Well are there things you don't like about the sound of your Epiphones? If not then there's no point in swapping them tbh.


EDIT: I noticed you don't have them yet. I wouldn't consider swapping anything before you get them in your hands and play around with them a bit.

Save the money and get a better guitar of which you like the feel but not the sound and then change the pickups.
Seriously, if I had that money I'd buy a better guitar instead of two meh to average ones.

And then, if you really have to buy them for some reason, put them in the guitar you would use for that kinda pickups, there's no real right answer here.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Since you seem to like the LP style, why not look into similar guitars by other manufacturers, like Fernandes and ESP/LTD. The LTD EC-1000 for example...

Otherwise if you want to gut that Washburn, those pickups will be fine for one guitar.

I've played some really nice Epiphones (and some not so nice ones). If it plays well but sounds a bit shitty then sure, why not swap the pups? Just because it's an Epi doesn't automatically make it a piece of crap. That applies to a lot of guitars. Not every cheap guitar is built badly, you just have to be picky and judge them on a guitar by guitar basis.
