hi there,

i own a schecter c-1+ and want to replace the bridge pickup, the body is mahogany and i dont want EMG's or BKP Warpig because they would look stupid in my guitar, what pickups would sound good in a mahogany body guitar for playing metal and wouldn't sound to sterile!

cheers,james

if you don't want emgs or bkp warpig because of the look you are an Idi*t.
sorry I don't wanna be unfriendly, just kidding...
but don't buy something or not buy something because of the look the sound is important

but buy some nice duncans or dimarzios...

looks is part of it, the other part of it is cost BKP and fitting (EMG's)

duncans or dimarzio if you don't like EMG (whihc would be best IMO)

I think Seymour Duncan have just made or are about to release a Dave mustaine signature set of active pickups based on a JB4 and Jazz model, could be worth a look

^ he doesn't want the EMG's because they are active (he doesn't want to route the body for them to fit). If you don't want the BKP, Then I might say try a Dimarzio Super Distortion.

how about a JB4 since it isn't a ceramic magnet and want sound sterile!

There's no reason to route out the body for 90+% of guitars when installing EMGs. Most of the time, the battery will easily fit in one of the existing cavities.
