I would like to put some new pups in my epi flying V, it sounds decent but it isnt dirty enough,

i bought a 498R Neck pickup (gibson) its ceramic so it should be dirty,

but for a bridge i dont know if i want a 500T to match,

or maybe something alse not sure yet,

any suggestions for Drop D and alternate tuning stuff, heavy stuff?

The 498R and 500T is an actual combination that Gibson uses on the X-plorer and they are very nice. Get them and you'll love them.

They all are good, but I would go with Gibson pickups with a Gibson since they match, but a Duncan JB and Jazz pickups are good for metal. EMG-HZ pickups suck and its a pain in the ass to install active EMGs since you have to rout out a hole for the battery cavity. Even if you could put them under your pickguard or something, I wouldn't recommend it since you could strip the screws and mess up the wholes.
