I've decided to invest in a Gibson SG Standard and thinking of installing some EMG's. So I thought should I buy an SG (brand new you know out of the box) and on the EMG's I would like should be able to give me some heavy distortion like the Smashing Pumpkins but also some clean sounds also. So should I buy and brand new SG and what EMG's should I buy.

billy corgan uses strats, and james iha uses les paul customs, all stock

I thought Billy used Lace Sensors on his strat.

umm im not sure about billys gear, (he has alot!) but iha uses stock les paul customs
some 80's one and an '84
he sometimes uses an SG Custom for C tuned songs
EDIT: billy uses fender lace sensors, a blue one in the neck, and a red on the in the bridge. silver is in the middle.

if your looking for a SP sound, you really only need a Big Muff
