I have an alder epiphone flying V with a floyd rose. I play mostly metal (Old Metallica, Children of Bodom, God Forbid, Lamb of God, Megadeth, etc.) NO nu-metal crap like disturbed or any of that grossness. Which pickups do you suggest besides EMG's? I have a Peavey Studio Pro 110 but I am getting a roland cube 60 really soon.

How about Dimarzio's or a Seymour Duncan Screamin Demon for the bridge and a 59' in the neck?

EMGs tend to be too trebly in alder bodies, EMGs are better suited for mahogany bodies.

I was thinking about one of these for the bridge http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Seymour-Duncan-LWHMET-Livewire-Metal-Humbucker?sku=300260

But what could I put in the neck that would sound really good with it and has decent clean tones?

If you are looking for great active, get Dave Mustaine's livewires, they have great cleans as well as distorted tones.

Put a 496R Hot Ceramic in the neck and a 500T Super Ceramic in the bridge. Thats what Gibson used to put in the original '67 V. And those worked and still work for metal players.
Active are ok for new metal, but for vintage metal go with old school ceramic humbuckers.

Once more into the breach...

Bill Lawrence L500xl bridge, L500c or r neck. Absolutely awesome pickups, good price too.

I believe they're ONLY available in the US.

Just for reference, Dimebag used one.

Maybe a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker for the bridge coupled with an Invader.

EMG's are often criticized as being "sterile", and I'm kind of inclined to agree with that. They might give you too much of a mall-metal tone.

You gotta order 'em online.

EDIT ColRock thingy: Those pickups aren't really so good.
#18
Yeah, I'm a bit out of my element here. Don't know too much about heavier metal pickups.

You can order L500s directly from Bill Lawrence with a phone call.
