Im getting a new guitar not too sure what yet but ive been looking into ESP specifacly LTD deluxe EC-1000 but im not sure which one to get. I play Lots of Classic rock, led zeppelin , acdc , rush ,eric clapton, scorpions etc and some metal metallica , megadeth, judas priest , black sabbath, etc. I also play blues but im never going to find a guitar for metal and blues. so what pick ups would be better SEYMOUR DUNCAN JB (B) / 59 (N) ZEBRA PICKUPS or EMG 81 (B) / 60 (N) ACTIVE PICKUPS or I could always change the pick ups to something eslse????

My guitars
-Ibanez GRX40
-Norman B50 (acoustic)
My Amps
-Ibanez 10 watt
-Vox valvetronix AD100VT
My pedals
-Boss SD-1

Since you don't go too heavy and require more versatility, SD's are the way to go.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

And if Dave (and me) who think Duncans are overrated say Duncan, get Duncan.

EMG pickups SUCK.

I had an 81 (bridge) and 60 (neck) in my Oscar Schmidt.. and they were disgusting. Too much feedback!!!

Now I have a Gibson Dirty Fingers in the Bridge and some Seymour Duncan in the neck.. much better.
My gear:

MIJ Squier Stratocaster

Washburn WR150 Quilted Top

Oscar Schmidt Semi-hollow Delta King

Epiphone Hummingbird

Amps: Fender Eighty-Five
