I just decided that i want to mod my ep lp black beauty to turn it into a meaner beast i would like to know what 3 pickups i should use and wheter it is worth changing the bridge and everything else i will probs get a custom scratch plate and truss rod cover and a gibson decal to go over the ep one but i need to know what pickups i need to get to see how much they cost i mostly play metal/rock and was thinkin either gibson lp pickups or emgs or semour duncans or something

Not EMG's, look at some Bareknuckle pickups.

And if you get a Gibson decal, I'll come and kill you. Be proud that you've got an Epi.

That was very hard to read, use periods . Seymour Duncans are great for that crunchy rock n roll sound (think Guns N' Roses). EMG's are good pickups too especially if you play metal. EMG 81's and 85's are probably what you would want.

The Barenuckles will probably be more versitile too, and yea, they'll have umph.
