Is a Les paul okay for jazz? What would be some good pickups to put on it for Jazz/Metal?

It works for Les Paul.

Les Paul was a jazz player, so it would certainly be great for jazz.. idk about pickups tho, i dont know too much about electronics n stuff

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

lolz, but Les Paul was a more bluesy jazz player.

If you want strict jazz, then go for an ibanez artcore, they're good semi hollow bodied guitars for a reasonable price. I myself have a Hammer Echotone, and love it to death, good luck finding one of those though lol.

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

It'd work for ligher jazz, maybe a cooler 'bucker in the neck or bridge, depending on taste.

I use my Les Paul Classic with a 496 in the neck for jazz. It is high output but you can get a smooth sound if you wanted to. It works for metal too. Also the bridge pickup is very hot, so its also good for metal
