does different pickups affect your tone? if it does what pickup should i get to sound like guns and roses?

Yes, they effect your tone. They effect the strength and characteristics of the magnetic field your strings vibrate through. To sound like Guns N Roses, you'll want a Les Paul with medium-high output pickups. I think Slash uses Seymour Duncan Alnico IIs. I may be wrong on that one.

I don't think Invaders are articulate enough for the sound you're looking for.

Slash does use Allinco II's.

Yay Yeah, Alnico II is a much sweeter sounding magnet than ceramic, which is what Invaders are made from. Invaders will just give you a lot of distortion and not a whole hell of a tone.

Invaers are cappy. I had Detonators, lower version of Invaders, they are so bassy I had to set my bass at 4 and my highs and mids at 9 and 10 just to get a decent sound. I would not get them. Also they were incredibly muddy an inartticulate. I'm so glad I got them changed to Bill Lawrences.
