I've got a Schecter semi-hollow C-1 (which is awesome), and I imagine I could make it more awesome by putting some sweet pickups in there. The ones in it now are "Duncan Designed," which I'm thinking is code for "knock-off." While they are certainly decent pickups, I'm thinking there's gotta be something better out there.

I was considering EMG-81s, but I always tend to see them recommended more to metalheads and I like keeping the mids around 6 or 7 on my amp. Would EMG-81s still be the best way to go?

Sorry for making you all suffer through another pickup-oriented topic.
what kind of sound are you going for? And how much are you willing to spend?
Hi, I'm Peter
What about PRS Tremonti sig pickups? Those are pretty good. I'd look at pickups with high-output Alnico Vs if I were you. Ceramics are usually pretty bright. I'm a big fan of PRS pickups and Stephen Design pickups (www.sdpickups.com ).
