Ok so I have a peavey 6505 combo and an epiphone sg-400 with a gibson 57 classic in the neck and 57 classic plus in bridge. I dont have any pedals. I can get good classic rock sounds but im looking to replace the bridge pup to get some heavier metal tones. Think megadeth, metallica, arch enemy, and disturbed. Any recommendations? Thanx in advance!

Probably under 150$. That way if I dont like it, I can just sell it and get somethin else. Dont know too many people who can afford bareknuckles. Know what I mean.

Seymour Duncan Distortion pickups are pretty rad, or so I hear.

Damn.. who says "rad" anymore?
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Not to get off subject, but would a jeckyll and hyde give me the sound im lookin for, or is it more than likely the pickups?

A setup of EMG 89 (neck) & EMG 60 (bridge), or a setup of Seymour Duncan Full Shred (both positions) might be the answer you need. =D

How does the l-500xl compare to the distortion, jb, xbucker, and venom for my type of sound? They are pretty cheap, so the have my attention also!

I'm gonna get the Bill Lawrence when I get a Dean (hopefully this spring/summer). Just make sure you order direct from Bill Lawrence. They're very highly renowned pickups, and will make you sound more original. I hear it's like a JB on steriods.

maybe the dave mustaine livewires


Nah, they suck
If you get one active EMG, you've basically got to get an active neck pickup too. Waaay too much complication involving wiring both passive and active pickups. I'm not too sure about US prices, but add in a few batteries to that and I think you'll be over your budget.
The best recommendation so far is the L-500XL IMO. Awesome pickup for it's money. As Shinozoku said, make sure you order from Bill or his wife to avoid the chance of getting a fake.

i gotta give it to the bill lawrence's. quality parts. i dont quite remember the models, but maybe the XL for the bridge and an L (??) for the neck?
within you lay everything

^The L is lower output than the XL, but still a bridge pickup. Neck pickups would be the R and C (rhythm and clean.)
