I am purchasing an alpine white epiphone les paul and wanna know wat ur guys opinions are for pickups....

I play mostly Punk, Metal, Classic rock, hard rock emo screamo. stuff like green day, muse,audioslave,rage against the machine, metalica,megadeth,my chemical romance and others.

I dont have a specific budget.

Im just wondering wat u guys reccomend from experience.

those bands aren't classic rock.
and why r u asking for pickups if ur still purchasing the LP???
did u play it? i don't think the pickups are that bad...
but i recommend Gibson Burstbucker Pros

Active EMG's.... whether you choose 81/60 combo or 81/81 or 81/85's they are all really good pickups and they would fit your style well.

Hit the brakes.

What kind of amp are you using? If you're using a bad/the wrong amp, you'll never get the tones you're looking for, no matter how many times you change pickups or how much money you dump into them.

you didn't actually list any classic rock or punk bands

so with that list id say a EMG 81/60 if you play more metal

Matt Bellemy of Muse, uses a lot of stuff such as a synth so his sound isn't the guitar
and
Bill Joe uses P-90's so you wont get his sound

I know, right!

Threadstarter, what kind of amp are you using? The majority of your tone comes from the amp. If you're just using a little solid state practice amp, new pickups aren't going to help ya.

I think a Seymour Duncan Invader would probably suit your needs.

Wrong forum.

I recently bought EMG 81/85 and put it on my Epiphone LP Standard and playing out of a Fender Princeton 65. I am quite pleased with my gear. You should put the 81 in the bridge and 85 in the neck, sounds terrific
